Tagging Users Using @mention


Use @mention to draw users’ attention to a project, task, subtask, or an on-going conversation. Simply write @ in a comment followed by the name of the user. Such users receive notifications only when you @mention them, keeping regular updates to the assigned users. This is helpful when you want to share specific updates or important conversations with those who are otherwise not added to a project, task, or sub-task.


Benefits of using @mention:

  • Share updates without adding users to a project
  • Highlight important conversations only when you want
  • Ensure no one misses out on important updates
  • Restrict regular updates to the added users only


To tag a user with @mention in a comment of a project, task, or a subtask:


Step 1. In the comment box under the 'Activity' section, type @ followed by the initials of the user’s name to reveal the user list starting with that letter. Select the user you want to tag. @mentioned users will get access to this project automatically. 


Note: The user list consists of users that are added to your project account. If you wish to add an outsider, you must first add them to your project account.
