Ideas

How do I link ideas?

The link ideas feature allows you to create a relationship between any given number of ideas.

There are two relationship types available:

  • Duplicate: This option will merge ideas together, selecting a main one as the master idea and archiving the rest. You have the option to copy over data to the main idea if desired (Available fields to be copied over are Feedback, Designs, Documents, and User Stories.)
  • Related:This option will link the ideas together, allowing you to navigate between them as needed.

Linking ideas from the ideas list

To link ideas from the ideas list, simply select the ideas you wish to link together. Once you do, click on the “Link ideas” button on the list menu.

When the slideout opens, select the relationship type. 

If the relationship type is selected as Duplicate, the ideas shown on the linked ideas list will be marked as archived, but still available for you to see.

Once the process is completed, you will see a reference of all linked items under the "Linked ideas" tab within the idea canvas.

The relationship type will be highlighted within the list.
