Adding Comments to a filter view for XML Summary

Currently using description field for updates related to a specific Jira task. I have to manually add date stamp and type the latest update in. At the end of the meeting I export the fields and use this a meeting minute summary.  I would prefer to do this but instead use the comments.  However I can not add this view under the filter view.  Any Ideas?

Hi @Camden LeBlanc 

Welcome to the Atlassian community,

If you comment on issue you can use updated field as the last updated date/time however you can't get the latest comment (out-of-the-box) in your issue navigator without the manual task that you do in the meetings. And updating the description field all the time is not a good practice. That should be in comments section.

You need to use an app for this one.

I'm one of the folks behind Snapbytes and Enhancer Plugin for Jira which I could recommend to give a try.  It has Comment custom field in which you can define First/Last comment custom field so that it can be automatically populated upon comments, and you can search against them.

I hope I was helpful.
