Tag someone in comment

Community
On our radar

It would be very good If can add someone's name to the comment of post/idea by typing @(Or any other way).

Once typed @, It should list all the people who are in touch with that post/idea.

So, That person will get notified that it is relevant to him.

Hi Amol

why would you like to do that? Currently, you can reach out a person by PM. Why in a forum post?


Cheers

Hello Ana,

If we want to say something to a specific person (after any comment from him), We need to type his name there explicitly, Sometimes difficult or maybe a spelling mistakes.

So that, It will say that I'm pointing to someone by mentioning his name.

For example, @Ana, As you said...., @Amol, Can you give some detail....

Unlike in other community, We use @<name> to specify someone from the friend list, So that the person will get a notification that someone has mentioned you in a comment, etc.


For better clarity and performance, maybe, You can show a list of only those people who have commented on that post.

And also you can put a link to that person's profile in that tag to check it easily.

Hi,

In addition, I think it should send him/her a notification that he/she has been tagged.

Hello Amol,

Thank you so much for your idea. I’m marking this as “on our radar” since our users would benefit from this. Still no date for a delivery, but we’ll keep an eye on it.


Thanks again!

Merged this idea with '''Do @ me'' with notifications throughout the community pages' (created on 18 Jan 2019 09:40:10 by Nordin Ahdi)

I see a lot of community members doing the following when posting something on the forum or adding a new idea for example.

When they directly want to address someone, they insert a link to someone's profile page with his/her name as a label like this example of myself: Nordin Ahdi.

So to make this easier, I would like to see the possibility to '@someone' throughout the community pages. This way that person could maybe receive notification messages which could be accessed via their profile page. It would be even cooler to see a Feedback message with that notification if your logged in at outsystems.com.

That is also useful to tag someone that is already known to have good knowledge about a subject and provide a quality reply to that forum topic.
