|Using a Jive Community / Getting Started|
Using @mention, you can alert people, places, and groups that you're talking about them.
When you create or comment on content in your community, you have the ability to mention a person, place, document, or other piece of content. This is a way to give a shout out to someone or something to catch their attention. You might say, "Way to close deals today @Joey Ramone!" or "Trivia Night was a success for Team Chaos! @Trivia Night Group." This notifies any person mentioned after the @ that you are talking about him or her. (Members of groups you mention will see an @mention in Followed Activity.) When someone is @mentioned in a piece of content, a status update, or elsewhere, a notification of the activity flows into their Inbox. In Jive, @mentioning doubles as a link picker in content or in status updates. For example, you can add links to a document or group by typing some of the words in the title after typing @. You can even use both formats in the same status update, for example to say "@Joey Ramone and @Johnny Ramone, please check out my question @Why is the Submit form not working today?
