Hi @Jbid,

 

No,  currently it is not possible for PowerApps to get the version history of the Append-only comments.

When the Append-only comments is added, it will only display the most current string,  as this field is defined as string in PowerApps :

Please consider submit this as an idea, in the following PowerApps idea forum:

Hi,

 

We're actively looking at unlocking these types of scenarios to better support custom forms in SharePoint.  As we're still investigating we don't have a timeline yet.

 

Hope this helps!

 

Cheers,

Chris

Thank you for your tips.

But when I tried to implement this, in Flow, I can only get body from "Send an HTTP request to Sharepoint", which result in error, because "apply to each" can only be used for array.

How did you get Value?

It would be appreciated if you can advise more details.

Thanks in advance!!

 

no value but body from send an HTTP request to Sharepoint.JPG

 

 

I fixed the issue by parsing the JSON output


I used this guide: https://prairiedeveloper.com/2018/12/parsing-json-in-microsoft-flow/


And another helpful guide if you run into the same error I did: https://www.sharepointsiren.com/2018/10/flow-parse-json-null-error-fix/


See attached for what my final result looks like. It works perfectly and I had absolutely no issues except for the aformentioned that I fixed with the second guide. Other than this, I followed the previous guide
