Mention Users or Roles in a Comment

To notify a specific user or role about a comment, you can tag them inside the comment. They will receive an email as well as an in-app notification.

Tip: You can mention a maximum of 20 users (e.g., John Smith) and 20 roles (e.g., Developer) in a single comment.

To tag a user or role in a comment, log in to Contentstack and perform the following steps:

  1. Go to your stack, and edit an existing entry.
  2. On the entry page, hover over the field with the comments, and click on the Add comment icon.
  3. While entering a comment, type “@” and start typing the name of the person you need to mention. From the suggestions provided, select the user you want to tag.

    Note: You can now mention users or roles for specific content blocks, texts, and images within the JSON RTE Comments.

  4. Once done, click on Post.

Note: Any user or role with “read” access to a specific content type or entry will be able to use the entry comments feature.
