If you need to post a message and you want to make sure that a specific person sees that message, you can use an @mention. This adds a person's name into a message and also sends them an alert, letting them know that the message is targeted to them. This video shows how to send an @mention to somebody and it also shows what happens when you recieve an @mention.
- [Instructor] There's one small feature in Teams…that I think is really powerful…and I want to make sure…as many people know about it as possible.…The at mention feature is there…for when you want to post a message…in a normal group conversation thread…while also targeting a specific person…to draw their attention to it.…I'll start here in this conversation thread…and we're talking about an upcoming meeting…and it is very important…that one of my coworkers attends this meeting…and that he is prepared to sign off…on some work that we're doing.…If he is not prepared for this meeting,…it can throw off our schedule.…
Since I really need him to see the message,…I'm going to at mention him.…So I'll hit reply and I'll write my message,…but the way you do an at mention…is to first type the at symbol…followed by that person's name.…So I'll start typing his name,…it will search my company directory,…it finds him so I can just click on his name…and it fills in his full name there.…Notice also that his name is in a different color…
