Managing "Voting" Roadmap Features

When you have a “Voting” feature in your forum and you deliver the feature:

  • How do you handle the topic, do you archive, close, move to a new category?
  • How do you manage follow-up requests?
  • How do you preserve the votes and conversation?

Example, we will soon release this: Simultaneous Streaming (Multi-camera viewing) - Roadmap - Wyze Community and it’s currently listed along with other requests that we haven’t worked on yet.
