How to display form comments on the main form page

asked on March 7

I have been tasked with creating a form for the first time. I have been self-taught and have been reading and learning here. I have one question I couldn't really find. How to display form comments on the main form page. I'm talking about the comments from the users who have been commenting on the form as it's been circulating. Instead of only being on the action panel. I have what I'm talking about attached in a photo.

I create a multiline field and name it Comments.  On my forms I use this CSS to hide the default comment box.  

.approval-wrap .comment-section { display: none; }

If you just want to let the next task user see comments then in the email section of an email or user task you can insert in the body area this code,


Issues: {/dataset/_comment}
