A highly requested feature for sure, Role Mentions will be making their way into the next Major Update of SnailBot. Previously, there was no way of automatically notifying users of when news was posted. With this new feature, that will now be possible.

During the Guided Feed Setup you will be prompted to either do mentions or not. If you @ a role, SnailBot will automatically ping the role you gave when news is posted. If you enter “no”, then there will be no role mention when news is posted.

Example of the option to opt in or out of Role Mentions

After this is setup, roles will be mentioned whenever news is posted. (See below)

As this feature is conveniently placed inside the Guided Feed Setup, which we talked about yesterday, this should be a seamless process that will be sure to enhance the customization of the news feed.

    I bet you didn’t know SnailBot had a real name. The fact is, neither did we.
