Data Quality

There are a number of data quality views that someone should regularly use to clean up data.  This list is not exhaustive, but using these views will go a long way in keeping your data tidy.  

You may not have all of these views on your system; feel free to contact me and I will be happy to share examples.

Assign a user to the Data Quality Team user group so that he/she can access these views.

Contacts Page

This is not a view, but someone should clean up duplicates regularly using this tool.

Fix: Mismatched People

Shows 6 types of mismatches: 1-3) The Participant, Donor, or User is not referring back to this Contact, 4-6) There are more than one Participant, Donor, or User record referring to this Contact.  Go into each record and unassign or reassign one of these connections.

Fix: Same Email No Relationship

Households Page

Fix: Too Many Heads

Group Participants Page

Fix: Past Group End Date
