@-mention a team member
When having a conversation in Zulip, it is sometimes necessary to call the attention of another member. You can @-mention (alert) other users by mentioning them in the body of a message.
Please note that you cannot @-mention users when you edit a message, since they may have already read the message.
You can view any messages calling your attention by clicking on the Mentions filters in the left sidebar.
- Compose a new message or reply.
In the Compose your message here... field, type
@followed by the email address or part of the username of the user you want to @-mention. When you begin typing an email address or username, autocomplete suggestions will appear.
You can type
@**all**to mention everyone subscribed to the stream you send the message to.
Once you select an autocomplete suggestion, the name or email address of the user will be replaced with
nameis the name of the selected user.
If you attempt to @-mention someone who is not subscribed to the stream in which you're posting the message, Zulip will ask if you would like to subscribe the user to the stream.
