Improvements to Merge

I spend a LOT of time merging social profiles with voter profiles - maybe I am doing something wrong...

I'm sure there is some clever stuff that can be done with improving the duplicate detection but the low hanging fruit is to make it a lot easier to do the duplicate merge.  

From the  people, list  view there should be,   in addition to or instead of the pull down carrot in the top right, a checkbox that you can use to do things to checked records.   If  you check multiple records you should then be able to ... Merge, add to list , delete etc so that you don't have to operate on each record separately.    I can send a quick image of this...  

Vote this up!



Thanks Charles - there isn't a timeline to make any change to merging at the moment but this is very helpful. There are some other suggestions around merges that you might want to follow as well.
