Saving new Identify Records in Validate
Possible Duplicates Found
The organization may already exist in the Identify Database.
When saving a new organization record, the Validate system will search existing names, alt names and URLs for possible duplicate data. If discovered, a list of potential duplicate matches will be displayed:
Check to make sure the new organization record you have made is NOT in the list of possible duplicates.
If the record that you are trying to save already exists in the database, please abandon the process. Use the existing Ringgold ID. You can then go back to the home page or add a different organization instead.
Saved Record Confirmation
Upon saving a new organization record, you will be presented with your saved data and a new Ringgold Identifier. You many now use this ID. New records will appear in Identify Online within one working day.
Rejected Ringgold IDs
If you have saved new records which we later find to be duplicates, a report in Excel format will be sent within one working day listing the duplicate record with suggested replacement Ringgold IDs. Please let us know if you would like us to remove your duplicate records.
You will also get an on-going statistical summary, plus an overview report at the end of each month:
