Latest Comments feature not wanted


I have created a sheet for payment authorisation. An assistant inputs data and manually requests approval from the supervisor. Via an automated alert, the supervisor (who is not shared to the sheet) declines or approves. If declining, the supervisor is expected to use the comments feature to give instructions to the assistant. Even though I have not created a latest comments alert, a column assigned to record dollar value is updating with the latest comments. I already double checked the properties to ensure that this column is a "text/number" column and not "latest comments".

Is it that in the absence of a latest comments column a random column will be updated? How do I stop this?
