It would be great if it was possible to expand on the fuzzy matching capabilities already in the system with the Levenshtein Distance function by introducing additional options, such as:
  • Jaccard Index of SImilarity (used by the Excel Fuzzy Lookup add-in - https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=15011)
  • Soundex or Metaphone algorithm
This would enable advanced duplicate detection capabilities in the system

  • We do have the MetaPhone3 algorithm already and while the video below is very old it would all this work today on v9.


    In terms of the Jaccard Index of Similarity in 8 years you are the first to ask for that one 😊 It will get added to the product back log but to be honest it would be low priority for us.
