How can we improve OpenCATS?

Mandidate Email address on Candidate creation to avoid resume duplications.

This is a major issue in OpenCats, as multiple candidate records can be created for the same candidate because there is no identifier for the candidates. Using the email address can help eliminate duplications and gather several candidate resumes on the same Candidate record.

        Best would be to make this unique-ness based on "admin-user-definable" set of columns. e.g. (mail id + coulmn x + column Y) as there are people with multiple email-ids ;-)

        If only we have an open source " bridge " or component to fully integrate opencats to Joomla, we will not have problems with duplicate emails.

        funnily enough I was asked to check the criteria for duplicate candidate records just yesterday - Currently it does something strange with zipcode, firstname and last name but to substitute it for email checking should be very simple..

        We've done this already. We've been there.. Thats why i think opencats would greatly improve given this major problem fixed.
