@mention others

Scroll down to see how to do this in Symphony 1.5

In Symphony 2.0:

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). You can also mention @all or @online in chats with less than 30 members (figure 2).
