i wanted to just merge records that are in a Group. But the documentation seems to indicate that the records that will be flagged as duplicates will be from where at least 1 of the record is within the Group. How can i configure to flag pairs where both records are from the designated Group? Thanks.

    don't think this is currently possible but agree it is a reasonable process to want to take

A way to achieve this would be to create an ACL that limits records to that group and then assign that ACL to a user and they will only see those records to dedupe.


If @Andy Burns answer does not work for any reason I would try putting all duplicate candidates in a new (smart) group and then search contacts that has to be in both groups: the original and the new – ordered by name or display name.
