Phab users "submit" review feedback functionality in Bitbucket?

We have users on Phabricator who are being migrated over to Bitbucket. 

They have come to prefer the following behavior: 

The engineer who created a pull request would not be notified of any review feedback until the reviewer performs "submit" or "publish".  This allows the reviewer the time to write and revise their feedback as they read the code and begin to understand the entirety of the change set.  

In the Bitbucket world, the reviewer's feedback gets sent (by default) as soon as he or she hits "Comment" the change set/pull request creator gets notified.  

Is it possible, via plugin or settings change, to get Bitbucket to hold off on the notification bit until the reviewer is ready?

Hi Sean, are you on server or cloud?

In Cloud, Bitbucket assumes you want to receive notifications about every action occurring in your pull request, so by default, Bitbucket notifies you when another user updates one of your pull requests. They can "unwatch" the pull request, but then they won't get notifications from it, they'll need to go and check manually.

In Server, these notifications are batched so you can specify when you'd like to receive them, you can learn more at Bitbucket Server notifications.

I've also tried finding some plugins that could add this feature you're looking for, but with no luck so far. You can go to the Marketplace and see if there's something that would suit you.

Hope that helps!
