Besides having the ability to type in your own comments and tag your colleagues in the News Feeds, the challenge lies in getting your employees to know that they have been tagged. And in that way, Apptivo delivers you with a notification as a result of being tagged in news feed, letting know the respective employee in prompt.

There are three possible news feed tagging notifications:
