If you have used Issue tracking list template in SharePoint you must have marked that the comments are added and marked with author name and datetime. It is handy to have these micro “discussion boards” on items. The comment-formed communication can help to fine-tune task definitions. By the way, have you seen Trello? So the question is how we can create this column in other lists? Here is a little tutorial how to create “append-only comments”, as they are called:
Go to your list and enable versioning
(In Swedish this Site Column is called: “Lägg endast till kommentarer”)
Add append-only comments in XML

I already select the append-only comment in a column list, but still when I give comments during approval,, it is not displayed. Is there any way to display the comment except append-only?? Thanks.
Valuable information. Fortunate me I discovered your web site by chance, and I am surprised why this coincidence didn’t happened in advance! I bookmarked it. cadeckeekfec

God almighty how is this still the only way to have comments in a SP list in 2019? Dear God kill me now.
