Hello @Suzannah_Ibrahim ,

The permission to use mentions relies upon four items:

  • Permission to the 'Browse Users' permission
  • Wiki Style Rendering for the affected field
  • Email visibility of users
  • The mentioned user does not have Browse Project permission

The main cause is a user not belonging to a group currently granted with 'Browse Users' permission.


Thank you @Ollie Guan ! Will get my manager to look into it. 

It works! Thanks Ollie Guan.
