Managing issue prioritization - Feature Requests

We’re a team of 6 gitlab users. Previously we would tag an issue as a feature request, +1, and add a link to the support ticket in the issue.

This was great as it would allow us at a glance to see the more sought after features and get to work. With the latest release (8.5) it doesn’t appear that we’re able to +1 issues anymore and each user is only allowed one vote.

How are others handling this problem?
