Note that merging contacts will combine all associated information, including activities, notes, and attachments. This action cannot be undone, so be sure to review all data carefully before completing the merge. Additionally, merging contacts may have an impact on related records, such as opportunities, so it’s important to communicate with any stakeholders affected by the merge.
