How do I merge records?

How do I merge records so I do not have duplicates? Sometimes they are logins from 2 different URLS, sometimes they are an app and then the website? Please help?

    Hi @alessing

    Although you can't merge items in 1Password, it sounds like you'd be able to copy and paste the website address from one item into the other and delete the old one. If you need to add a second website field, you can do so by clicking "+ add another website" while in Edit mode. Let me know if you need any further help. :)

    +1 on feature request for this. Current approach for de-dupe:
    1. Click Watchtower
    2. Click first dupe
    3. View all duplicate items
    4. Copy / Paste each field of non website parts between from secondary item(s) to primary items
    5. Copy the website field
    6. Paste the website field, but click on the secondary item before it disappears from the watchtower duplicates list
    7. Click archive or delete on the secondary item

    It would be nice to collapse this to:
    1. Select items in watchtower list
    2. Click these are the same site

    Why so many dupes in the first place? There's no good UX for when a site with a different url is the same site as some existin site, which implies a new url rather than a new login.

    Hi @joshka,

    Thank you for your feedback and feature request. We understand that duplicate items can be difficult to deal with and I've included a +1 for you in our current feature request. We're tracking this for the product team while they discuss a better way to handle the de-dupe process.
