I am sure this has come up before. As you are aware, when you start OOTB approval workflow, it creates a task item in Tasks list. An approver can click the task and open the page where he/she can approve/reject/reassign....The Approver can also add comments in the "Type comments to include with your response:" textbox. These comments are included in the email which is sent after approval/rejection. The approver comments are not available in a columns in the Tasks list. The comments are available in the task history however, the history disapears after 60 days. I understand that there is away to modify a SharePoint approval workflow in Designer to to create a task list collum to store these comments. Does anyone have step by step directions to modify the workflow and list? I would appreciate it.

We can do this setting if you are creating workflow using designer:
Here are the steps:
--> Edit Worflow --> Start Approval process on Current Item -->Approval link --> Change Behavior of Single Task in Customization Section --> When a Task Completes Step --> Open Log from Approve or Reject condition, you will get comments --> here you can assign it to existing comments column of task list
