    You have a class of 30 and there are three Tom's, how can we differentiate who we are talking to?

    August 2015 Update from Peyton Craighill Admin


    Workshopped this last week. Update:

    It makes sense to implement this once our messageable user framework is cleaned up in Conversations, as this will use the same search to find users to tag in a discussion, and the messageable user framework isn't nearly as efficient as it should be right now (see: long wait when searching for users to send a message in Conversations).

    We are planning on addressing messageable users in 2016, and this can be made a part of that effort, so I will archive this idea now.
