Ability to sort Comments by date and/or list most current first

I use the Comments field as a  place to store Weekly Project status comments / and actions..  When team members visit the AHA project it would be beneficial to have the most recent comments listed first versus scrolling down the list of comments to find the most current.  if not they may find what is perceived as the most current and be misinformed or out of date.

    So ironic that this web site has comments ordered by most recent first but in the tool itself.

    Any update on when this could/may be moved out of "Future consideration"? What would it take to get moving on this idea?

    Would be very helpful when running team meetings.

    +1. We also use comments to post weekly updates

    Yes, I need that too. What can be done to get it going? As I see this "idea" origins from 2015?

    Would improve usability.

    Would love to see this put into place. We have so many comments and when I am driving our PMO meeting live in Aha, it is distracting to the group to watch me scroll thru pages of old comments to be able to see the most recent info.

    This would be great.

    Combine this with threading of the comments and we have the start of a solid commenting platform <shameless plug> https://big.ideas.aha.io/ideas/APP-I-4750 </shameless plug>

    Agree totally. It almost becomes unusable when you have lots of commenst

    This is something that would substantially help our workflow. Can we get an update?

    Seriously need this, I have a few Notebooks that have extensive comments, and the newest one is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay at the bottom. 
    As a minimum, can we at least have the most recent comment at the top?

    Looking for a status update on this. As a minimum, can we have Comments sorted by most recent at the top, oldest on the bottom? (Scrolling is a pain....) :)

    Yes!  This is exactly how I'm using Comments.  Would love to see this.

Change default sort-order for comments

Merged
We make extensive use of comments in features and releases. We'd like the ability to change the default sort (or sort at all) order for the comments so that newest is on top and goes newest to oldest.

Comments display in the Release & Feature detail pages, as well as in Reports, as oldest on top. Is there any way I can switch this order so that newest displays on top?

When using AHA as a meeting agenda, facilitation is smoother when you are not required to scroll to the bottom of a long list (losing sight of the other Feature Detail fields) to find the most recent activity/comment on the issue.

Have the newest comment be on top of the comment section in an idea

Merged
When we click on an idea, we see the oldest idea. It would be a small UX improvement to have that list of comments have sort functionality to determine what a user wants to see. Maybe as an idea portal setting in their account? "Always show newest...

Comment threads should be in reverse chronological order

Merged
We are starting to have tickets in Aha that have a significant number of comments back and forth between developers and between developers and product managers. It would be better to have the most recent comments at the top of the list rather than...
