As the last resort, I've been using the old Jira view to quickly tag a group of people in a Jira ticket. The old Jira view allowed for people to be tagged using prefix "~"
I have a macro on my local machine that saves this plain text
Is there a way to do this using the new Jira? The new Jira uses "@" as a prefix, but when I paste this snippet, no one actually gets tagged.
Welcome to Atlassian Community!
The new editor uses the Markdown editor where the prefix ~ will not work. It was created a bug for that but it was closed because it’s expected.
I tested here and using @ it won’t work if we save a snippet with a list of users and paste on a comment.
