The comment should automatically allow user tagging like @UserName. Currently, if the user has a name like Kangkan, @Kangkan seems to work. But in case the user is having name like FirstName LastName, tagging like @FirstNameLastName seems to be not working. Auto suggestion after keying in @ in the comment field will greatly help collaboration.

Note that you can always tag by user ID. For instance, if I hover over your name, I see from the link that your user name is kangkan. Yours isn't a good example since your user ID is also your first name. But my user ID is bkchulin, so @bkchulin would work for me.

@bkchulin: You are right. But that seemingly so awkward. I do not feel that one user should call the other user by the userid.

@bkchulin @Kangkan @griffisp Hovering over user's name didn't bring up their id for me, please help. Thanks.

@bkchulin Ahh...I thought it would be like the same hover over to CLM products. :) Thanks.

I'll put it on the list of enhancement requests. Right now it's done based on the username, not the user's real name.
