Tagging Other Users With @ Mentions

  • Updated

Overview

In Harmonize discussions, Q&A boards, PDF Annotations and Chat, users can tag specific users in the content they create.  These @ Mentions help draw users back into the conversation through specific notifications to the tagged users.  The list of users you can tag is always based on the users that have access to that same Harmonize resource as you and are within the resource's visibility settings (if applicable).
