Merging cases

Is it possible to merge two cases into one? Sometimes a client will send a second email supplying further information regarding the same issue (even before you've opened the original sometimes) and a new case is automatically created. Is there a way to merge the two cases?

There is currently no merge feature. You can type "see case 1234" or "bug 1234" and FB will automatically turn that into a link to case number 1234. That's how I handle the situation you're talking about. As long as they're linked the need to conjoin the information presented is met. We'll consider a true merge feature for a future release.

You can also resolve a case as duplicate and enter the other case number to link the two cases, as appropriate.
