Hello!

I am trying to give the ability to add multiple comments in a single item on a SharePoint list.

Currently, it only allows for one comment to display. If I add another comment, it will delete the previous entry.

I am sure this is a rather simple request but I just need guidance on where to go to make this possible.

I'll attach some screenshots to provide an example:

I have a screenshot of another SharePoint list where multiple comments have been made possible. This is ultimately what I am trying to achieve:

Hi @imelendez - the trick is to add a Site Column - there's one called 'Append-Only' that allows users to add but not edit or delete previous comments
