@Paul Boyd Welcome to the Atlassian community

Here is an old article that explains how to do this.

Hi @Paul Boyd ,

I don't think you can show the last comment as a column by default.

Your best workaround would be to create a custom field 'Last Comment' and fill it with an automation rule, as explained here

There are also some apps in the marketplace that provide this functionality.

Best regards,

Hi @Paul Boyd

welcome to the community! If you're open to solutions from the Atlassian Marketplace, this would be easy to do using the app that my team and I are working on, JXL for Jira.

JXL is a full-fledged spreadsheet/table view for your issues that allows viewing, inline-editing, sorting, and filtering by all your issue fields, much like you’d do in e.g. Excel or Google Sheets. It also comes with a number of so-called "smart columns" that aren’t natively available, including the last comment (along with many other comment-related data).

This is how it looks in action:


You can also use the last comment across JXL's advanced features - such as support for (configurable) issue hierarchies, issue grouping, sum-ups, or conditional formatting - and "inline-add" new comments either to individual issues or in bulk, via copy/paste. 

This all "just works", so there's no scripting or automation whatsoever required.

Any questions just let me know,
