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.
Note: If you send a message and forget to mention someone, simply editing the message and including the @mention or highlight word will not trigger a notification.
