Mention a team member

Who can use this feature?
  • All members and Guests can use this feature. 
  • Available to teams on free and paid plans.

While holding a conversation in a channel, you may need to call the attention of a team member. Type a person’s @username in your message to grab their attention.

If you @mention someone who isn’t currently in the channel, Slackbot will ask you what to do next:

By default, the first name you enter in your Slack profile is also included as one of your highlight words, and will notify you in the same way as an @mention. Some teams may choose to turn this off, but you can still choose to include it in your highlight words.
