There is no native functionality that will allow you to publicly @mention a group of people, but you can use Labels to create quasi distribution lists that can leveraged when you send a direct message or use the "Share" button on any piece of content. Labels are specific to each user, so there's no way to standardize Labels for everyone to use, but I actually like the flexibility to create my own Labels/distribution lists.
If you want to know how to create Labels, check out this article in Jive Documentation.
This is great! Thanks for the workaround. I'm going to play with this a bit but it might work just fine!
Hi Jill Ross,
Just came across this discussion as we are looking for a way to bulk @mention people. I didn't even know about labels so this is very helpful. However, it would be great if as an admin I could create labels which are shared with everyone e.g. If we used labels to group people by role, or team it would be good for these labels to also be accessible for everyone to use rather than everyone having to set up their own labels. As far as I can tell this is not possible but thought I'd check to see if you know of any way of sharing labels like this?
