Can Merged Contacts be "Recovered"?

Knowledge Article Number 000187509
Description Can Merged Contacts be "Recovered"?

Yes-when two Contact records are "merged", the record chosen as the "master" will be saved-and the duplicate record will go to the Recycle Bin.  On the Contact History of the Master Record, you will see "Contact Merged With XXXXXX" appear.  (XXXXX referring to the record in the Recycle Bin".


Technically someone could go into the Recycle Bin at this point, and restore the "Duplicate"/Deleted record-but doing so will not affect the Master Record with the "Contact Merged With XXXXXX" stamp in it's Contact Record.
