There are often times in public projects, where it’s best to only communicate with certain team members and avoid cluttering everyone’s inbox. Not every project conversation is appropriate for each person on the project and it can quickly get overwhelming. Shouldn’t there be a way to either lock conversations to certain members or have admins set notifications to notifications only if you’re @ someone. It’s fine for everyone to see if, say, they log into the project, but it just doesn’t make sense for everyone to be pinged on every single conversation.
One member from the community had this idea of create a task between said users and discuss in the comment field. But that is indeed a workaround.
