Merging ideas should total up votes

After merging three ideas with several votes against each into one master idea, the votes on the master idea are now at 0. Instead, it should be a total of the votes from all the merged ideas, since it's lost it's "popular" status.

    We're in the midst of grooming our idea backlog. This feature has been shipped where you can merge ideas and the votes will be tallied together (so that you can ensure that you track the popularity of the idea).

    Please disregard! It was smart enough not to count duplicate voters! :) Super impressed.

    Hello, either there is a bug with this feature or it's not working as I expect. I just merged a 4-vote idea with a 13-vote idea and expected 17 votes total. But I only see 14 on the survivor.

    This is my exact want/need/idea and it says it's been "shipped" but does that means it's done?  I just tested it out in my portal, and it doesn't work.  Any help?

    I have multiple people that will send me emails about feature requests which I will forward to the ideas portal from my email. To capture the number of times a feature has been reflected I need the merge these features to increment the voting counts even though each feature was ( as far as Aha is concerned ) created by me.
