Clean Up Duplicate Sacrament Places

You should regularly review the list of sacrament places for possible duplicates.

Note: You can also clean up duplicate sacrament places during the Clean Up Data process.
  1. On the File menu, click Sacrament Setup > Sacrament Place Names and Addresses.
  2. Click the Clean Up Duplicates tab.
  3. For each line in the grid, review the matching churches and determine which duplicates need to be combined.
    Tip: To view a list of member records where a place's information is being used, click Print Usage in that place's column.
  4. Select the checkbox beside the line you want to clean up.
  5. Below the grid, the columns display information from each sacrament place. Select the name, address, email, phone, and diocese information you want to keep.
  6. Repeat this for each line of duplicates you want to clean up.
  7. When you're finished, click Combine Selected.

The information that you did not select will be removed from any member records. It is replaced with the information you selected to keep.
