Teams 'Post a message (V3)' refer to a user with @

I'd like to be able to mention a user with 'Post a message (V3)' and tried using the @ sign to refer directly to a user using <at>username@domain.com</at> or @username@domain.com, however the user name is posted as text.

 

The <at>username@domain.com</at> works fine with 'Post a message as the Flow bot to a channel'.

 

Any way to make the @ reference work with 'Post a message (V3)'?

 

Thanks!

hi @eladsherf  unfortunally there are no way to do that with Post a message please see this post just with Post message as flow bot to a channel by doing exactly as you have <at>yourmail@hotmail.com</at>

Hi @ChristianAbata,

 

The challenge is that I'd like to refer to a user within a private channel and the Flow bot app is not available for private channels unfortunately, are you by any chance aware of any workaround?

 

Thanks for confirming it doesn't work.
