Merging duplicate companies containing business data
We all know it, duplicate companies can exist in Upsales. These are sometimes created by integrations making a bad decision creating a duplicate, or simply by two users adding the same company.
There is a merge feature for companies in Upsales that fixes this, but it's important to check if any of these two duplicate companies has business data added to it. The one with the additional business data is probably the one you'd like to keep.
The merge features uses one company as primary and the other one as a secondary. The secondary company doesn't replace any information on the primary company but simply fills out the blanks. Make sure your primary company is the one containing the additional business data.
