Within Teamwork Desk, you can manually merge tickets together when a customer sends in separate requests.

When viewing an individual ticket, select the Merge Ticket option at the top of the ticket thread.

A pop-up modal will open detailing other tickets received from the same customer's email address. 

Collision detection is built in to the merge modal. When attempting to merge tickets, you can see how many people are currently viewing, replying to, or adding a note to each ticket.

Tickets that are currently under review via the Training Wheels feature cannot be merged until they have been reviewed. These tickets will still be shown in the Merge Tickets modal, but will be grayed out.

Choose the relevant ticket(s) by selecting the checkboxes to the left of the ticket titles and then click Merge tickets.

The selected tickets will then be merged into one single ticket thread on the ticket you are currently viewing.

An update log will also be added in the Messages thread and Activity tab detailing the IDs of the ticket(s) merged into the current ticket.
