  2. In the rich-text editor, type the message, and then click Post.

    Once a message is added it appears above the text editor.

If the Watch integration is installed, when you post a message to an asset, Brightspot automatically adds you as a watcher for that asset—unless you manually removed yourself from the watch list.

Sending messages to specific users

You can mention another editor in your post by clicking Mention in the toolbar. If that editor configured delivery options for conversations, then Brightspot sends a notification to that editor. Referring to the following example, Joe Salisbury is mentioned in a conversation.
