Scenario for Duplicate Records

You work for an insurance organization. A customer, Paula Laine, calls to review her home insurance policy. You ask Ms. Laine for her policy number, and enter the policy number in the
Search
bar.
In the search results, you select the record that contains the policy number, and open the record in the
Business Entity
view. You confirm a few personal details and then answer Ms. Laine's questions about her policy.
After you answer her questions, you ask Ms. Laine if she has any other policies. Ms. Laine tells you that she has an automobile policy registered with a subsidiary of your organization. You enter the automobile policy number in the
Search
bar, and the search returns the record that contains the automobile policy. You verify that the personal data matches the data in the other record.
After you end the conversation, you open the record that contains the home policy in the
Matching Records
view. From the similar records, you select the record that contains the automobile policy. You click
Preview
and verify that both policies appear in the Policies section. In addition, you can see that the merged record is more complete overall, with data such as Ms. Laine's middle name and her mobile phone number coming from different source records. When you are satisfied that the merge preview represents the best version of the truth, you start the merge process.
