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 if not they may find what is perceived as the most current and be misinformed or out of date.
+1 on this. Newest first seems to be the standard. We integrate with Azure DevOps and it sorts with newest first. Also, email threads work this way. So, it's a little confusing to have to scroll to the bottom to see the newest comment in Aha.
PS. NOTE HOW THIS board lists the most recent comments first (for good reasons), but Aha! does the reverse.
"An old pile is a junk pile," so it's hard to see what's most important right now.
Currently, I'm forced to see the old comments first and scroll down to the more pertinent ones.
I am new to the "Ideas world" -- inconsistencies like this are a real barrier. Portals order comments with newest on top, so it is mind boggling to find out that once they transfer to the workspace/project they are listed oldest to newest. A coworker suggested perhaps the comments could be numbered, which would be helpful if this design cannot be changed, and also if multiple comments are received in one day since there is no timestamp shown for a comment.
My client would like this and also the ability to "pin" a comment to the top, which is captured in https://big.ideas.aha.io/ideas/A-I-9049.
I would also like this sort and hide older comments option for the Workplace notes. I keep meeting notes here and it's a really pain to scroll down to the bottom to see the latest comments...
Please consider this idea soon, as we have lots of comments on some items and seeing the latest first would really help, people are missing them as not everyone checks the dates, they assume recent comments will be at the top, just like here!
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?
Agree, please add!
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?
