Mention someone in a group chat on Workplace Chat
Change platform:Computer Help
You can directly notify someone that a message needs a response by mentioning them in a group chat. You can only mention people who are in the group chat.
People who are mentioned in a group chat get a notification unless they’ve turned off notifications for the group chat.
To mention someone in a group chat:
- In the chat, type @ followed by the person’s name.
- Don’t include a space between the @ and the person’s name.
- When it appears, click the name of the person you want to mention.
- Write your message and then press enter or click to send.
You can also write @everyone to mention everyone in the group chat, or @here to mention everyone who has recently been active in the chat.
Tagging someone in a Workplace post
As well as mentioning someone in a group chat, you can also tag people or nearby locations in posts on Workplace.
