When converting a lead in Salesforce classic, after clicking 'Convert' I am given the chance to attach it to an existing contact (from a drop down) from possible duplicates.

This step is missing after clicking convert in lightning and as such a new contact is created every time a lead is being converted in lightning.

I thought this may be to do with lead matching rules, however the rules in lightning are a mirror of those in classic.

I need to have the option to convert a lead and attach it to an existing contact in Lightning, as I do in Classic


There a page idea about this issue here Convert Lead process in New Lightning UI (Automatic create Account) There's a partial delivery planned for spring 2017... soon. You can upvote not to miss any update.
