Hi there,

I have a board with one other person and regularly need to tag only them on cards, when I type "@" the first suggested results is always my name?

Can I make that first result the other person or exclude my own name?

It's odd as I'm not sure why I would @ myself, and her name is alphabetically earlier than mine so even having the dropdown sort Alphabetically would help.

It's not a huge problem, but I regularly quickly hit Enter/Return too quickly after the dropdown shows and end up tagging myself.

Hi Steven,

Good day to you :)

When you're using Trello and attempt to tag someone using the "@" symbol, Trello's algorithm prioritizes the most recent or frequent interactions, which is why your name might appear first, even if it seems counterintuitive to tag yourself.

I'm afraid that there's no direct built-in feature to customize the order of mention suggestions or exclude your own name. I’ll pass your interest in this on to our team for consideration—Let me know if there's any additional info you'd like for me to send their way.

Do let me know if you've more questions. I'd be happy to help.

Cheers,
Vishaal S | The Trello Team

Thanks Vishaal, that makes sense.

If you could pass on that prioritizing "people other than myself" as a rule in this instance would make for a better user experience, that about covers it.

 

Cheers.
