This article helps our Volunteer Squad keep the database clean and consistent! It pertains to members who have Coordinator access. If you're interested in getting involved, read more about joining the Squad here. We'd love to have you aboard!
To merge items go to Curation > Manage Database Items and find the two items to merge (if you need to merge three items, merge two first and then the remaining two). Mark them and click to the Batch Actions button, then click Merge:
It will then let you chose which Database Item to keep and if there are more than one which image to make the Main Photo and which UPC code to keep:
Please note that photos, Items in Collections, Items for Sale, Wish List items and Price Points get merged over but other information does not. So if there is information in the Description, Attributes, or External Links on the item that gets merged in, transfer that information first via the Edit Form.
The Squad member who created the the older of the two items will remain as the creator of the merged item.
Items with Relationships currently can't be merged. The site will report a successful merge, but the items will remain separate. Before trying to merge items, remove any Relationships from the item that won't be kept.
