About this task

Users can set their notification preferences so they receive notifications only when they are mentioned. Mentioning a user creates a shortcut to view their basic information and send them a direct message.


  1. Open a Connect group conversation.
  2. In the message field, type the @ character.
    A suggestion menu appears with the names of the conversation members.
  3. Select the person you want to mention and send the message.
