When you work on a project or team with several people, you may not want every single person alerted each time a comment is made.
Mentions is a great way to alert people that a conversation requires their attention. It also allows you to pull in people who aren't on the project, for example if your CEO needs to feedback on just one screen, a mention is a great way to alert them.
How to mention someone:
- Open the comments sidebar
- Start typing in the comment entry field and type '@' to show a list of collaborators on your projects and in your directory
- Select the user from the list
The user(s) will then get a email and activity feed notification alerting them to the mention.
Want everyone on the project to get email alerts about every comment? Go to Project Settings > General > then enable Comment notifications.
