New feature: User mentions 🎉
This week, we've launched a new feature that makes a world of difference when it comes to keeping your teams and stakeholders in the loop: User mentions!
How does it work?
You can now @-mention your workspace members in a comment or in the item description if you want them to take a look at something you've edited or worked on. Simply type
@ followed by the person's name, use the arrows
↓ on your keyboard to select the person you want to mention, and press
If you @-mention another workspace member, they will be notified right away. They'll see a red badge appear next to the Notifications icon in their navigation bar with the number of notifications waiting for them, including user mentions.

Improved item search
We've improved the search function for several instances, such as searching for items when you're trying to add a dependency or while using the workspace's general item search. It will be much easier to look for an item without knowing the exact item name, saving you so much time and hassle.

For the Priority Ratings app, in addition to accessing the priority ratings of an item on the item panel, you can now navigate back and forth within the panel with the

In-app notifications for Priority Poker game invites
You'll never miss a Priority Poker game invitation again. From now on, you'll get an in-app notification when someone wants to invite you to their Priority Poker game. Prioritize away!
