Several comment fields



is there a possiblitity to include an extra comment field into a Feature?


Background: I'd like to separate the "working comments" and the "management comments". For a special reporting extract I'd like to include only the last "managment comment" e.g. into Excel.


Having only one comment field I do not have a clue have to find and select a specific comment within extraction. Using e.g. key words does not seem to be friedly to the user...


Thanks in advanced.

No, there's no way to do this out of the box. An issue only has one type of comments.

You could consider using Comment Security levels to accomplish this, but that's the only thing I can think of off the top of my head.

You could also use a text field to capture additional comments, but it would not be a comment, just a block of editable text - you'd need to trust your users to add to it rather than edit.
