How do I mention someone in a message?

Last updated:

To mention (i.e. refer to) a participant of a conversation, do the following:

  1. Create a new message or edit an existing message.
  2. Type your text as you normally do and when you want to mention someone, just type @persons’s_username. For example: "Do you agree @Paul?"

    As you type in a person’s name, a list of suggested names (i.e. participants of the corresponding conversation) is displayed.

  3. Select the participant you want to mention.
  4. When you are ready, send your message.

    The person’s name is marked up and clickable/tapabble, so that you can navigate to the User’s details page.

Whenever you mention someone, that person will be notified via the Notification panel. From that panel they can navigate to the message where their name has been mentioned and follow up the conversation.

You cannot mention suspended and deleted conversation participants.
