You no longer need to search to find a customer for a walkup order. If you provide their phone number, that order will be attached to their customer profile (if one exists),or we will create a new customer profile.
· We used the email OR the phone number as the unique ID to try to match up an order to a customer profile
· We did not validate on the front-end (Make sure they are 10-digits)
· This resulted in bad data in the form of duplicate profiles and invalid phone numbers.
· Phone number is the only unique ID. We need this in order to match an order to a customer profile or in order to create a new customer profile.
· We will NOT create a customer profile if no phone is provided in the order.
· Phone numbers are now being validated o the front-end to make sure they are 10-digit numbers
· FasterCRM performance due to less bad data and duplicate profiles
· Follows data privacy guidelines by allowing for fully anonymous guests.
