How can I turn off my own activity alerts?

I recently became an administrator of a space that requires a LOT of clean up/editing/deleting/etc. My manager told me he received 28 emails based on my activity.

How can I turn this off without going to each user and telling them to unsubscribe? I don't want them to keep turning off alerts because eventually they will turn them all off.

  There is not a great answer for this.  Confluence sends lots of notifications by default since it based on transparency and collaboration.  Typically it is the user that manages their notifications:

When you do edits to the pages you can uncheck the box at the bottom that sends notifications for pages edits etc.  If you are the admin of the space you can manage watchers.  I would just records who is watching the space and remove them, make your changes and add them back.


Thanks for your reply. I did uncheck the notification box at the bottom when possible, but I did not notice this option on all pages... this is not available when creating a brand new page, correct?

I will try out the Manage Watchers option.

I appreciate the attitude towards transparency, but I would rather not clog up management's inbox with these type of tasks, or have them unsubscribe and then later ask them to re-subscribe.

  You are correct if you are creating or deleting pages then there is no way to turn off notifications for individuals watching the site.  If you adjust who is watching the space it should help.
