Nimble allows merging people records or company records. (If you merge company records - the people records under the companies will be brought together under one company).
Note: You may merge up to 4 contacts at a time in Nimble.

To Merge Duplicate Contact Records

1. Go to your Contacts Tab (list view) and select 2 or more duplicate records
2. At the top of the list, click on Merge

To Find Duplicate Contact Records

1. Select a contact record you suspect has a duplicate

2. Click on the arrow button next to "Log activity" and select Find/Merge Duplicates

3. Check box the duplicate contact(s) and click on Merge


When you first import contacts to Nimble, we automatically match and merge duplicates based on our special merge algorithm. For most of the import options in your Settings >> Networks & Imports page, we merge duplicates automatically on email address alone. There are two exceptions to this:

  • When importing from Twitter, we merge contacts based on Twitter handle alone.
  • When importing from a CSV file, we give the option to merge duplicate contacts based on email alone, or merge by name if there is no email match. You may also choose to merge duplicate companies based on domain or email, or by name if there is no domain/email match.

If you have any questions, please write us at, initiate a chat from this FAQ, or join one of our Nimble Onboarding and Best Practices sessions, held every weekday at 9 AM PT.
