Is it possible to display the Updates/Comments in a column like "Text"?

Straightforward question.
I would like to have the updates/comments be visible inside the table like a text- or longtext-column without the additional click on the bubble.

Hi @dk_NFroehlich - the app Update Magic has the ability to copy updates to a text column.

Thanks!
Mark

Thank you for your reply. This looks to be the best solution within monday’s current capabilities. We will try whether we can work with that. As far as I can see now it is a bit unstructured because it simply posts the update without any date or user information which makes it a bit unclear.

Hi @dk_NFroehlich - as for the date the update was made you could pair it with this from Update Magic:


Then show the “Last Updated” column to your board and it will show you the date of the update and who made it.

Thanks!

Thank you but that is a bit too complex a solution for the simple idea of displaying the comments differently

@dk_NFroehlich,

Having that is a good idea. I’ll look at adding that.

How would you want that to look?

@mark.anley, thanks for the mention!

To be really feasable for what I am thinking of it would be nice to look something like

[User] at [time and date]: [comment]

most preferably inside a box or somehow visually framed to be distinguishable from the next or previous comment.

@dk_NFroehlich

I would not be able to put it in a box. But, I have an idea. I’ll try to get this out soon.

The change to Update Magic #1 is now available.
