New @mentions make notifications easy
Making it easy to keep your team in the loop about updates is crucial for transparency. With our new @mention feature for notifications, you can quickly tag the right team members inline in your comments and issue descriptions.
Mentions in Backlog
Rather than adding users to the notification box to bring attention to updates, you can now mention users directly in your text using the @ symbol and their Unique ID.
Just type the “@” symbol and start writing out their name. A members dropdown list will appear with all relevant Unique IDs. Click on the one you want, and that user is tagged directly.
When viewing mentions in Backlog, you can hover over the unique ID to display the full name and user profile picture of the tagged person.
Mentioning teams & participants
You can also mention teams or participants (i.e., users who have already been tagged previously within an issue). Once you save your comment or issue, all will be notified directly.
Project transparency is simpler than ever with mentions. Try them today!
