The purpose of this article is to demonstrate how a user can use the duplicate checker function in the AIM Family Directory. This is specifically going to explain how to resolve duplicate Families that you already have family DUID's for. You will need to know which family is the master and which is the duplicate for the purpose of this demonstration.
Log in to AIM Family Directory with the following credentials
Password: Either "dupecheck" or "dupechecker"
At the Top of the Family Directory Choose Utilities > Duplicate Checker > Resolve Family Duplicates
Resolve Known Duplicate Using FamilyID
Enter Master Family DUID and Duplicate Family DUID
Go Through the next prompts until you get to the family members page and choose whether you want to merge the members together or create new member records in the master family.
One Final confirmation that you want to merge the families (at which point you will get the Warning that this is irreversible)
Choose whether you want to merge the records immediately or if you want to have them merged over night. If you choose now it may affect performance for other users while they merge but if you choose overnight then it will put it on hold until the nightly process is running.
