Country name normalization is the process of standardizing the data in the country name field. Standardized country data improves reporting because it ensures that all of your data for a specific country exists in a single country category.
Normalized country data improves reporting because it ensures that all of the data for a specific country exists in a single country category. You can also enable
to add the country ISO code to the record. When you enable country name normalization,
replaces multiple nonstandard names against a single standard name. When you enable country name validation, you cannot enter a country name that does not appear in the international settings. You can also enable
to validate the country data that a user enters.
For example, if a user enters U.S.A. or United States of America, you can configure
to replace these terms with USA.
The country ISO code is important for fuzzy matching for the following reasons:
uses the ISO code as the first two characters of the fuzzy matching segment by default.
You can configure
to disregard matches if the country codes are not identical.
