Getting Multiple Matches With Your Customers

After a match, you might have multiple matches on your list.  

This happens when your values match more than one customer. For example, if a vehicle was sold or transferred to a new customer, it may be associated with more than one customer.

You can then unmatch the customers who no longer fit with your value.

  1. Select the filter Multiples.
  2. Unmatch the customer who no longer fits with your value.

Unmatching Values and Customers

In a data-matched list, you can always unmatch values from a customer. For example, if a customer changes their vehicle, they may no longer need to be on that list. 

  1. Select your name at the top right corner of your screen.
  2. Select Data matching.
  3. Select the list where you wish to unmatch a value and a customer.
  4. By going over your customer's name with your mouse, an Unmatch button will appear on the right of your customer's name.
  5. Select Unmatch.

You can always rematch the customer or match a value to a new customer.

Rematching a Value and a Customer

If you unmatched a value and a customer, you can always rematch them.

In fact, after unmatching a customer with a value, Kimoby will leave them together until you match the value with a new customer or rematch the value and the customer. 

  1. Select your name at the top right corner of your screen.
  2. Select Data matching.
