Privately Mention People in Your Notes

By drawing the @ symbol you can quickly get a list of people to privately mention in your notes. Using an @mention will not share your notes with them. You can @mention people as a faster way to reference them and you can use Search to find them later.

Write the @ Symbol

When you write the @ symbol, a list of people will appear. The list contains people that you have had activity with from your account. On pages with a Meeting Header, the attendees in the meeting will be shown at the top of the list.

At Mentions

Search for People

You can search for people that aren’t in the list by writing their name immediately to the right of the @ symbol. It may take a few seconds for results to obtained from your account.

Add a Person

When you tap a person from the list of people, the @ symbol and any letters you drew will be replaced by their avatar or initials.

Person Details

You can tap that person’s avatar to see more details about them, or take other actions on the @mention like Delete or Copy.
