Adding an Appending Multiline Text Field to a List Board View

Copper Contributor

I have a board view with all our tasks running. I would like the most recent comment to show on the card so we can see it when we are reviewing the cards without opening them up.

When I add it to the card it does this

It puts in the HTML for a link that says "view entries".

 

Is there a way to display the most recent item to an appended multiline text field to a card in a Board view or in any list view?

 

I know I can build a Power App, but I don't really want to for this.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to show the most recent comment added to an appended multiline text field in board view using SharePoint out of the box capabilities or JSON formatting as multiple lines of text column with "append changes" is a special column type in SharePoint.

 

You can add a new idea/feedback on SharePoint feedback portal to request support for such columns in board view or JSON formatting at: SharePoint Feedback Portal

Ok thanks, MS doesn't take any of those to action so it is always a waste of time.
