Add @ mentions to groups in Conversations

Would be great to add mentions via a group i.e. @Purchasing and I could notify all users within that group.

We love this idea too! While it's not a part of our current plan, this is exactly the kind of thing our team is thinking about every day. If we believe we can make this idea a reality, we'll plan to update the status here.

    We have set up groups through our admin. However we cannot access the groups in conversations. We are seeking the ability to send to all in a conversation or specific groups instead of adding the individuals. How can we accomplish this?

    Essentially we are trying to mimic the function used in outlook for group e-mails.

  • It would be a great time saver if I could type in a mention to all people with a sheet / workspace as I am constantly having to mention all the individuals when I want to notify everyone.

    It could be as easy as @sheet name - then the message.


    Thanks

    The most asked question I receive from my company is @groups in conversations and in proofing. This would be a game changer and save additional time.

  • Agreed. This would be very helpful. We set up a distribution list in Outlook and added that in our Smartsheet group. Then we can @ mention that address in our comments and a message goes to all the users in the DL. The only drawback is that 2 notifications are sent to the DL by Smartsheet every time the group is added to a new sheet. If everything you are working on is in a workspace you're already in, you probably wouldn't get these.
