Sometimes, while submitting feedback, users can see a list of other submissions with similar words as they type the feedback title. But despite this, there are duplicate posts submitted in an organisation.

So, to overcome this, Hellonext has the option to merge feedback of the same context! Now, you can merge one idea into another or multiple views to one!

Let’s see,

How to merge posts

  • Log in to your Hellonext account
  • Admins can find the “Merge option” under each post.
  • Open the (child) post that you want to be merged with another similar (parent) post.

Note: The original post is known as “child post,” and the post you’re merging with the original post is “parent post.”

What happens when you merge the post

  • After merging two posts, you might be wondering about the comments and upvotes of each post. Don’t worry; we also combine votes and comments!
  • All comments and votes of the child post will be combined with the parent post.
  • Votes by the same user are counted as one vote, and the comments are listed together.

You can always unmerge a post if you decide later.
