What Recognize As Same Person is (with my data)

Recognize As Same Person is a function that finds multiple business cards with the same first and last names, and then allows you to manage these as one person. It will keep the business card information up to date, and you can keep track of the careers and departments people have been in. Here we will give brief introduction to Recognize As Same Person. 


Main Point

  • Recognize As Same Person works with the business cards you have, and so business cards held by other users are not handled by this function.
  • Recognize As Same Person decides which business card is more recent based on the date the business card was received.

* Business cards with a blank date received will be considered to be the oldest card. If all cards have blank dates received, then no judgement can be made. If you would like to specify which one is newer and which is older, please input a date received or please change the order after Recognize As Same Person is complete.


Types and conditions for Recognize As Same Person

Recognize As Same Person can be broadly divided into two categories, automatic recognition and manual recognition. In either case, this process is not done at the same time that the card is registered; a certain amount of time is required before the process will be complete. This process only handles business cards that you have. Cards held by others will not be considered.
