Append List Column Changes to Existing Text

A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

SharePoint iconWhen 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’.

In the demo below Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, explains the feature Append Changes to Existing Text.
