currently, when we have a new person joining our company, and we accordingly set up a new confluence account for this user, the user is automatically added as a watcher to our confluence space.
This means that a new employee is bombarded with mails regarding any changes to any page within this space.
I know we can ask each user to use the "Stop Watching" functionality by going to "Watches" in their profile settings.
Is there, however, a way for us to change the default "watches" of any and all new users we create? That would be a lot more practical if we could simply control the watches for new users on an admin-level.
Hi @Chris Fortmueller ,
as far as I know it is not possible to turn this off globally on a Confluence Cloud site. However there is a new feature request being tracked here : https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-39970
Another solution would be to remove new users from the watchers with the Confluence API : https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/confluence/rest/api-group-content-watches/#api-wiki-rest-api-content-id-notification-created-get
Let me know if this helps,
