    Hi Holly! I love that you're using Request forms, what you describe is a great use case for them. We don't currently have functionality that lets you merge two (or more) existing tasks, but there is a request for that in our Product Feedback section. If you could add a +1 there, that helps us keep track of how many people are interested in that type of functionality (and share that information with our PMs). 

    You are able to convert a task into a subtask though! Our help center page has detailed instructions on how to do that, but please let me know if you have any questions about it!

    Just realised I didn't reply to this message, but we're going to utilise the subtasks to get what we need :)


    Thanks!

    From time to time our team inadvertently creates more than one project for the same project. It would be great to be able to combine them at some level.

    We too see a need for this. Making one the subtask of another is an ok workaround but this happens more than you think. Multiple people create their version of a similar task, especially if there is shared responsibility. It would be great for a utility to provide the option to identify the tasks in question. Pick which one should be the master. it could also give an option for which description should be kept, or allow for one description to be appended to the other. The biggest problem we have is keeping the comment streams of both. I think that could and should always be appended. Really cool if it would merge by date of the comment stream. but that might be asking for a lot.
