Step 2 Apply a scenario to Duplicate Check Live feature

2.1 Navigate to DC Setup page, then click on the Lead object.
2.2 Navigate to the 'Lead Object' scenario tab and make sure that you have applied a scenario to the DC Live. Check the example image below.
That's it! If you want to use DC Live in 'cross object' mode and make it find duplicates in different objects, make sure you activate cross object and apply a scenario to the DC Live feature in every Object you wish to use in the DC Live feature.
Note: Make sure that you have applied a scenario to the DC Live feature so it can work properly.
