With this new release, comes the ability to @mention a specific colleague to bring a comment to their direct attention.

To use, simply type the “@” symbol followed by the first letters of a name and a dropdown will appear with text-filtered user profiles – simply click on the one you need.

When a comment with an @mention is sent, there is additional functionality to bring it to the notice of your tagged colleague.

If the @mentioned colleague is not logged into Method Grid and reading the comments then, at the next (4-hour) notification sweep, they will receive an email from Method Grid making them aware of this new comment.

This new feature is the perfect way to enable a conversation within your Method Grid solution – making the process of building out your IP a collaborative, every-day endeavour.

Every user has the ability to configure their notifications via the Settings > Notification Settings page – which now includes this new @mention feature.
