Can I mention a username without notifying them?

Gaurav Mishra Apr 18, 2013

I am creating a page where I want to list some key people. I want to use their Confluence usernames rather than typing their name, but I don't want them to be notified.

How can I do that?

Hallo Gaurav

Here's something that works for me: Create the page with page restrictions, limiting viewing to yourself. Save the page with the page restrictions in place, then edit the page again. When you've finished adding the people's names, remove the page restrictions and save the page again. The people will never receive the @mention notification.

:)

Cheers, Sarah
