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, page, or file from the list to get someone's attention or create a link 2. The @ symbol can be used virtually anywhere and will help you with the following:
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.
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.
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 3. When you see the correct person auto-suggested, select them and hit Enter. A task will be created on the page and assigned to the correct person automatically.
