Can I add @mention to a team area or team mailbox in a work item comment?

Hi,


We often have comments that are not aimed at a single user, but at a team. Is there some way to use @mention to address the whole team, without having to @mention every user in the team? Perhaps using Team Areas or something?

As far as I know, @mention can only be used to mention a specific user, not a group.

If you try it Geoff, it does not work.....

So we would need to add a 'fake' user (with a distribution group mail address) just to be able to do this? Do you happen to know if there is an enhancement request for this?
