What to anticipate
- @channel notifies all members within the channel
- @here notifies only those members that are active within the channel
- If team members have paused their notifications, they won’t get notified, and this is also applied if these mentions are used in message threads
The best way to use @channel is to let everyone in the channel know about some important and relevant information. This mention triggers a notification for all members within the channel, regardless of their availability (active or away).
The @here should be used when you wish to notify only those team members that are actively working inside that particular channel and not the ones who’re not available at that very moment.
