Displaying an 'apend comments' field in PowerApps?

I've just started using PowerApps for the first time today, so apologies if this ends up being a simple solution.

 

I created a PowerApp from a list I have in SharePoint Online. In this list, users have the ability to add comments to a comments field, this field also has 'apend comments' set to on which means when they submit a comment it leaves their name and a little time stamp next to it. The idea is that multiple people can leave their comments and it keeps a little log of them.

 

When I add this comments field to my PowerApp, none of the comments are showing up. It just shows the title 'Approver's Comments' with a blank white space underneath. Is there something I need to turn on?

 

Thanks

As far as I know - this is still under review to add to PowerApps and is not supported today.

There is an Idea in the idea list that you can look at and vote on.

If you read through the comments on the Idea you will see one of my preferences offered by @PhilD which is to create a second list in sharepoint with items that link to the main list (One-to-Many list).  This will at least get you past the problem, but you would be ditching the Append Changes text column concept all together - as it doesn't seem to be on the horizon to make happen.

 

Sorry that your first day of PowerApps would run you into an obscure feature that doesn't work.  Keep at it though, the rest is quite exciting.
