Inside of conversations, you can use @mention in order to notify specific people that a message is intended for them. This will alert recipients that they have been mentioned, and can help to ensure that important messages are not overlooked in the forum.
- The conversations tab in Microsoft Teams…can greatly improve communication in your class.…But in order to take communication to the next level,…you can use the @ mentions feature.…Let's take a look at what this means.…If I'm including a message in the conversation forum,…but I want to alert a particular student or students,…I can do so by using an @ message.…Right now I'm going to go down to…the genetics exam study group.…And here I'm going to type in something…that's a specific message to a student.…So, here I'll click the @ symbol,…and then start typing in a students name…or you can see here that it auto populates that.…
Let's say, for instance,…I know that Sophia Jackson had a question,…so I want to type in here, and say…Did you get your question answered…regarding the essay question?…What did you learn?…And the reason this is important is because now…Sophia Jackson will receive a specific alert…in her activity saying that she received an @ mention.…She can also receive an email notification.…So, it's a great way to make sure…
