Mentions are a way to draw someones attention to a message on Blink. When somebody is , their name will be highlighted in the message and a notification will be sent to them.
Use mentions sparingly to reserve their impact!
This is useful for getting the attention of a chat member even though they may have All Message notifications disabled.
When you use a mention:
- The sender is assured that the person they mentioned got a notification immediately.
- The recipient can reduce the notification level in a chat, safe in the knowledge that if someone needs their attention immediately they can be mentioned.
How to mention someone
Simply prefix a persons name with an @ symbol in the reply area. As you start typing, a list of chat members will appear for you to select.
