Use of @ in comments to notify a specific user

Onshape help says: "Use the “@” sign to direct a comment towards a specific user."

Huh?  Exactly how does that work?

I tried and nothing happens.

    Start by typing @ and then the first few letter of their username.  Then, pause for the list to appear, and select their username.

    I believe the list is populated from user you have shared Doc's with in the past, so if you've not shared then the list will be empty.

    Owen is correct - the list of shortcuts (trigger by using the @ when typing in the comments field) is seeded with those people the document is shared with and others you've shared with in the past.

    Weird, because I was able to use it for @bill_daniels and I've never met the guy before this thread.

    Andrew and Owen are referring to commenting from within a document.

    I received a comment from you via e-mail from [email protected]  Looks like a message on a bid.  I could not find it inside the project.  I have received other alerts.

    Perhaps the reply you wrote to his post was your means of introduction.
