I don't know what the official way is but some of the questions I ask about an on-hold project when deciding what review schedule to put into OF are:

How high is my personal priority on this project being completed?
How long has this project been on hold so far?
I leave things at the default of 1 week review until I get tired of seeing them and then I change it. So for example I have about 35 knitting projects on hold. I have them set to review every 3 months. The reason is when I finish a current knitting project and wish to make a new one active I will look at all the on-hold projects and pick one or 2 to start. I generally need 2 active knitting projects at a time, one that is complex and needs to be done at home and one that is brewery friendly that I can work on while drinking a pint or 2. I don't care to review them weekly as I only really need to see them when I finish a project but I don't want to have a longer review time because sometimes I decide to hibernate a project and start a new one so I want to be reminded of my future projects occasionally.
