[Question from the form] Deduplication through automation

I’m waiting for a deduplication feature or plugin to be added in Baserow. And I was thinking while this feature is missing can I use automation tools to check my data for duplications?

It may depend on your defined deduplication logic. (e.g. email vs email OR phone vs email AND phone, etc.)

Plus it will depend on what you are trying to do if a duplicate is detected. (e.g. stop OR update OR something else)

In general, the automation logic could look like this:

  1. Trigger: Jotform - New Submission
  2. Action: Baserow - Find Row
  3. Action: Filter
  4. Action: Baserow - Create Row

I assume the person who asked this question is referring to this feature that Airtable has: Dedupe Extension | Airtable Support. We received a few requests to add it.
