On our site, we populate the location field via SSO with the country where the member is based. I had a request this week from a moderator who wanted to alert members in Pakistan about a new resource published specific to Pakistan. He wanted to do this by mentioning all of them by name in a post.
I looked into it and found that I don’t know an easy way to do this via the UI. Location isn’t even provided in user exports which surprised me. Am I missing something?
Data explorer seems the low hanging fruit home for solving this problem. Has anyone created a data explorer query to search the user list by location and spit out a list of usernames who share that location?
A better solution for the longer term to this specific problem might be a new feature to be able to mention users by country somehow, e.g.
!pakistan or some such.
