Applies to: Microsoft Teams.
Tags allow you to swiftly reach a group of people altogether.
With tags, you can cluster people according to attributes, such as role, project, skill, training, or location. For example, a “Nurse” or “Manager” or Designer” tag will enable you to reach groups of people in Teams without having to type every single name.
After a tag is added, simply @mention it in a channel. Everyone who has been registered that tag will obtain a notification similarly if they were @mentioned specifically.
An alternate way to deploy a tag is to commence a new chat and then choose the tag that is directed to your desired audience.
