Custom Field to Select From Member's List - Trello
In the "Activities" field, when you add a "Comment", there is an "at" symbol (@) that displays a list of members who belong to that board. You can then select one of them. Then if you do it again, multiple users will be added.
Is there a way to "Clone" the "Activities" field and rename it as a custom field? Or, How to add the @ ("at") symbol to a custom field so we can select from the board members list.

For example if I wanted to search in my personal board for any card where I have tagged my wife in a comment I could use:
If you want to find cards where multiple people are tagged, you just add more "comment:" parameters and they will be combined using "AND" logic (you can also negate by prefixing with a "-" minus sign) eg. I could look for cards where I have tagged my wife and she hasn't replied with:
