@Mentioning users in comments

By @mentioning a user in your organization in a comment, you send them an immediate email notification. This is a great way to prompt a user to come and work on an urgent checklist or task.

Do this by typing “@” into your comment, followed by the user’s name. Once you see the correct user’s profile picture and name, click that entry to add them to your comment, as shown below:


  • Users must have verified email addresses and be part of your organization
  • User names must be unique
  • User names must not contain special characters
  • You cannot @mention yourself

Note: If you have set task permissions so that a certain user does not have permission to see a task, then they will not receive an @mention comment notification.
