Collect SharePoint list data multi-line text with append

I need to collect data from a SharePoint list that has a multi-line text column with append.   

 

ClearCollect(ApproverRequests, Filter(PremiumLicenseRequests, varUser = Approver))

 

The justification column in the collection is empty.   The justification column in the list is a multi-line text column with the append setting turned on.

What do I need to do to be able to bring this content into the app?

Yeah...not probably the answer you wanted, but that's where it is.

I have seen some workarounds for this, but they are messy!  The involve doing GraphAPI calls in your app to the list to try and get the information.  Not an easy solution!

 I am not afraid of hard solutions where they make sense.  In this case, it's not necessary.    It's nice when you are the customer, you can make these decisions and they are easy.

Yes, if it was a hard need and requirement, then the effort is worth it.  But for when there are alternatives...drop it like a rock!
