Modified name tags or tag aliases
When tagging people in posts/messages, it would be nice to be able to save a modified tag name for that person.
For instance, when I tag a team member in a conversation like "@Carver, Michael Julius Wayne Frederich", I can edit the tag by backspacing to be "@MIchael" because what kind of psycho addresses their work colleagues by their entire name in normal conversation?
It would be nice to be able to create 'alias tags' so you don't have to edit a tag every single time you use one.
Possibly a 'cursor-over' feature would reveal the system default tag name for that user, for someone who may not know the tagged user.
Tag auto-completion would first search your tag aliases before searching system names.
This is similar to this other highly voted idea
could also be a "link" option. I could type "Hey John" and link it to @jonathan_smith
