Duplicate contacts can appear in Syngency for a variety of reasons. Typically this will occur if agents don't check if a contact exists for a client or company before adding them to Syngency, or use a slightly different spelling.
This can become further complicated if agents have then created bookings for the different duplicate contacts.
You can easily merge duplicate contacts into one, from the dropdown menu below the Save button in the Details tab of the contact you want to remove.
From the Merge Contacts window, search for and select the contact you want to keep.
When you click Merge, Syngency will reassign any of the following that belong to the current contact, to the contact you have selected:
- Talent (if the contact is a Mother Agency)
- Mother Agency Invoices
Please note that at this time, Attachments and any contact details are not merged.
Once that has been done, the current contact will be deleted.
