We just released some more merging enhancements:
1. We are now removing requested merges from the list of matches on a profile. Let's say for example there is a profile for Fred Berry that has one match and you have approved that match. Fred Berry's profile will no longer show that there is a match, and Fred will be removed from your list of profiles that have matches. This should make working through the tree matches tab of your merge center as efficient as the profile merges tab.
2. We've updated the columns in the merge center to make them more consistent. We've also updated the sorting options.
3. When viewing data conflicts, a new icon indicates any fields that are supported by sources. Click on the icon to view the source(s).
4. Finally, instead of seeing the "Profile id#XXXX has been merged into a different profile" error, you will now see a link to another profile merge that you must complete first.
We've also found some pending merges that were not converted to the new merge center, so there may be a one time increase in the number of profile merges in your list. I'm sure we'll work through these quickly.
Love the new enhancements, now any new matches are actually new to me and I don't have to go through pages of people just to find profiles I have't approved for a merge.
Now, if I would be able to choose which of my collaborators I would like to see in my Merge Center, it would be beautiful. Or at least sort them by manager.
I know that Geni made some more changes in the Merge Center yesterday, but I am completely confused because suddenly my Profile Merges (merges pending) list is increasing exponentially. It went from 300 yesterday to 1200 this morning and in the last hour has gone to 1700. Why exactly has it increased so much? (This is *without* including my collaborators)
Hundreds of the merges pending say they were last updated TODAY but in the UPDATED BY column it says in italics, Account Deleted. What is going on? How can someone with a deleted account be making updates today?
There are still some outstanding issues we are working on and hope to have resolved today:
1. The number of issues is increasing because we are running a script to popular your profile merges tab with merges we missed the first time around. Mine has more than tripled! The good news is, once this is done (hopefully today?), all the possible merges will be visible for all of us to work on.
2. Counts are not updating properly right now. When you switch include collaborators on or off, the count will not be updated right away, but the list will. The count will update eventually. Also, when you complete or request merges, the count is not updating right away. We are trying to fix both of these issues today.
Pam Wilson unchecking the include collaborators filter should show you only profiles managed by you.
@Noah Gregory Tutak Noah, that doesn't work since the Include Collaborators filter is already unchecked and 90% of the profiles listed are managed by other people, not myself. I'm assuming that the reason they are included is that I am a shared manager on them--but I want to to see the ones for which I am Primary Manager.
Can you fix the problem with missing profiles on the Data Conflicts Tab? For some reason, it shows one less than the total count.
The Merge Center has still bugs...
For historicals it lists somebody 5...40 times, each row gives only possibility to merge/to solve pending merge of just pair.
Why I shall click to profile name (and from there: "View her other profiles and complete the pending merges.") instead "View Pending Merge" to get access to all stacked merges (row at lower part of the page)? Why these stacked merges are not accessible from "View Pending Merge" (then shall will be no need to display the same names many times in pending merges list)?
If you see several copies of a name, then click on the name, rather than the complete merge link, and you will get the profile as if you came in from the tree. Then you can easily get to the familiar carousel.
This would be even easier if we could sort the merge center by name, then we would know if there was a stack.
