Description

For work I need the ability to highlight on a phrase vs a nickname for emergency situations. e.g. "stop all work"

In the notifications area if I put in what I need, surrounded by quotes, it does not highlight. e.g. [joey, rinchen, "stop all work"]

So you have configured highlight words but they do not highlight when the word is surrounded by other characters?

Single words continue to highlight correctly. A phrase in quotes such as "stop all work" will not trigger highlighting.

I think this is already supported if you use the regex syntax because it does not stop at spaces.... so try /stop all work/ instead of "stop all work"

Yay! using "/"s worked and it's case insensitive too which is great for me. Can you please add a snippet to the docs/faqs about this?
