Mention a user

Sometime's it's useful to mention individuals in a discussion to notify them of information that is particularly relevant to them.

Mentioning someone can be done simply by typing '@' - this will produce a dropdown list of users who are part of the group. 

Simply continue typing their name or select them with your mouse to mention them in your message.

How is a user notified

When mentioned, a user's own name will appear as yellow, giving a visual queue when reading new messages.

After several minutes, if they have not read the message, they will be notified by email. Unread mentions are also included in weekly email updates.
