Is there any way to sort comments to show the most recent comments on top?

Email and most other applications sort data to show the most recent items at the top, so that is how our brains are wired to look for things. It is confusing that comments are listed in chronological order, so that the oldest comments always show on top. You have to scroll down to get to the most recent comments.

Hi @Felicity Pastrone  - This question has been raised by folks on community, in the past as well. There does not seem to be a way to do this in confluence cloud. There are scripting options as suggested here, if you were to be exercising this on server.

Hope this helps!


Hi @[deleted] 

thanks for your reply! 

Our instance is confluence cloud so I guess we're out of luck for now. 

Hopefully Atlassian will implement this in the future!
