Export additional fields in master/non-master files to simplify deduplication of accounts based on results of deduplication scenario run on contacts
I have a dedupe process that involves merging accounts based on the results of a deduplication scenario run on contacts. It would be very useful if the field selected for extra field logging is included in exported master/non-master files, so that I could use an exported master/non-master file to merge accounts without doing any additional data manipulation.
As it stands I have to do some pretty cumbersome manipulation in Excel to get the master account id and non-master account id in separate columns, and this throws a wrench in attempts to automate via JobBuilder (automation is technically possible by hacking together a solution that involves .exe files and Excel marcos, but this is not a robust solution).
In addition to the use case described above, this simple feature would open up a number of possibilities that would be very useful to my organization, such as:
- automatically de-duping contacts based on the results of a de-dupe scenario run on a custom email address object (where Email_Address__c is a child of Contacts)
- automatically de-duping accounts based on the results of a de-dupe scenario run on a custom address object (where Address__c is a child of Accounts)
