Can the @ sign be used to create a distribution list?

I know in Trello you can use "@board" to send notifications to all persons on the board. Is there a way to use the "@" sign to create a smaller distribution list, such as something like "@Sales" or "@Production"?

In trello, you can only use @board, @card, or @membername. With butler, you can create rules which allows to convert  a mention like #sales to an email to


@Jimbo , for example, create this rule :

when the name of a card contains "#{?}", send an email notification to "{wildcard1}" with subject "Request an action" and message "See this card {cardlink}"


Just add mention #sales in the description to trigger the rule, and a email will be sended to

Thanks for the explanation and the example. I will play around with rules.
