I was creating a sharepoint page where I wanted to input minutes of one-one with my directs - my requirement was such that if I enter the minutes of meeting - the person who's alias/email address that I input should be able to see it. I've tried [me] filter - but it only worked if the my direct entered the comments Current user filter didn't work apparently for some odd reason without an error
That is a known behavior.
If you will add
[Me] filter on the "login" column then you will able to see only the list items where you have been added to "login" column.
If you want to show the comments you have entered then maybe you need to create another view where you will add
[Me] filter on "Created By" column.
And if you don't want to create a new view and show all the items in same view then you can add OR condition in list view filter where you can define
[Me] filter on both "login" and "Created By" column.
