Attachments in NXT do not save when merging records in db view

When adding an attachment to a constituent record in NXT then merging this record to another in database view, the attachment is no longer visible on the merged record.

At this time, there are NXT specific web view fields that do not automatically merge when merging constituent records in the database view, and we are currently evaluating this issue to work toward a resolution.  

Currently, the Attachments that are added in web view will not be saved or moved when merging constituents in the database view.  If users are receiving a Warning message when merging, check the list of how the records will be affected during the merge.  

Steps to Duplicate

  1. Add an Attachment via NXT webview on one constituent record
  2. In the database view, open this constituent select Merge> Merge [Constituent A] into another constituent
  3. Select another constituent to merge into
  4. Merge all items and delete source constituent
  5. Open the merged record in the web view, and go to the Attachments panel
  6. Note the Attachment that was added to Constituent A from the web view was not merged
