The built-in Excel export feature will not export the comments.

The add-on called Better Excel Plugin will export the comments to Excel for you. Simply use the "Current fields + comments" or "All fields + comments" export types.

(If you have more custom requirements, that is also doable, as comment are implemented as calculated fields in this add-on! See:

Hi Richard,

If you export to Word or "Full Content" you'll get the comments too.

Best regards,


thanks , but we want report by excel and issues by row , one issue one row and comments should added into one cell . Can ?
