When you're looking at a forum, you may notice you can sort by "Hot Ideas," which is the default for your forums.
So what makes an idea "Hot"? A hot idea is one that has lots of activity in a short period of time - both votes and comments.
Can I change the default sort option for my forum? Yes, click the icon in the bottom left corner-> General -> Feedback Forums -> Scroll down, and you'll see the option to update "Hot" to either "Top" or "New" for your forum.
