I cannot add "Comments" field to the screen

Hi, 

I see the following error when I tried to edit Field Configuration

"This field can not be placed on screens by users.  "

 

All user have permissions to add comments. What's wrong with this feature?

This widget could not be displayed.

Comments is not really a field, it's a collection of entries in a database handled differently to most fields.

You don't need to add it to screens, the system handles it automatically, giving a comment box whenever a user needs it.
