How do I mention someone in a group conversation in Workplace Chat?
You can only mention a coworker if you're logged into Workplace from your computer or the Workplace Chat app.
With Mentions, you can directly notify someone in a group conversation that a message needs a response. When you mention someone, they'll get a notification. Only people who are already in the group conversation can be mentioned in a message. You can turn mentions notifications off at any time.
To mention someone in a group conversation:
- Open the group conversation.
- Type @ and then click the name of the person you want to mention.
- Write your message and then click Send.
Note: @everyone will mention everyone who is a member of the chat group and @here will mention all active members of a chat group.
