Export update history

There should be a way to export update history along with their associated tasks or projects to either Excel or another accessible format for auditing or reporting purposes.

Hey, Spencer! I'd really like to learn more about how you envision this. Which updates do you want to track? I get the feeling that this would look something like an export of the comment or activity stream, but I'd love to learn what you think.

I suppose a better way of explaining what I'm looking for is I want a report that shows each Task in a Project or Folder, and each Comment and change event that is logged in the "Show More Updates" area under the Task Description in the UI. So if I have a Task called "Work on this thing" in a Project called "Big list of things" and that Task had several comments between the three individuals working on that Task, I'd expect an export like this to be available to Excel (shown below in a tabulated format since I can't put a table in here):

TimeStamp               |   Comment                                  |   UserName                  |   Task Name             |    Parent Task Name ||

9/13/2017 8:20 AM   |  We're going as fast as we can  |    Wonder Woman         |  Work on this thing   |  Big list of things        ||

9/14/2017 3:01 PM   | Just finished testing, GTG          |   Jim Parsons                |  Work on this thing   | Big list of things         ||
9/14/2017 3:04 PM   | OMG ManagerPerson is insane |   Jim Parsons                |  TotesWorkRelated  | Personal folder          ||
9/14/2017 3:20 PM   | Thanks!                                       |   Manager-Person         |  Work on this thing  |  Big list of things        ||

So yes, it'd look a lot like an export of the Activity stream, but in this case I wouldn't care much for the updates to the task description so it'd be nice if such an export had the ability to filter between comments on tasks and whatnot.

Spencer, thanks so much, the 3:04 PM record made me laugh 😄  I completely understand now. Thank you for taking the time to structure this and explain it so well!

This type of expanded history view would really help me as well.  Our start and end dates change ALL THE TIME and I would like to know when they do and what the dates used to be before the change.  To follow up on Spencer's example:

TimeStamp              | Change                                                        |   UserName              | Task Name             |    Parent Task Name ||
1/11/2018 8:03 AM   |  Start Date: from 1/5/2018 to 1/11/2018  |    Nat Eichler            |  Discovery tool         |  Personal                  ||
1/11/2018 8:03 AM   |  End Date: from 1/15/2018 to 1/20/2018 |    Nat Eichler            |  Discovery tool         |  Personal                  ||
1/11/2018 8:15 AM   |  Start Date: from 2/5/2018 to 2/11/2018  |    Tommy Boy           |  Discovery tool         |  Personal                  ||
1/11/2018 8:15 AM   |  Start Date: from 3/5/2018 to 3/11/2018  |    Tommy Boy           |  Discovery tool         |  Personal                  ||

I agree with Spencer. When pulling report updates for project meetings, it would be nice to export out the updates and comments of a task. The report is not showing a complete picture if the updates/comments are not included. Hopefully this will be a feature added at some point.

Now it's been almost two years has passed. Any updates on when and how we can export the history data along with the timestamps?
