  • no spaces in @name between first and last names
  • when adding multiple @name to one item, @name can be separated with a space, comma, or semicolon
  • upper or lower case does not matter when adding @name
  • if two people are on the project with the same first name and the user only enters the @firstname, both users on the project will be assigned to the item
  • an invalid error would apply in the following scenarios: a misspelling, invalid user, a user that is not on the selected project
  • if the users name is misspelled, the item will be added with an invalid error in the description and shown in red (i.e. Invalid: @chukc)
  • if only one @name is added and it's invalid, the item will be assigned to the person that added it
  • if multiple @name are added and some are valid and some are invalid, the valid ones will be added and the invalid ones will get the invalid error
  • the invalid message only applies in the list view

Order of shortcuts:

  • For new tickets, calendar events, and notes, the shortcuts can be added in any order
  • For new Tasks, shortcuts can be added in any order as long as the date setting is after the task description, for example:
task description @name date noemail
task description noemail date @name
task description date noemail @name

Additional criteria

  • if you add @name, noemail, or a date shortcut, and also use the panel settings to make selections, the values entered as text inputs will override the panel settings
