By default when you log work, the Log Work tabpanel contain the Work Description, but it's not a comment field, it is mean to be discribe the Work.

If you want to add the Comment field into this panel, you need to edit the system plugin in the .vm file level. Which you need to find
Installation_dir\atlassian-jira\WEB-INF\classes\templates\plugins\jira\issuetabpanels\worklog.vm

Is there a way to do this without editing the Velocity template?

We have added this capability to WorklogPRO's log work dialog.

Why would you want to do that? I mean you would mess up your comment section. That's why you have an extra tab for worklogs I guess..

Because when my staff enter worklog, they also enter some comment on the task. I will review the workflow.
