CleanEnter Help: Microsoft Dynamics
CleanEnter is a real-time duplicate detection service embedded in Microsoft Dynamics. It searches your records and helps prevent the creation of duplicate records during manual entry. CleanEnter utilizes the powerful Fuzzy matching algorithms that ActivePrime's tools are known for. CleanEnter easily identifies nicknames, misspellings, phonetic variations, international characters, and searches within a field, allowing for efficient identification of existing Accounts, Contacts, and Leads..
CleanEnter is automatically launched whenever you create a new Account, Contact, or Lead in Microsoft Dynamics. New record creation is initiated via the +NEW button in the Microsoft Dynamics top bar, or any of the New buttons throughout the CRM.
Also, New record creation can be initiated by clicking + at the top menu.
After clicking on the +, a sub menu will be displayed, select the record type to create and CleanEnter will be launched.
Creating New Records with CleanEnter
When you create a new record, CleanEnter will automatically search Microsoft Dynamics for potential duplicates. You can use the results to decide whether to use an existing record or to create a new record.
Searching for Potential Duplicates
To use CleanEnter, enter the search terms for the new record that you want to create and click Search.
You can type in a variation of the term for the search field, the full term, or a portion of the term. CleanEnter uses inexact or fuzzy matching to identify potential duplicates within records. Please note that search terms with less than three characters may return undesirably broad results.
Understanding Your Results
CleanEnter will search your records for potential duplicates and the results will be displayed on screen. Each search result will have a match score indicating how close of a match it is to your original search term. You can sort the matches by clicking on any column header in the results.
If there are no suitable matches and you would like to create a new record, click Create at the bottom of the CleanEnter page. This will redirect you to the new record creation page in Microsoft Dynamics, where you can enter details and save your new record.
In the search results, click View next to any record to see detailed information. Click Go Back to return to the search results list.
