Specific user(s) are unable to mention any users using autocomplete in the editor using "@" as the trigger of this feature.


Using the insert menu by choosing Insert > User Mention then search for and select the user you want to mention, works without any issue


This is due to the "Disable Autocomplete" option in the user profile setting enabled.


In order to fix this issue, the affected user needs to follow the steps below to disable the "Disable Autocomplete" option.

  1. Access your "User Profile"
  2. Navigate to the "Setting" tab
  3. Click the "Editor" section on the left side of the menu
  4. Untick the "Disable Autocomplete" option
