Mentions are a simple way to get someone's attention in Workflowy.
When you are in a shared space where users have been invited via email with "Full access" or "Can edit" permissions, you can use the @ symbol to create a mention.
When you mention someone, they will receive a notification that they have been mentioned and will be able to see:
- Who mentioned them
- When they were mentioned
- Where they were mentioned
When someone mentions you, you will be able to see the same information.
What can I do with mentions?
You're free to use mentions in any way that makes sense to you. Some suggestions for mentions are:
- Ask a question
- Assign a task
- Start a conversation
- Request more information
- Ask for a review
