Im fetching a field with multiple lines of text using JSOM and it returns null. All other fields return the correct value but attempting to get this results in null.

Is there a special way of getting values from fields which have multiple lines of text

  • Is Append Changes for this field enabled?

Here's an example of using SPServices to get what you need:
