How do I tag someone in a post?

Tagging is only available on Business and Enterprise plans and Company Event boards. Tagging can be enabled by the board creator, board admins, and org admins to allow contributors to notify a person about a post. 

Creating a Shout out or Company Event board? Great news! Tagging is automatically enabled on these boards (and can always be turned off from the board settings).
