Top Navigation

The top margin of the dashboard provides key navigational links that are always visible:

Activity Stream

(1) The icon at the far left will open and collapse the Activity Stream. The Activity Stream provides information on how Salesforce has processed information from Cloudingo. The Activity Stream allows for monitoring real time jobs to see if they are successfully processing or if there are a large number of errors being reported back. This icon will display a number in green or in red when the stream is collapsed. The number represents the most recent number of groups processed and their success (green) or failure (red). If your stream is collapsed, expand the stream to see a more complete view of the activity.

Activity Stream Pin

(2) The Activity Stream can be collapsed to make your work space larger, or it can be pinned open or closed with the thumb tack icon in the upper right of the Activity Stream box. Your pin selection will be remembered and applied every time you login. You can re-open the Activity Stream again at any time by clicking the Activity Stream icon at the top, left.

Platform Dropdown

Dedupe Dashboard Navigation

The main window of the Cloudingo Dedupe Dashboard lists the filters that analyze your Salesforce data for duplicates. 

Above the filters, at the right margin, are the key navigation menus that enable you to configure and work with Cloudingo.


  • Create New Filter: Use to build a new filter for finding duplicates on the dashboard.
  • Re-order Filters: Customize the order in which your filters are displayed via drag-and-drop (new filters are always added to last position on the dashboard until you customize the display).
  • Re-Calculate Totals: Re-runs all filters on the dashboard. Running a filter means the filter analyzes the data in Salesforce for any changes or new duplicates.


  • Manage Rules: Create and edit rules for automated merging of duplicate records.
  • Manage Owner Mapping: Manage mappings for re-assigning ownership during merge/convert.
  • Run Window & Throttle: Control the amount of resources allocated to Cloudingo, and when an automation job can run.
  • Start Automation: Start an automation job to automatically merge duplicate records. (Click here for more information on configuring automation rules before triggering an automation job).
  • Halt & Disable All Dedupe Automation: This option will prevent any scheduled automation jobs from running (for all filters and users). Any jobs currently running while this option is enabled may take a while to stop (records already submitted to Salesforce are already awaiting status response). This option will also prevent manual automation jobs from being started.
Data Maintenance jobs must be halted from the Data Maintenance dashboard Automation menu. The "Halt & Disable All Dedupe Automation" option only applies to dedupe filters. To half both dedupe and data maintenance jobs at the same time, you can do this within the Run Window & Throttle settings. Or toggle independently to each dashboard to halt each one.

Filter tile “gears” icon will change to a “pause” icon.  This pause means the previously set schedule has been disabled and merge automations have stopped.    

A warning message will appear within any previously scheduled filter indicating that automation has been halted.

  • Re-enable Dedupe Automation: If you have previously chosen to 'Halt & Disable All Dedupe Automation', you can choose this option to resume your automation job schedules (and allow new regular automation jobs to process).

Dashboard Display

Depending on your preference, Cloudingo has two ways to view your dashboard: grid and list view. Toggle between grid and list views of the filters on the Cloudingo dashboard.

Tile View

Sorting & Reordering Filters

Both views allow you to reorder your filters, using the drag-n-drop pop-up under Actions → Reorder Filters. If you have a large number of filters, the list view’s more robust sorting options may be your ideal option. 

The list view also offers the ability to sort & search your filters by Name, Operation, Object, Status, & Fields. 


Any changes you make in the list view are mirrored when switching back to the grid view (and vice versa).
