Make sure others are receiving your replies -- @mention them ๐Ÿ˜Š

Those of you who reply to other people's comments, I want to thank you so much for doing that because it makes such a difference when they know that their comment has been acknowledged and they get some appreciation or some additional, you know, input for the conversation. I wanna make sure you know that they probably aren't getting notified about your comment or your reply unless you mention them by name with the the way the system works. So for example, you know, Jeffrey made an intro here and I replied with a mention and above here, for example, under David's comment, Jeffrey was very kind to reply to it, but I don't know I don't I doubt that they would receive it. So let me show you how to make sure David receives it. So I'm gonna click on reply.
So this is the way you you nest your comment your comment underneath someone else's comment is by clicking the reply button. Underneath theirs. And if I wanna make sure David sees it, I go like this at david, and I'm just typing out his name here. And then once I find him. And I I just wanna make sure, like, if it's the right person.
Right? So so just, you know, look look look at their profile photo. Okay? That's that's the right person. So when I when I when I do the at and start typing their name, then I select, I click on them.
And now when I, you know and it doesn't have to be in the beginning of the comment. It could be anywhere else during the comment. But as long as I've mentioned them and I clicked reply, post apply, it will email them. Because the way I've set up my the the way I've set up the notification, the emails by default, is you'll only get emails by default if you if someone mentions you by name just like this. Unless you went into the course yourself and change the notifications to to everyone.
But anyway, I hope this is helpful and allows you to have more connection and contribution and relationship with others in the course.

To make sure that the people you're replying to get notified of your comment, use the @mention feature. Watch the video above.

Note that this feature isn't currently supported in the Simplero app but will be in the near future. For now, to mention others, use the web (computer) version.

@George Kaoย , will a tag still notify someone if they've turned off notifications completely from a course or topic? (I hope so! :) )

@celina catipovskiย when you type @ you then have to immediately start typing the person's name, and within seconds, it should appear as a choice that you can click on.

I find the specificity of detail intriguing - step you step you walk us through.ย  I know you said it's okay to skip around in a prior video but so far it seems like each video is another brick in the hat manual and I don't want to miss anything...ย @George Kaoย
