Add Task Comments to Reports

When creating a task report it is possible to include linked notes, which could be my workaround. Hower, it would be nice if task comments could be added to a report.

  • I too would like to see these on reports.  We have our guys record their time in the comments section.  I am having to open each task to record hours for billing and it is very time consuming.

  • My solution has been to have users put comments in the description field, which is available in task reports. It's working nicely so far.

  • Unfortunately, this does not work for reoccurring tasks.

  • I would see value in having reports show the comments as well.  Even if only the first [n] comments could be viewed for the sake of keeping the report from getting too long...  I use comments to record details of a phone call, while actually on the phone (efficiency!)

    Using a linked note or opening a task to modify the description is a more cumbersome workaround.

  • Hi Scott,

    The notes will not show on the reports; but you can see the "details" which is the Task Description on a report.

  • This is so important to us.  Comments is where we track results of the task. Description is just the instructions for the user.  Please add comments as a field option in the task reports.

  • completely agree with Heather Stefan comment. 

    I can't figure why having a field in a data base it's not possible to list it in a report. Work around is not an option since it won't do for data already there

  • Agreed.  Please, please add the task comments as a field in the reports for export.  Task description is just that, but the comments is where we log every detail related to that task.

  • I would also like to see task comments in reports. This is a desperate need for somebody handling software development Quality Assurance on hundreds of projects at a time.

  • This is essential. Some of our most important information is in comments.

  • This is so important to us and a simple paper printout would help us immensely. All our important information is included in the comments area NOT the description, please add asap

  • Wow - so much support from the community to get this function added, and seems to be a very important ability for a lot of Insightly user businesses. I also need to report on comments through task. To suggest we can just use the description field is a bit of a cop out I reckon. And this request seems to have been an issue for a very long time. Please Mr and Mrs Insightly, is this something you'll ever do??

  • Hello Insightly?! anywhere on this? it's like the discussion of linking leads to opportunities/projects and other leads, and not the singular function suggested. A couple deal breakers forming in this software but a task report w/o comments that has progression report is kinda useless.. where is the comment that needs resolution in a due-date task, that is stuck at 75%?

  • Yes, this is a much needed function. Comments with timestamps should be available fields across all modules (Projects, Opportunities, Leads, etc.) , not just Tasks.

  • I agree, this feature is very much needed. Why was it omitted to begin with?
