User Guide for Cisco Jabber Windows 11.9 | User Guide | Chats | Chat Rooms | Mentioning Users in Chat Rooms
When other users mention your username, it creates a notification in the My mentions section of your chat room filters. Mentioning other users notifies them that they were mentioned in a chat room.
Before You Begin Procedure
Users only receive a notification if the chat room is public and the user is part of the organization, or they are a member of the chat room.
Mentions must be enabled by your system administrator.
|1 || To create a mention for another user, click the @ button in the chat window tray. You can also enter the @ symbol in the chat window. An inline contact search box displays.|
|2 || In the search box, enter the name of the person that you want to mention. The client displays user names that match what you are typing. |
|3 || Select the username that you want to mention. You can mention a username that does not have a Jabber ID associated with it. You can use the @ symbol as part of your text entry. |
|4 || Use the Esc key to exit the mention field.|
After you send the message, a notification is created for the mentioned user in their My mentions list, with a link to the conversation in the room where the mention was made.
