Is there a way Todoist staff could consolidate votes on the same topic?


I've often noticed that some suggestions being voted on are actually repeated further back in the voting thread, and that the vote count isn't really accurate because the votes are split between more than one box. Has there been any discussion around consolidating older vote-boxes with similar but more recent ones? For example, page 1 currently has a request for adding notes to the mobile app (41 votes). Page 3 has virtually the same request with 14 votes. That means there are at least 55 votes for that suggestion (and maybe more), yet the current ranking doesn't reflect the true popularity of the request because of vote splitting. I'm wondering if Todoist staff looks at the bigger picture when prioritizing and planning what to implement next.

Hello Cliff,

we are indeed looking at the bigger picture and the amount of votes is not the only factor that decides whether a feature will be implemented or not (or when).

Everything that happens in the Votebox is monitored by the developers, we look at any suggestion, search for related suggestions so nothing really stays unnoticed.

Best regards,

I'd add my vote to this - even if downstream in the process it's aggregated. Thanks.
