it would be great if Latest Comment was offered as a column in TracQuery. or as an option under "Show Under Each Result", the way Description is offered.

this would be a quick way to see updates on tickets rather than having to click each one to open it up and read. the entire Comments field is usually way too long. Description is not continually updated with the latest status. we tried adding our own custom field for status notes but it was cumbersome to have to keep updating that in addition to the comments field.

in addition to giving people a quick view of what's going on in tickets, with a little more care by commenters, it could also be used in status reports for clients or management.

Good idea.

See also the more general #5219 (not necessarily closing this one as duplicate, as we could eventually implement only this feature).

There are no crickets here. Take a look at the timeline. If this particular feature is important to you we would welcome a patch. If you need more help to understand how the project is structured, see ThisTicketWasOpenedTenYearsAgo. Yes, it would be a great feature, but none of us have an infinite amount of time to volunteer on the project, and so we haven't gotten to it yet. We welcome your help!
