More @mention possibilities
It would be nice to have more options for @mention as suggested in the above issue with @here for giving notification to everyone present (available status).
There are many other possibilities as well for example the opposite, something like @notHere (so they will not miss the message when the get back) or @onnline /@offline. You could also have @admin / @ owner and later @guests for external users.
Not sure if it's possible already or not but you could allow tagging a different team/channel so everyone that are in both gets a notification.
You could have an @all that when choosen gets expaned into @mentions for all users so that you can easily manually remove a couple.
You could allow the creation of custom mentions where you assign some people to a specific mention. For example this could be done with tags on the user profile that could allow grouping of users that do not need their own team.
I'm sure there are many more that that should be considered feel free to suggest them below.

along with notifying the intended person
@ mentions in chat rooms is a must please
The ability to tag / mention a person or group (e.g,. @jedmitten or @here) is only possible in Teams on my Windows chat client. In Chat groups, I am unable to use the @ syntax to get tagging / mentions much less auto-completed names (see images for evidence)
+1 - I was just adding a suggestion about that too.

I can do @user in channels, but I would also like to do @user in chat messages where there are multiple users in the chat.
