Is it possible to filter notifications to only see your @mentions?

I've been using Trello at my job for years. We have 6 members that are all active on our board daily, so it gets a little hectic trying to find where you were specifically mentioned. I tend to miss questions and comments because my mentions get pushed down with all the activity.

I would like to filter out the notifications so I only see where I've been mentioned. I've looked everywhere to see how this can be accomplished and have had no luck.

We are using the free version of Trello right now, but if this is a feature of  Busines Class Trello we would gladly upgrade.

Thanks in advance!

@rmurillo020 the best way to make notifications more usable is to unwatch any card you're added to. This reduces your total notifications to only when you're added to a card, mentioned in a comment or removed from a card.

You can use Butler to do this with a command:

when I am added to a card, unsubscribe from the card

and if you upgrade to Business Class you should have enough commands to do this (assuming you aren't added to hundreds of cards per month) but I'm unsure of how this will work across a team -- that is, the Butler power up runs as the user that enabled it, and you would have to enable it on every board.

I created Benko Board to do this; it does a bunch of other stuff too but if you only wanted to use it for this you would install it, disable the Benko Board INBOX feature so it won't import email, and then configure it to drop notifications so it doesn't create cards in your Benko Board.

I recently got it live in the G-Suite marketplace, but it's not verified by Google so you may get a big ugly error if you try to install it, I'm happy to jump on a call to discuss though :)
