Advanced Actions

The Advanced Actions menu lets you switch between Group and Pair View, select a number of discard options, share the contents of one group or pair with your colleagues,  delete records in the group or pair, or process the records of the group or pair further with a DAP (Data Action Platform) action in the Action Launcher. 

Read more about the Group and Pair Views below.
Read more about the Discard options in Discarded Items‍.
Selecting the Action Launcher here will apply an action to all records in the group. To apply an action to selected records only, click the Action Launcher  button at the top of the results group.
Read more about bulk editing records with the DAP Action Launcher in Execute an action in list view.

Group View

By default the Job Detail page opens with the Group View. Each group shows all records that are duplicates of each other. 

For performance reasons, the groups are initially shown in closed state, but you can set the page to open all groups by default.‍ 

In group view, you can merge all records in a group, or select which ones to merge. 

Two records are selected to be merged, discarded, or further processed with the Action Launcher

Pair View

In a group, open the Advanced Actions menu to view the records of that group in pair view. The pair view page shows every individual match of a group in pairs. The logic used is "A matches with B", "A matches with C", "A matches with D", etc. The returned matching score for every pair is also shown, as well as the name of the scenario this is based on.

Next to the Merge/Quick Merge/Convert/Quick Convert options for each group, where you merge or convert all records in the entire group, you also have the Merge/Quick Merge/Convert/Quick Convert options for pairs, where you only merge or convert one pair in the group.
