Using @Mentions

Help Center > Tips

Typing the @ symbol in Samepage triggers a few useful tools. Upon typing it along with the first letter of anything you're trying to mention, a suggestion list will appear 1. You can then select a person, chat, team, file, page, or folder from the list to get someone's attention or create a link 2. The @ symbol can be used in a chat message or on a page.

@Mention anything!

Mentioning people

By typing the @ symbol and the first few characters of someone's name, you'll see Samepage auto-suggest a list of people. When posting a comment that contains an @mentioned user, that user will get a special notification. Instead of a red dot with a number in it, they'll see a red dot with the @ symbol in it. This will let them know they've been mentioned specifically and will often grab their attention faster. Please note that @mentioning people on pages does not send a notication.

Mentioning chats

Simply type the @ symbol followed by a few characters of the chat's title, and you'll see it suggested. Click the suggestion to create a link to the chat for your fellow co-workers.

Mentioning teams

Similar to mentioning people, the @ symbol also helps you mention specific teams. Mentioning a team automatically creates a link, helping people navigate to the team you're suggesting. If they've been to the team before, it'll take them to their most recently visited place within the team. If not, the link will take them to the team's list of pages.

Mentioning files

Files stored in a team's FILES section can be @mentioned on pages and in comments. @ mentioning these files automatically creates a link for easier navigation. To @mention a file, simply type the @ symbol followed by the first few characters of the file name. You'll see it pop up in an auto-suggestion list. Select it to have Samepage create a link to the file for you.

Mentioning pages

By typing the @ symbol and the first few characters of another page's title, you'll see Samepage auto-suggest a list of pages. Upon selecting a page from the list, Samepage will create a link to the page, making navigation between related pages easier.

Mentioning page folders

If your organization has taken advantage of organizing pages in folders, you'll be able to @mention them as well.

Assigning Tasks

While typing on a page, you can assign a task to someone using the @ symbol. Simply start a new line with open and closed brackets, like this: []. Then hit the space bar and type the title of a task. Then hit the space bar again and type the @ symbol followed by the first few characters of someone's name 1. When you see the correct person auto-suggested, select them and hit Enter 2. A task will be created on the page and assigned to the correct person automatically.
