Comment column in sharepoint lists

Oct 18 2020 9:43 AM
 Hi
I wondered if someone would be able to help. We have started using sharepoint lists to track workflows. One element is a column for comments. This is currently set up as a multi-line text field with versioning on so we can view multiple comments on the one item. However, when we mark that job (row) as complete, we have a flow that copies the completed row to a new list "Completed", creates a new row in a different list ready for the next year and deletes the row from the original list. However, when we copy the item to the "completed" list, the comments in the multi-line text field are not copied over. 
 
The minimum we are looking to do is retain these comments in the item created in the "completed" list. Other thoughts would be to replace the simple multi-line text field with, for example, a link to a notepad to keep notes on - though a link to a new "note" would need to be created on the new item in the list for next year when the existing item is marked as completed.
 
I hope this makes some sense and if anyone can help it would be appreciated.
 
Thanks in advance
