When adding a Maiden name on a constituent record under Personal information, it is automatically added as Alias, but left Type is blank and there is no option to select a Type. This could cause duplicate records to be created,
This is functioning as it should. There are a few reasons why it functions this way, such as:
- This allows them to perform a constituent search for a maiden name without an extra step. - Duplicate detection considers Aliases, which would be beneficial regardless of whether or not the Alias had a type
Any changes in this functionality that are needed can be addressed by a customization, if desired.
