SharePoint: comments with history

In SharePoint OOTB it is possible, for multi-line text fields (like typically comments and notes) to enable versioning of changes of the field only (without the need to go to the version history of the item).

For this, it is necessary, first of all, to enable versioning in the list itself (from List Settings, Versioning Settings, Item Version History, Yes).

Then, in the multi-line text field, in the Additional Column Settings, set Append Changes to Existing Text to Yes.
