How to tag a user in Prefect Slack notification?

Is there a way to mention/tag a user or group in Slack when sending a notification from Prefect Automation? I’m using <@U03MK7Z2ULQ> and <!subteam^S037DR39NGP> in the message body, but they just come as plain text. Looks like the message body is sanitized by Prefect. Does anyone have a similar issue or knows how to get it working?

I am having the same question.

Answered this in slack but updating for posterity:

You should be able to tag someone using the syntax "<@nameofperson>" in the body.

doesn’t work when getting the value as a parameter - {{ deployment.parameters.pagerduty_contact }}
