Lead Duplicate Rule for Integrations

If your association imports leads into Nimble AMS from a spreadsheet or automatically via an integration, you can create a duplicate rule that allows the import of potential duplicates but reports on it for staff to address.

This recipe uses YM Careers as the example for the integration source, but you can change the configuration to apply to other integrations or to all leads, regardless of the source. Learn more about the 193953830.

    If YM Careers is not an available picklist value, you will need to add it to the Lead's Lead Source field. Learn how to Add or Create a New Lead Source.

This duplicate rule's conditions are such that it only runs for integrations created or edited by the YM Careers integration. You can modify this so it runs for other integrations, or more broadly for all leads. You can also create more than one lead duplicate rule, each with their own actions, matching rules, and conditions.

We do not recommend configuring the duplicate rule such that the Action on Create/Edit is Block, or that it is set to Allow with Alert enabled. Either of these configurations will prevent the integration from creating/updating a lead in Nimble AMS that triggers this duplicate rule, which means the integration will not function correctly.
