|Knowledge Article Number||000193781|
|Description||When a User merges records, they notice that the Topics from the losing records do not appear on the winning record. They seem to be dropped.|
|Resolution||This is currently working as designed. When merging records, the losing records Topics will not carry over.
An APEX Trigger can be created to perform this action. If interested, please consult your Developer or check the Developer Boards (developerforce.com).
