How can reviewers be allowed to @mention anyone on a proof?

If you want to let reviewers @mention all reviewers on the proof regardless of what stage they are in, the Ziflow admin must enable this setting in the "Settings" panel:

Allow to @mention all reviewers from all stages setting

Can I allow all contacts to be mentioned?

This feature is available only in the new Proof Viewer. Legacy Proof viewer doesn't support the possibility of using mentions on all contacts.

Please read more about this feature in the following article: Using @mentions when Commenting on Proof in Proof Viewer.
