@everyone in Chat
Ability to notify everyone in a CHAT thread with the @everyone tag is needed.
Ha Nguyen Vu Minh commented
WOW, I love this feature very much. It helps me a lot when I supprt a large group chat when I need to mention all of them for a specific problem.
Simon Walker commented
WOW. I was searching for how to do this. I can't believe I found this thread and the request has been alive for years and this has still not been added.
MS Come on guys, add this very basic feature please.
Shawn Patrick commented
lol, reading this comment thread is all too familiar, and I wish you guys at MS would listen to your user community! While you are at it, make tags work the way everyone else in the universe uses them rather than the bizarre and useless feature that is there now. In that case @[team name] would make much more sense than ruining hashtags as everyone in the world uses them. I'm glad I am writing this for the other commenters, as I know they will at least read this.

Please do this.
This seems self-evident. My personal use case is an adhoc group chat (i.e. pull together 5-12 people that make a small v-team) and quickly alert them to something that everyone needs to know.
Yes, I can name the group chat (MyvTeam) but I can't @MyvTeam so I have to list out all 9 names of the people in the vteam.
Seems pretty straightforward as competing products offer the same and its actually useful.
If the "scary part" is an extreme "what if there's 200 people in the group" pick a strategy
- disallow for groups with more than 50 people (probably a different product's use case)
- make a slower guarantee on notification (i.e. queued/asynch notification).

Gosh been open since 2018 and no response from Microsoft? Please Microsoft this is a key feature that is missing in the teams chats

Would be in particlar usefull when posting in the chat of a recurring meeting where @channel or or @"Team Name" don't work.
Kevin Spakes commented
I agree. We use Teams at work and we have to either '@' everyone in the chat, or send an email.
No, we do not want to use a Team channel for our workflow. Too many things in too many places.
Please do this.
Agree, 20 people in a team. Chat used as an everyday means of Comms. Just need to tell whole team something is fixed. Need to be able to tag everyone. Don't want to have to create a post in a channel that they might not see.
Group chats are brilliant for quick comms but a lack of the @Team mention feature lets them down.
Dominic Jones commented
Wow - surely a 5 minute no-brainer
Francesco Pirillo commented
Wow, I can't believe such a useful feature as this has been open for so long.
This should be an easy win for you to implement, and a win for your users that would save a lot of (cumulative) time in their workdays!
Start listening to the UserVoice already!
Fabien Ducat commented
Would be so useful !!! Please consider it.
Keith Ramnanan commented
Oh come on, this can't be hard!!! Would be so useful! I'm resorting to emails to make sure people notice. Only alternative is typing EVERYONE's name! Ridiculous.
Dianne Libiternos commented
I think it's three (3) whole years since this thread was created and still no sign of an @everyone / @all or even @team in MS Teams CHAT.
Matt Allison commented
I know that @general exists but it doesn't work. "Hey @general, I would like..." is much harder than "Hey @everyone, I would like...".
