Case Comments and Email NOT Updating the Last Modified Date on a Case

We currently use SFDC to track Support cases and we're using a pretty stock Case tab. When editing the Case details, upon saving the record, the Last Modified date is updated as expected. However, the support engineers are very fond of using a related list - Case Comments and emails to continually add comments to the case. However, they'd like the Case Detail last modified date to be updated each time a comment or email is updated or created.
Any workarounds for this? seems like a requirement for tracking proper support metrics.

I had the same issue and I found a simple solution this.


Create a workflow rule on Case Comment which triggers a field update on Parent Case. 

This will update the 'Last Modified Date' on the Case Detail.


Hope this helps!
