Hello,

Can you advise me please, how to create a column in Microsoft Lists that will display the last comment?

 

Alternatively, I would like to have a 'next step' column. I would like to keep 'next steps' history, therefore the free text column isn't suitable here. I thoughtt that comments would be fit-for-purpose, but it would be great to have the next step displayed in the list, as a column.

 

Thanks in advance for your suggestions,

Janusz

@debskij comments are stored in the list schema and not within the list item itself and it's not currently possible to display only the last comment. If your 'next steps' are always one of a set of possible actions then you could have a choice column, but it would have no relationship to the comments.
