XF 1.3 @ tagging users

Can someone please tell me where I found out how to do this?

I cannot find it in the manual, yet I noticed somewhere it should be possible to type @ followed by the user's name and they will get an alert.

EDIT: Sorry, I meant to say email alert. They get the forum alert.

However this is not happening on my forum, what am I doing wrong? is there an option somewhere?

(I have searched the xenforo manual for tagging and there seems to be nothing there)

It's a permission.
Ensure you have it set for the user group(s), as well as the maximum number of members who can be tagged.

One more thing re: tagging users, there are no alerts if the tag is after the message is posted, as an edit.

Is that expected?
