@mention does not work, but [~username] works in custom field

Our users like to use '@mentions a lot, but @ notation does not work in all custom fields. 

Custom fields user Wiki Style Renderer and [~mention] works ok, but is harder to use than @...  as need to remember username exactly correct. 


Is there way to get  '@ notation working in custom fields ?

Hi @Renni_Verho 

There is a suggestion for this requirement. Take a look at this and vote:

Yes it is a bit annoying and you will have to ask the users to use [~mention]. Probably add a description in the field to make user aware about this.

I hope it was helpful.



Thanks about info and link. 

Users are using [~mention] already and complaining about it. 

Ill write instructions to use add button it that helps - even they are too used to use @-notation.
