This is the partner managers' tool to exclude double work and broken communication through fore-handed exposure of duplicates of contacts: customers, suppliers, any Odoo partners
Real-time duplicates search
The apps check possible duplicates each time a user opens or saves partners. It means that the search is done in real time and takes into account all recent changes.
Duplicates are shown on kanban, tree, and form views. Using the special button you can open candidates to check whether those are actual duplicates. Besides, users may select possible copies by applying the filter 'Potential Duplicates'.
Since the search is done in real-time Odoo has to check all shown records for duplicates among all existing records. For example, when you open customers' kanban with 80 items, and you have 10,000 partners, the tool make 80 searches by your criteria among 10000 documents. It may result in slowdowns of the following operations:
- Opening kanban and list views of Odoo contacts
- Saving changes after update of partners
The tool is optimized to make searches as efficient as Odoo ORM allows it. Simultaneously, with a growing number of documents a search will become slower.

Configurable duplicates' criteria
Duplicates are defined according to set of rules which you define. A rule is a field by which an item is considered as copy, e.g. email or unique number. A document is considered as a duplicate, if it satisfies any of criteria
As a duplicate criteria use any stored field of the following types: char (name, email, phone, mobile, etc.), text (descriptions), many2one (e.g, reference for a parent company), selection (for instance, type), date and datetime (e.g. birthday), integer and float (any unique code or even a credit limit).
For all field a duplicate should have absolutely the same value (e.g. '123' = '123', but '123' is not equal '1234'). Only for the case of soft search by char fields it is the operator 'ilike'. Thus, 'agro' is considered to be a potential duplicate of 'Agrolait' (but Agrolait is not considered as a duplicate of 'agro').
You may also restrict search only for companies and stand-alone individuals. If the option is checked, Odoo will search only for and only among partners without parent.
Configure soft and rigid criteria to search duplicates of contacts
Rigid or soft duplicates
The tool let you both strictly avoid duplicates and/or just warn of those. Use rigid criteria to fully exclude duplicates creation. Odoo would not allow salespersons to save a partner, if any duplicates were found by rigid rules.
Use soft criteria to warn salespersons of possible duplicates but not restrict them in such duplicates creation. An instance access to potential duplicates is available from form and kanban views.
Users can't save a partner if there is a rigid duplicate found
Warn salespersons of possible contact duplicates
Compatible with Odoo standard features
The module supports multi companies. Duplicates are searched within a certain company. Thus, there might be equal objects related to different corporates.
Found partners' duplicates might be merged through the standard Odoo merging tool.
