Contacts - Merge Multiple Contacts

Started by Daniel Grant in Feature Requests | Idea

With the latest Contacts interface update, we've lost the ability to merge multiple contacts at once. This is a huge time saver when cleaning up files. Now it is very cumbersome to have to click into each contact to merge individually. Please restore the feature to merge multiple contacts at once.

Thanks for raising this, Daniel. We understand you could previously bulk merge your contacts from the contacts list, but as we've changed the way merging contacts works in Xero, this is no longer available.

You can now merge contacts from the contact details screen, which doesn't allow you to do this in bulk. At this stage, we will not be rebuilding merge in other parts of Contacts. We'll continue to enhance and improve Contacts as we roll out changes though, so if plans do change here, we'll let you know.
