Dedupe lists such as mailing lists, contacts lists or other text files
QuickList is designed to automate the boring process of eliminating duplicates from one or more lists. Not only that it can automatically eliminate the duplicates (dedupe) from a single source, but it can also compare multiple sources and eliminate the duplicates it finds across them, saving you from wasting time by manually comparing and editing lists using text editors or Microsoft Excel.
Probably the most popular feature of QuickList is the one that lets you dedupe mailing lists. Let's say you maintain two mailing lists: one with the addresses to which you are planning to send a newsletter email and one with the addresses which bounced last time when you sent the newsletter email. How are you going to eliminated the bounced addresses from your mailing lists, without manually removing the addresses one by one?
Fortunately, QuickList can do it for you. You can import both mailing lists as source panels and then you can dedupe one mailing list from another. The resulted mailing list will be displayed as the output panel, allowing you to export it to a text or CSV file.
To dedupe mailing lists, you need to firstly import two source lists into the source panels. Then, you need to click on the Dedupe icon from the top toolbar. From its associated dropdown list, you can select to dedupe source A against source B (A - B) or viceversa (B - A).
Furthermore, you can perform other operations with your mailing lists, such as merge, difference or intersect operations, making these tasks as easy as they can get.
To learn more about the dedupe function of QuickList, please refer to the help manual - Dedupe Lists section - that is delivered with the QuickList installation.
Using QuickList, you can merge multiple lists and automatically eliminate duplicates
One of the major goals of our products is to help you to quickly merge multiple sources into a single output file, no matter how many columns or data types you have. Moreover, QuickList will automatically eliminate duplicate entries, during the merge process. If you wish to, you can choose to disable the feature for eliminating the duplicates.
Let's say you use to send a newsletter to your customers and you include their names, addresses and other contact details in each personalized newsletter. After a period, you gather a second source of contacts and you want to mix these two contact lists into a single list, allowing you to produce a single newsletter for all your contacts.
You can import both of these two lists into the source panels of QuickList, then you can choose to merge them into a single output list. If the column names don't match, using QuickList you can rename the column headers and so to make sure that each column is merged with the right column from the other source list.
To merge lists, you need to firstly import two source lists into the source panels. Then, you need to click on the Merge icon from the top toolbar.
Furthermore, you can perform other operations with your mailing lists, such as difference or intersect operations, making these tasks as easy as they can get.
Performing difference and intersect operations
QuickList can save you from the boring task of comparing two or more lists and performing logical operations, such as difference or intersect operations.
When performing a difference operation, though an easy to use interface you can choose which source to be differenced from the other (A - B or B - A). The goal of the Dedupe operation is to automatically compare two source lists, to identify unique lines of source A or of source B and to save them into a single, output list.
For example, if one list contains the items A and B, while the second list contains the items B and C, then deduping source A against source B will result into a list containing only the A item. Deduping source B against source A will result into a list containing only the C item. A progress bar will be displayed during the intersection process. Once the job is done, you will see the results displayed in the Output panel. You can then further tweak the list or you can save it to your disk, as a CSV file.
The goal of the Intersect operation is to automatically compare two source lists, to identify similar lines and to save them into a single, output list. To start an Intersect operation, you need to firstly import two source lists into the source panels. Then, you need to click on the Intersect icon from the top toolbar.
