add support for custom group @mentions in chat
Much like @everyone, there should be a way to define custom groups of users who can be mentioned at once by evoking e.g. @devteam, @admins etc. Groups may overlap (that is, a given user may be member in 0..* groups).
We have plans to add this.

It would be nice if this combined in with individual alerts for a keyword or #hashtag. I often have chats backgrounded and in campfire I set keywords to alert me so I could pop back into the chat and help out.

Hi, any news about this feature? would be great to have it!
Max Edmands commented
Please do this :) Maybe team names could be the names of other flows?
Brian Underwood commented
We have 3-4 teams and I keep wanting to be able to @mention at those teams. Is there an ETA?
Antonio Salazar Cardozo commented
Is this a feature you intend on adding soon (as in, is it fairly high on your list), or something we'll be waiting on a bit longer?

++++1 This would be very useful. I know you can do just this on the Yammer/Chatter style platforms. But I like the flow of Flowdock better so would find this feature very useful. Some of our users have asked for it a few times already.
Would be even better if it integrated with Google Groups and pulled the @---- names from there.

+3 for us.
Exactly what we'd need to boost cross team acceptance of flowdock as main communication tool!
Allen Smith commented
I agree with this as well. I have a team that sometimes gets subdivided on different projects and I would love to be able to not have to remember who is on which team and then to have to type their names out several times a day.
Nathan Kleyn commented
This would be insanely useful to us internally. We have a lot of different product teams who could benefit from this level of granularity.

We use Flowdock as the main channel of communication in our internationally distributed company and it would real win for us if we could address specific groups inside the organization with a single alias.
