Allow me to @mention someone to send simple notifications/emails that link back to the spreadsheet.
A simple way to send e-mail reminders from spreadsheet.
Hey Adrian! The @ is definitely the right place to start, here's some instructions: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/use-mention-in-comments-to-tag-someone-for-feedback-644bf689-31a0-4977-a4fb-afe01820c1fd
Note that this is how it's done in organizations, not necessarily on a consumer version!
Connie - This is great news! I am trying to @mention someone right now and it is not working. Is there a trick in addition to just typing @"name"?
We’re excited to announce @mention email notifications! This feature is available for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on all five Office platforms (Web, Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android).
Google Docs have got it right:
Send a comment to a specific person
To make sure someone sees a comment, you can add them to it. They will receive an email notification with your comment.
1. Open a document, spreadsheet, or presentation.
2. Insert and type a comment.
3. Somewhere in your comment, add the name (with the first letter capitalized). When the correct person is suggested click their name. You can also add the email address of the person you want to see the message.
4. Click Comment.
Note: If you add someone who doesn't have permission to see the file, you will be asked to share the file.
