Error: Error saving record: Only one Primary phone per type is allowed

Validation Error: Only one Primary phone per type is allowed, when importing new Primary phone numbers in the Raiser's Edge when there is an existing Primary Phone number with that Phone Type.
Unable to Add new primary phone number through import when an existing phone number exists with the same phone type
We have evaluated this issue as a bug and we have determined it will not be addressed in the program in its current state.  In this case, we believe the risks and challenges outweigh the potential benefit of resolving this issue. We strive to select the most impactful changes and issues to address with each release to accelerate the rate at which we deliver new features while sustaining the highest level of quality for our customers. We would certainly recommend adding this program suggestion to our Ideas Community page.  Our developers check here first when building program enhancements to see what our users are most interested in seeing implemented.

Alternative solution:
  1. Remove primary flag option from the import
  2. Import new/update existing phones but create an output query in the import
  3. Use this query with the Mark Phones Primary plug-in to update the primary flag for the relevant phone types
