I would like to have the ability of avoiding duplicate items by any field, like name in a recruitment board. If I’m getting a candidate, that I already have in my list, I wish I had the option not to review it again and not to pay twice to two different headhunters, just because I missed that this candidate is already in the pool.
I wonder why monday don’t have this functionality in a first place. “Distinct” on a field sound like a basic requirement.
This topic was started a while ago, but being brought up in various ways in the community. I agree, can you please make it possible to set the first “item” column to “Distinct” or “Unique” to prevent item duplication - and/or even in connection with a second or third column in case of names/candidates like OP has queried.
I’m not looking to install another, separate app to achieve something virtually every database has as a basic setting. Even Excel is able to achieve this with Data validation.
