Make Duplicate Checking settings part of the Import Wizard

I have, for the umpteenth time, got half way through the import wizard only to remember I haven't checked or modified the Duplicate Checking settings in Tools>Preferences>Admin Tab, so had to abandon the import wizard, amend the settings then start all over again.


And lets face it, getting these settings right is critical to making the import work properly.


Would it not be extremely helpful and logical to be able to (a) see what the current Duplicate Settings are when in the import wizard AND (b) to be able to modify them on the fly whilst doing the import?


In fact, these settings used for import should be independent of the standard background settings, otherwise you forget to return the regular settings to what the were before the import.

I have been burned on this multiple times. Great suggestion.

The entire Duplicate Check and Merge process needs to be reviewed and improved. The current process is cumbersome and needs to be more User friendly. The work done by Patricia Egan with her Duplicate Remover Expert  is a good example of where we should be heading with this.

+1 for improving dup checking across the board.
