Merging Feedback

Managing feedback can be a daunting task, particularly when you're dealing with duplicate Bug Reports or Feature Requests and trying to prioritize which feedback to address first. With Userback, you can select and merge multiple feedback items together, eliminating duplicates and simplifying the management of related feedback.


Merging feedback items combines the status, assignee, type, and vote count of two or more selected feedback items, resulting in a more accurate representation of an idea or issue's overall popularity. Child feedback is gracefully hidden from view with a filter, but you can easily access and manage all related feedback from the Primary feedback item, providing complete visibility in a simplified view.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I merge feedback items with different types, assignees, statuses, or priorities?

Yes, you can. The merged item will take on the status and priority of the primary item. This helps to simplify the management of related feedback and provides a more accurate representation of the overall popularity of an idea or issue.


Can I merge two primary feedback items that have their own linked child feedback?

Yes, merging two primary feedback items at once will allow you to confirm which should now be the primary item. The old primary and child issues will all be linked under the new primary, providing complete visibility over related feedback in a simplified view.


Are comments merged or shared between merged feedback?

No, comments will remain in their respective feedback items and will need to be managed separately from the primary feedback item. However, the status, assignee, and type are synced, allowing you to easily manage and prioritize feedback.
