NEW FEATURE: Get attention with an @mention

NEW FEATURE: Get your colleagues attention with an @mention

The ability to write comments in Method Grid, at multiple levels (grid library, individual grids, individual elements) has been in place for awhile.

You have also been able to see in-app notifications (new grids, new elements etc) for some time – see this blog for more on that.

With this new release, comes the ability to @mention a specific colleague to bring a comment to their direct attention.

To use, simply type the “@” symbol followed by the first letters of a name and a dropdown will appear with text-filtered user profiles – simply click on the one you need.

When a comment with an @mention is sent, there is additional functionality to bring it to the notice of your tagged colleague.

If the @mentioned colleague is not logged into Method Grid and reading the comments then, at the next (4-hour) notification sweep, they will receive an email from Method Grid making them aware of this new comment.

This new feature is the perfect way to enable a conversation within your Method Grid solution – making the process of building out your IP a collaborative, every-day endeavour.

Every user has the ability to configure their notifications via the Settings > Notification Settings page – which now includes this new @mention feature.

Next up, we will be integrating a number of popular chat applications (via webhooks for Slack, Microsoft Teams, Google Chat) with Method Grid – to further support our users in bringing together an optimised suite of collaborative enterprise solutions.
