Order user mention autocomplete dropdown by participants
Currently, the order of the user mention autocomplete dropdown
@ is not completely clear. It seems to be ordered by participants… Also, when filtering, other users appear before the participants.
Take this example:
I want to mention
Simon Knox @psimyn, but when I type simon, another “Simon” appears first:
Simon Knox @psimyn should appear first because he has participated and it's more likely that I want to mention him than any other “Simon”.
Also, that combination of characters (simon) is not highlighted in the users’ names.
- Order the dropdown list, even when searching, with the following order:
- Highlight the search words in the users’ full name
Putting participants first allows users to quickly pick the most likely choices, the people that have participated in the issue or merge request.
