Just type @ and mention-
Sometimes you’ll need to get the attention of another member of your community. Triggering the Mentions tool is easy, simply add the “@” symbol in front of a member's name and select.
In doing so, your member will receive a notification stating that he or she was mentioned in the message.
If your member clicks on their notification, it will take them to the post, and clicking on the tagged member's name will directly lead them to their profile where you can start a private chat.
