@Mentions

@mentions are a great way to call someone’s attention to a specific message on Glip, or make reference to an item previously posted to Glip. When you are composing a message, just type the “@” sign and then as you start typing a dropdown list with possible matches will appear.

You can @mention any person, team or item posted to Glip. You can even mention multiple people, teams or items in a single post, or any combination thereof. When you click on the link for a mentioned person, you are brought to your one-on-one conversation with that person. Similarly, when you click on the link for a mentioned team, you are brought to that team’s conversation. Lastly, clicking on the link for a mentioned item displays the Details view for the given item.

When mentioning a person, you are limited to the people in the current conversation. If Ella mentions Patrick, for example, she would see the post like this.

Patrick, on the other hand, would see his name highlighted in yellow. Mentions of you are displayed differently so that you can more quickly identify them in the conversation stream.

When the unread messages for a given conversation contain @mentions of you, the badge is displayed in orange so that you can jump to those conversations first.

For reference, you can always go to the Dashboard to see a list of recent mentions of you.

@mentions are treated the same as replies on Glip. If you view the details of an item, such as a task, you'll see that both replies and mentions are included in the item's "thread".

There are separate email/mobile notifications for when you are mentioned in a post. See Notifications for more information.

    When you have a german keyboard, you have to disable the "Keyboard Shortcuts" for this to work. Otherwise you will open a dialog for link entry.

    We haven't made the announcement yet because we still need to finish things up for Android (versions < 6.0), but if you're on iOS or Android 6.0+, you can now @mention from mobile.

    Mentions is not working in the Task description and in notes, that would be helpful.

    We were just talking about and wishing for this again today. Would be a useful way to alert specific user groups when an org is a prolific Glip user (a good thing, right?).
