Mentions are designed to get you sharing content in Vizlib Teamwork with other users directly from the app.
When you add a mention for a user in a comment, they'll receive a notification via email. You can add text, and attach images to the message and the comment will be saved in the app as well. Figure 1 shows a mention being added to a comment in a Teamwork stream. Figure 2 shows a Teamwork stream with mentions added.
