Can we have a button for Unmatched Merges?

+5 votes
I've been working on a lot of unmatched merges thanks to the magic word that Ales gave us.  So many of them really are a match.  The current process is to first remove the merge and repropose it again (several steps).  Could there be a choice in the list that allows you send them directly back into a merge status?  We could have compare, remove, reject, reactivate. . .

I'm not as dedicated as Cindy to unmerged matches, but when I do come across them, I admit to being irritated at the extra steps needed to re-propose the merge. In short, I support Cindy's request for a short cut button.

Yeah, this probably could be streamlined. I checked and it takes 6 steps to propose a merge if the two profiles are in a unmerged match.

Thank you Jamie for considering this for improvements!
Thank you Jamie for the new button!  It works!

Just checking that after I use it, the merge shows up as a proposed merge and the unmerged match still is there.  Will that unmerged match go away at some point?

If I go to delete the remaining unmerged match then they both go away so I don't want to do that.  I'm going to proceed with using the button and leaving the unmerged match on there in the expectation that it will get resolved.
