@ mentions

Follow

If you type @ in a chat, you will see a typeahead with a list of names of people in that conversation. Naturally you can use tab for auto-completion here and also search via real name rather than GitHub username.

If the person you mention has notifications enabled in their web browser or are using the Gitter Mac App, they will see a notification that they have been mentioned.

    Facebook has a feature that allows one-to-one communication with other member. So there is advantage that messages are both private and do not clutter up text messages for people not involved. In light of that, is there a way to send a private text message? Or a gitter function that sends an email to said person?

    Of course you can, just click on any member in a room and choose "Chat Privately" or /query @username via text input.

    How can I jump to my mention though? I'm currently having the problem that I can't find where my name was mentioned in a high volume channel, but the Mac App indicates ( I guess?) that my name was mentioned with a red @ symbol?

    So, it's not possible, I take it?

    Hi, sorry missed this entirely. Not at the moment, but we're just finalising some new design work to make it happen soon.
