@ symbol shows as 4 asterisks in report

I created a report that slacks my Daily to-do list to a channel.
I'd like to be able to tag by using the @ symbol followed by their user name.

Not everyone on my team uses Trello, assigning within isn't an option.

When I used @ 4 asteriks appear after:
Used @Name
Report @****name

Used \@johndoe\
Report: \*@**johndoe**\

Is there a way to display @Name ?

Hi @jdkshepard 

Welcome to the Community!

I have this issue as well, sort of, not the same thing, but a variation of!

This is what the card looks like on my first board:

But when it copies to the second board - it looks like this:

I have no username, no code, no nothing - there are spaces where there should be, but nothing I do removes the **** from showing up!

I'll raise it with the Community and see if it's a known bug that needs squishing!

@jdkshepard I think that this is because the usernames are bold formatted in Trello and this is some sort of markdown code. How are you doing the slacking? Can you share a screenshot?
