Low priority: merged individuals question

What Wildbook are you working in? ACW

I just merged 2 individuals into a single individual and noticed a new ‘name’ field called “merged”, that is blank:

Can someone explain to me what that field is intended for?

thanks!

Merged is related to the projects framework. If you discover you have two individuals that need to be merged, and each individual has a project ID, you need to select the one that becomes the main ID. But we wanted users to be able to keep a record of the previous assignment as well.

This is a minor bug because it shouldn’t be showing up blank. We’ll get it cleaned up under WB-1456, but it seems pretty minor.
