Since purls are customized using a first and last name duplicate records in Purlem are contacts that have the same first and last name.
If Campaign #1 has a Joe Smith and later a Joe Smith is added to Campaign #2, the second "Joe Smith" will be considered a duplicate record - IF Campaign #1 and Campaign #2 have the same domain. Purlem will auto-corrects duplicate entries both when uploading multiple contacts and adding them one at a time. Here is an example of how Purlem will handle duplicate records across three different campaigns.
|Campaign #1||Joe Smith||http://domain.com||/Joe.Smith|
|Campaign #2||Joe Smith||http://domain.com||/Joe.Smith123|
|Campaign #3||Joe Smith||http://newdomain.com||/Joe.Smith|
By default, Purlem will assign duplicate records a random 3 digit identifier. You also can select an alternate field to append duplicates. To do so, follow the steps below:
1. Navigate to your campaign settings.
2. Find the Duplicates optionsUnder the campaigns tab the duplicates option the dropdown should display a variety of alternatives to using a random three digit number.
