Disable "your team is working on these pages--join the conversation" emails

rafir March 6, 2024

Hi,

 

I can't seem to find a way to disable these emails in Confluence Cloud.

Furthermore, it's sharing changes from Spaces that are off-limit and exposing sensitive information.

Please advise,

Rafi.

@Marc Koppelaar, I believe that @rafir is referring to the Subscribe to > Recommended Updates feature mentioned in this post: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/Turn-Off-Confluence-Recommended-Updates-beta/qaq-p/2615118#M293894 

I still do not see this in my instance, so I don't know if it is still rolling out or maybe it's not available in the free plan.

I do find it disturbing that people are getting emails about changes to pages that they don't have access to.

Yes, this is what I'm suspecting that happened.

Hi @rafir 

I think this is related to the email settings per user and not a global setting. You can only disable mail completely on global level.

You could reach Atlassian Support on the topic.

The problem is that email notifications (for watched pages) are useful but this new beta feature exposes information it shouldn't. This is something that was recently enabled and I can't ask all my users to disable it manually.

Hi @rafir 

What is the beta feature you enabled?

rafir March 6, 2024

I'm assuming it's a beta feature because I saw several people complaining about it.

I haven't enabled anything.
