        Currently VSTS does already send TFS alerts for @ mentions in the comments field. Haven't yet tested on-premise TFS or other field types though.

        This should be triggered of an @user reference in any of the free-text style fields (Description, Acceptance Criteria, Comments).

        Seconded. Please ensure that the subject of the email identifies the branch to which it pertains.
