CleanEnter Help: salesforce.com

CleanEnter is a real-time duplicate detection service embedded in salesforce.com. 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 saleforce.com and when you convert a Lead. New record creation is initiated via the Create New... menu in the salesforce.com sidebar, or any of the New buttons throughout the CRM.

When you create a new record, CleanEnter will automatically search salesforce.com for potential duplicates. You can use the results to decide whether to use an existing record or to create a new record.

To use CleanEnter, enter the search terms for the new record that you want to create and click Search.

CleanEnter

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.

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 salesforce.com, 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.

If the Contact is already associated with an Account, then the converted record will remain associated with that Account. If the Contact does not have an associated Account, then the converted record will be associated with the Account that you select during Lead Conversion.

You can also create a new Opportunity at the bottom of the Lead Conversion page.
