Dedupe Record Collection

Summary

Returns a set of de-duped records based on the field you specify.

For example, you could de-dupe a set of Accounts based on OwnerId, then loop over each of the Accounts to grab its Owner to email on a nightly schedule. I think where this would come in handy is if you needed to grab other details about the record you’re de-duping on. Let’s say in your email to the Record Owner you wanted to give a few details about the record – that’s where you’d want this action.
