Is it possible to create a @mention that address multiple persons?

If you, for example, have a group of team members that are javascript gurus and you would like to get a reply quickly, it would be great to be able to @mention them by writing @javascript rather than @jane, @bob, @karen. Jane, Bob and Karen belong to @javascript in addition to their own @mention tags.

We use an @all for specific rooms within HipChat. 

The best way is to create a room for your java gurus and use the @all mention.


Hope this helps smile
