How we built this app
My Forums - A slice that restricts the forums that a user can see (i.e., forums for everyone and forums they have been added to). The message threads are organized by last comment date. --- @Mentions - A virtual column that uses the EXTRACTMENTIONS() function to create a list of any text that begins with "@". When this happens it triggers an automation that sends an email to the mentioned users. --- Private Message Forums - Select users from an Enumlist that references the Users table.
