Hi @Giorgos_Noulikas! As it stands, it’s currently not possible to @ mention tags or custom fields. You can @ mention users, tasks, projects or teams. I’m moving your post to the #productfeedback so other customers can upvote and support your request. Don’t forget to cast your vote as well!

Interesting feature request! I’ll upvote.

Hello @Emily_Roman,

I posted it on bugs because in Asana guide https://asana.com/guide/help/fundamentals/text it is clearly mentioned that you can @mention Tags

Very good point! I hope for you they don’t just update the doc :grinning:


The first sentence also doesn’t highlight that you can @mention a Team (like the second sentence does)

Thanks all for flagging this! I’ve escalated to our team to investigate further. I’ll let you know as soon as I have an update :slight_smile:

Hi all, our product team confirmed that unfortunately we don’t support the option to @ mention tags. I’ve created a task for our content team to update the article. Thanks again for reporting this and sharing your feedback!

As you said they will just update the doc :frowning:

@Emily_Roman I see they updated the Guide but my point might have been missed. There is no mention of Teams in the first sentence even though that is a component you can @mention. Minor detail.

Sorry I missed this, @Jerod_Hillard! I’ll send your feedback to our content team so this sentence is updated as well. Thanks!

@Emily_Roman I understand that mistakes in documents can happen, but I am surprised that a company like Asana wouldn’t just make good on their documentation and build in the feature of @mentioning tags. Seems like such a lazy solution to just correct the documentation without any mention of it. A better option would have been to update the documentation with a clause saying “@mentioning tags is not yet available but will be soon”, if in fact your product manages couldn’t just prioritize this feature.
