Hi, I want to send a message to a Slack channel and notify the members with an @here or @channel. Currently, the automation message sends a plain text version of @here or @channel. Is there a way to make this function as it does in Slack normally?

Did you try putting the @ mentions within brackets? For example, <@channel>?

Yes, I tried that and it did not work
