New Feature - Merge Places

Postby Vespucci41 » Tue Dec 11, 2018 12:09 pm

Hey all,

As you saw from the last release we enabled the long awaited Merge Places feature.
The feature will enable you to multi select venues, that are close enough, and merge them.
You will be able to merge 2 or more venues and choose the data that will be shown in the new merged venue.

In order to start the process select 2 venues using Ctrl+Mouse Click (Cmd+Mouse Click on Mac) and in the side bar you will be able to which of the venue the data will be merged.

Once you choose one of the target venue a pop up will open where you'll be able to review the information from the venues and choose what data will be merged.

You will be able to choose:

- Lock Level
- Category
- External Provider
- Website

- Select the pictures

Once reviewed all the info, you can complete the merge process by clicking on Merge and Save.

Happy Merging,
Ruben

This is a great feature!
Thank you for bringing it to production.

Is there any integration of this feature with the PUR "duplicate" flag?

Does this bring any photos over from the place being merged into another place?
