Update text as text column value

I know that I can have the most recent update show up as a “comment” in a ‘status’ column. This is nice; but the problem is that it doesn’t print. What would be more useful to me is an automation that would update a text column value for the item with the text of the update. That way, the update would show up when the table is printed. For instance: On most of my boards, I have a text column titled “latest update”, which is intended to show the text of the latest update. Right now, we have to copy and paste the text. An automation would be very convenient. (I work for a municipality. It is still necessary to provide compiled reports outside of Monday.com for various reasons.)
