Google Docs now warns you when mentioning a user who's out of office

Google Docs has made it easy for several people to collaborate on the same document. Since it's integrated with other G Suite products, the online productivity solution also lets users mention their co-workers or reply to their comments, allowing them to collaborate seamlessly.
