Merging ideas

The Hyperproof Ideas portal has moderators that review your ideas periodically. If multiple ideas are submitted that are similar, the moderator can merge all of them into a single idea.  Consider the following when ideas are merged.

Child ideas

  • Are merged into another more comprehensive parent idea

  • Contain a merge note with a link to the parent idea

  • Are locked for commenting, voting, subscribing, or flagging

  • Generate a notification to subscribed users when merged


Parent ideas

  • Contain links to one or more child ideas

  • Inherit votes from child ideas

  • Inherit subscribed users from child ideas

  • Do not inherit comments from child ideas

  • Allow commenting, voting, subscribing, and flagging
