Is there a way to merge two contact files without losing information or having to retype (going back and forth) and then delete one of the files

Thanks for posting. If you are adding a file of contacts there isn't a way to merge duplicates. If you are adding one contact at a time you will see a popup to merge duplicates instead of adding the contact a second time. Can you tell me more about which technique you are using to add contacts to the account?

This isn't about when we ADD a file of contacts. This is about contacts already in our in account.

 

Before the big update, the data was all email address-driven. One email address, one contact.

 

So now I have existing contacts that I need to merge and I do not want to lose the history of any email address. I.e., one email list import included one email address and a different import used a different email address for that same contact. So it imported the information as a second contact and now there are two contact records in the database for the same contact - one for each email address with its own history. This has happened multiple times in the past since the software was email address driven.

Now I have contacts that need to be merged/combined but I don't want to lose the history for any email address.
