Data Mesh Adding Data to column without overwrite?

Hi, I have a base information sheet with a comment section. In another new information sheet that people will add new rows with a comment column. When Data Mesh runs I want the new comment to be added to the current comment already in the base information and not overwrite it. Is that possible? To add information to the current information already in the cell?

Thank you

    Hi @Kimbh

    No; currently DataMesh will replace the cell contents with the new cell contents instead of adding the new text to the cell.

    If you want to just see the first, original comment and the newest comment, what I would do is have two columns: one with the original and one that DataMesh updates when there are new adjustments. Would that work for you?
