Append List Column Changes to Existing Text
A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström
you enable the feature ‘Append Changes to Existing Text’
for a field in a SharePoint list item, changes to that field
are shown as a thread. The earlier text cannot be changed,
but new text is shown above the earlier text. This feature
is especially useful for discussions and issue tracking.
Before you enable ‘Append Changes to Existing Text’ for
a field, you have to enable Versioning settings for the
list. Do that under List settings > Versioning settings >
'Create a version each time you edit an item in this list’.
