How to prevent notification going to every Confluence user in my company when I edit a document? I am the admin for confluence in my company.

Every time I modify a document or add a document, notification goes to every confluence member in my company.

Is there a way to stop this spamming?

To add to Steven, since it appears that you are using cloud, deselect Notify watchers at the bottom of the page when in edit mode, and it will stay that way, not notifying anyone.

Sorry Milo, I think YOU'RE right. I converted your comment to an Answer. My suggestion is too heavy handed for a simple situation like this.

The reason they are notified is because someone is editing the page and selecting Notify Users, and they are watching the page or space. Whoever is editing the page should be mindful of their notifications. If they don't want to be watching the page, then they can remove their watch or a page editor can remove it for them.

Users get notified in Confluence when they are Watching the content. People watch content by choice or by contributing to content.

Please read up on the documentation – Manage Watchers on Confluence Cloud

To remove space watchers,

  1. Go to the page or blog post for which you want to manage the watchers
  2. Choose Watch > Manage Watchers
    The left-hand column of the 'Manage Watchers' dialog shows the users watching the page or blog post. The right-hand column shows the users watching the space.
  3. Remove an existing page, post, or space watcher – choose the trash icon next to their name

 

Hi Suneel, 

maybe you take a look at this great plugin - it's for free and we're using it.

Edit: Sorry, no cloud version.

With No-Email-Storm you decide on pagedit if you want to save only or save and notify.

Hope this helps. 
Cheers,
Mario
