Hi,

 

How does one get mentions to work in word documents? We are trying to collaborate on word documents in Teams and the mention feature doesn't seem to work. This support page indicates it should. https://support.office.com/en-us/article/use-mention-in-comments-to-tag-someone-for-feedback-644bf68...

 

Thank you.

Are you using online version or desktop version!
This feature vegan Rolling out in September so there is a chance you’ve not received it yet
Adam
Adam is correct, mentioning in being rolled out and not available yet for all Office 365 customers WW

Hi Adam, I've been using both. Thanks for the update, I'll keep an eye out for it. I think it will be very helpful for collaborating.

 

Cheers,
Taylor
