Ping Others In Comments

It would be great to be able to utilize something like @dave in a comment, and Dave would get email notification about the comment he was pinged in. This is something that ZoHo utilizes and is extremely helpful - especially if you have a question for someone who isn't assigned to a task.

  • Great suggestion Dave.

    It would be interesting to hear from the Community regarding this.

  • Definitely an option that should be offered. We have been working on automating every aspect of our workflow, and tagging users in comments will help this effort.

  • A critical element if you ask me and would improve workflow tremendously.

  • It is a feature that I know I would use. I tried to do it the other day. I needed to ask my boss a question about a particular task. I sent him a hangout message and he couldn't remember what task I was talking about. Would have been nice to just ping him in the comments. Instead I assigned the task to him so he could look over it and tell me if he wanted me to continue working on it.

  • I also think this is a critical feature that is missing. Every system or site I've used including SF or Bitrix allows you to "tag" or mention another person either in a task or comment and notify them. As a workaround, I assign the task to the person I want to see it, then I add in a comment and ask them to assign it back when they have reviewed it. Very cumbersome and slow. Let's roll @mentions out!

  • If I'm adding a note to a Task, and I want other team members to know about it, this would be the way to do it

  • Variations of this "@mention" functionality have been in the discussions for the past couple of years. We really need this!

  • Yes, agreed. This would be a huge benefit. I frequently work with other people who I'd like to chat with about specific projects, tasks, and opportunities, and being able to mention would make a whole lot of sense. Every other CRM and PM tool allows you to do that, seems simple enough to add!
