    Hi Michael! There's no way to view comments on the Table View, but I'm moving this post to our Product Feedback section so anyone else who might have the same request can +1 it.ย 

    I would love to hear details around why you would like comments on that view.ย Does your team work primarily out of the Table View?

    Hi Stephanie!ย  Our boss likes to review projects at a high level and not get stuck in the details of individual tasks making up a project.ย  I can add comments to projects now, but they don't "bubble up" to the Table view (or anywhere for that matter) so all the latest comments can be shown on a project by project basis.ย  We also need the history of Project status updates to be kept, so we can see the progress over time.ย  We can easily create a custom column in Table View called, "Latest Update" but we would overwrite it every week with no history kept.

    Hi Michael, that helps a lot thank you for explaining! You read my mind, I was going to suggest Custom Fields, but they don't work if you need to track history over time. Would you just need to see that/when a change was made or do you also need to see the previous values from the Custom Field?

    I think we'd like to see the previous values, which is why I was thinking of entering updates in the Project comments field, and the latest comment showing up in the custom field in the table view.ย  Do you think this is do-able?

    Thank you that definitely makes sense now!ย I just wanted to make sure that I fully understood how you envisioned it working so that we could pass the request correctly to the product team. I've heard a request similar to this before, but related to the description field. Thank you for explaining :)

    Hi, this is something that I was trying to solve as well, if a project is closed or put on hold, what is the reason, which should be the last comment, and it would be great to see at a glance all such projects.ย  Really hope this could get some traction, a lot of other PM tools allow you to update projects with comments/convos that get distributed out to the teams.ย  In Wrike currently, you have to manually add a comment when updating, and it doesn't show in the activity stream as necessarily linked to each other, ie when the status is changed, you can't be sure the comment is about that change.

    @Donnie The Community team adds status to a post when it reaches 60 upvotes. I still pass all the feedback for consideration though, but no updates for this particular thread at the moment. It would be great if more Community members upvoted this suggestion, this helps the team assess its popularity ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Al Thank you for adding your thoughts to this thread ๐Ÿ™Œ

    It would definitely be helpful to see comments in their own view so we don't have to click on each task in order to read the comments. is there a way to filter so it shows the comments of each task without having to open each task? or at least a filter to only show those with comments?

    Hey Nichole Cook, welcome to the Community!
    ย 
    There is currently no way to see comments without opening the task, or filtering based on whether there are comments or not available for the task. A possible workaround for this would be to add a checkbox custom field to your projects and check it when there are comments in the task. You'll be able to filter based on whether or not this box is checked or not, showing only the tasks that have comments in them.
    ย 
    Thank you for the feedback. If you have any other questions, be sure to let me know.
