When someone adds me as a reviewer to a new pull request to a repository that I am not watching, I get an unwanted email notification to review the PR. I already get the notification in Slack, so I would like to cancel the redundant email notification to limit noise.
I already tried playing with the settings on here: https://bitbucket.org/account/settings/notifications/
These are all ticked for me, because I want those notifications:
- Someone mentioning me
- My access to a repository or a workspace changing
- Occasional updates from Bitbucket and Atlassian
Once someone has added me and I receive the unwanted email, I can then go and unwatch the new PR on that screen, but then it is too late - I have already received the invitation.
Hi @JannieT ,
The reason why you are receiving these emails is because when you are added as a reviewer in a PR, you are also automatically added as a watcher.
I'm afraid that it is not possible to change this behavior at the moment.
Notifications can also be managed on a repository level, from the Source page > 3 dots at the top right corner > Manage notifications. However, even if you are not watching the repo, you will automatically be added as a watcher in PRs where you are added as a reviewer.
We have a feature request in our issue tracker to change this: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BCLOUD-17148
I would suggest to add your vote there (by selecting the Vote for this issue link) as the number of votes helps the development team and product managers better understand the demand for new features. You are more than welcome to leave any feedback, and you can also add yourself as a watcher (by selecting the Start watching this issue link) if you'd like to get notified via email on updates.
Implementation of new features is done as per our policy here https://confluence.atlassian.com/support/implementation-of-new-features-policy-201294576.html and any updates will be posted in the feature request.
Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.
