INTRODUCTION

This article describes how to send a message to a specific person in Yammer.

PROCEDURE

There are three ways to send a message to a specific person.

At (@) mention a person

To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Anywhere in your message, type the "at" sign (@), followed by the person's user name. 
  2. Start to type the person's user name, and a drop-down menu of user names that are matches appears. 
  3. Select the appropriate person from the drop-down menu by pressing the Up Arrow, Down Arrow, and Enter keys. 
Or, you can completely type the person's name. However, you have to type the user name as entered in the system. For example, you might have to type Carl Hartwell and not carl hartwell.

The recipient of the message will receive a notification about the received message.
