I have added an Issue tracking list to my team site, which provides a build-in field for displaying the history of the list comments (i rename the built-in column to be named Latest Updates instead of comments)as follow:-

enter image description here

But when I chose to display this column inside my list view as follow:-

enter image description here

The results is that I will get a link named “View entities”, instead of showing the history records, as follow:-

enter image description here

Can anyone advice on this please, on how i can display the history records instead of the "View Entities" link?

You can edit the xsl of the view and make following change

<xsl:value-of disable-output-escaping="yes" select="@LatestUpdates" />

to this and it worked

<SharePoint:AppendOnlyHistory runat="server" ItemId="{@ID}" FieldName="LatestUpdates" ControlMode="Display"/>
  • can you please advice how i can edit this xsl, i try editing the "AllItems.aspx" page using SP2013, but i can not find such a code "<xsl:value-of disable-output-escaping="yes"
