This feature is for you if:

  • You don't want to show a Canny board publicly on your website but want to keep track of which users want what

  • You get feedback via other channels (Email, Intercom, customer calls etc.) that you want to keep track of in Canny

  • You ever have to enter feedback manually on a user's behalf

In your admin view, the right-hand panel on each post allows you to manually add voters.

Type in who expressed interest in that post. Canny will suggest existing users if the name matches:

We highly recommend setting up our SDK to automatically populate this list.


"Will they get status update emails?"

Yes. When you add a voter, you have the option of adding an email address. Canny will send them an email update when you change the status of the post.
