@mention others

Get someone’s attention by mentioning them: type @ before the person’s name. Matching names will display as you type. Select the name you want from the list and the name will turn blue in your text box (Figure 1):

When you send your message, the person you mention receives a red alert in their notifications. Likewise, if someone @mentions you, it appears in your notifications in red as well (Figure 3):
