Improve duplicate prevention and matching logic
It would be great to see improvements in the matching logic Give Lively uses when choosing to update existing contacts or create new.
1) Donor makes a gift as email@example.com. Jane Doe's Email address and Work Email in Salesforce is recorded as firstname.lastname@example.org, but her Personal Email is email@example.com. Currently, Give Lively would create a new contact instead of updating the existing.
2) Donor makes a gift as firstname.lastname@example.org. Salesforce has a lead with the email address of email@example.com, as well as two different contact records with the same email address. Give Lively picks one and associates the gift. It would be better if the administrator could be alerted to the multiple matches, and given a chance to select which one is correct.
