Use @mentions

Use @mentions to bring your teammates' attention to items within tasks, Chat views, and Docs. You can also @mention tasks and Docs. 

@mention people in a task or from your Inbox

You can @mention a person, task, or Doc in task descriptions, task comments, or when replying to a comment from Inbox.

When you @mention a person in a task the following happens:

  • When they're mentioned in a task comment, they become a watcher of that task.
  • When they're mentioned in a task description, they will not be added as a watcher.

  • When they're mentioned in a task description, they will receive a Notification. You can disable Send Notification from the person selector. 
  • The comment they're mentioned in is highlighted in the task.
  • Their names are highlighted in their Inbox
  • When you mention a person in a comment on a private task, you have the option to share that task. 

To @mention a person: 

  1. From the comment or task description, type @ and a person or Team's initials.
    • You can also type @ to display the person selector.  UseAtMentionsPersonSelector.png
  2. Choose the person or Team. You can @mention all assignees or watchers using @watchers or @assignee.
    • Names are prioritized by how often you tag them.
