Apptivo apps allow users to validate the records while creating a new record from your iOS application. You can set the duplication rule on how to validate the records with Actual or fuzzy logic. In addition, you can also set the duplication rule to validate across the other apps.

If you want to implement or utilize this feature, then you will need to configure the settings from your Apptivo’s web version.

Steps to Create

  • Login and access the Suppliers app from the universal navigation panel.
  • Click on the More(…) details and select Settings.
  • On the Settings page, click on “General → Duplication Rules" from the left navigation panel.
  • Enable the toggle to define the criteria.
  • Set the option either to Prevent Duplication automatically or Warn and Flag Duplication for review.

  • Click on the Create button and enter the following details:
  • Rule Name: Name of the criterion.
  • You can view the Validate Other apps toggle, enable the Toggle to validate the Supplier record with records across other apps.
