Welcome to the #dominoforever Product Ideas Forum! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated by HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

Good question. Why not use comments with @mentions? Because there are numerous situations and use cases where it simply makes sense writing an email and then putting the link to dedicated files (or folders) into that mail.
Btw, if you follow that advice then you don't need that connections files integration in vop at all. But the use case exists and it should simply be extended so that it covers files where they should belong to in a collaborative environment - community files.
Why don’t you simply move to that file in Connections (navigation would be necessary for sharing anyway) and mention the receiver so that he gets a notification to look at that file? „Send less emails“ seems more important to me than „make email one more time more convenient“.
