How do I do that?  I just made a post about iPad compatibility and wanted to mention community manager.  How do I do that?  Thanks.

    Husker,

     

    If you mean how do you tag someone..... type in the @ sign then their name. Like this... nuhusker

    Husker,

    hold down the shift key while depressing the @ key.  A list will appear of Insider names.  Whilst still depressing the @ key, type the first letter of the name you wish to 'mention' without typing any spaces.  keep typing the name, and when you see the name that you want to mention, click it.  nuhusker.  You'll know you did it right, because you will see the name in blue now, in your comment.  Remember, no spaces.

     

    Hope this helps.

      I haven't even had to hold down the shift key.  Once I start typing the @ and then start typing the user id, like nuhusker, the list keeps getting smaller as I type, until I see the User ID I am trying to tag, and then I just click on that name to choose it for the tag.

        So you're saying, shift + @, then you're good to go.  Then just type the member's name at that point, or use the drop down list.  Sounds good.

          IF using an iPad, there is an @ key, whereas on teh PC, you have to presss shift and the 2 button.  Is that right?

            I think that is what Pluto is saying, and I am saying.  You just need to type the @ and then the user ID.  The only reason I need to do a shift at all is if I'm on my laptop and the shift is because it is the shift part of the "2" key.
