Tag people on lists

Is there a way to tag someone in a list of trello?

In our team we use to have our own list in wich tasks are being stacked, and when someone finishes it, we move it to the next person in the pipeline to continue with the work. 

It would be awesome to be able to tag people in lists, so if theres anything added into one of the lists, the person in charge of that complete list, gets his notification.

While you can't assign other people to a list, in your scenario, each person themselves can use the "..." menu on the list they are in charge of, and choose the option to "Watch" the list. Then that user will get notifications when anything happens in that list, including when cards are added to that list.

You can also use the Butler Power-Up with rules like "when a card is moved into the 'Step 4' list, assign user @somebody to the card."


I knew there must be a way of doing it. The "watch" button will do the job.

Also, i'll try the Butler Power-up beacause it seems super powerfull for these kind of things.
