How do I mention someone in a group conversation in Workplace Chat?
You can directly notify someone that a message needs a response by mentioning them in a group chat. When you mention someone, they'll get a unique notification. Only people who are already in the group conversation can be mentioned in this way.
To mention someone in a group conversation:
- Open the group conversation.
- Type @ followed by the person’s name.
- When it appears, click the name of the person you want to mention.
- Write your message and then press Send.
You can also write @everyone to mention everyone who is a member of the chat group, and @here to mention everyone who has recently been active in the chat.
Please note that all workplace users have the option of turning mention notifications off at any time.
