Mention Users in a Coordination Issue Comment

Objective

To mention one or more users in a comment on a coordination issue.

Background

When team members need input from others on a coordination issue, they can @mention users to instantly send an email notification with a link to the issue, as opposed to having to manually send multiple emails to assignees (or notify all users on a distribution list that might not be involved in the actual issue).

In addition, this allows for project collaborators who might not be directly involved in the coordination process (e.g. concrete foreman, facilities managers, engineers, and other stakeholders) to be pulled in as needed to answer questions and provide input on areas of their expertise.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • To mention users in a comment, 'Read Only' or higher permissions on the project's Coordination Issues tool.
      Note: Only users with 'Read Only' or higher permissions can be mentioned using the @ symbol.
  • Additional Information:
    • You can mention multiple users in a comment. However, each user must be added to the comment using the @ symbol. 
    • After you add a comment to a coordination issue, any users that were mentioned will receive an email notification alerting them of the comment. This email will include a link to view the coordination issue and comment in Procore.
