Comment Fields Function does not seem to work in Sense.

I have been trying to add comments to some fields in the load script without success.  The script completes without error but the comments do not seem to show up anywhere in Sense.  Here's a sample:

LOAD
    CODENUM,
    CODEDESC,
    ProductGroup,
    "Bond Type"
FROM [lib://kCase/Product Groups.xlsx]
(ooxml, embedded labels, table is [Product List]);

Comment Fields "ProductGroup" with 'This is the product group comment';

Anyone know if this is working in Sense?  If so, where do the comments display?

Re: Comment Fields Function does not seem to work in Sense.

According to the online help it is possible to add comments to fields: http://help.qlik.com/sense/en-us/online/#../Subsystems/Hub/Content/Scripting/ScriptRegularStatements...

I have no idea where the comments can be retrieved or viewed in Qlik Sense. It's possible it's not implemented in the Qlik Sense user interface yet. Possibly you'd have to create a custom extension that uses one of the api's.
