How to publish a new page and not notify watchers (option has disappeared)

My edit format has changed. I am no longer able to click "do not notify watchers".  It seems that option has disappeared. 

I don't need to notify everyone if I fix a typo.  Has someone found a solution?

There's obviously a need to be able to create pages without notifying watchers. How do we either 1) let the devs know we want this or 2) jump on the bandwagon of an already-existing request?



can someone please provide an update?

Hi @hr,

Welcome to Atlassian Community.

For a new page that has not yet been published yet you cannot choose the option to publish without notifying watchers. If you have already created the page and then edit it you should see this under the ellipsis:

I don't want to go to a sub-menu every time, I want to click the top-level publish button or an equivalent keyboard shortcut. Is this possible?

Ctrl+Shift+Enter then you have the notification check box.

Ctrl+enter pusblish with notifications

Ctrl+shift+enter pusblish with revision comment + checkbox notifications

but I can't find any shortcut to direclty publish without revision comment and without sending notification ? I think there's a missing shortcut there. Can't we imagine one like ctrl+alt+enter ? (dont know if we can inside of chrome)

I'm still having trouble trying to publish without notify watchers (when creating). It's annoying and people started complained to me about it.

Same problem here. Our new users have enough to do to get used to working in Confluence without having to think about selecting a menu and an option instead of just using the publish button. And all our other users get upset because they are receiving bucket loads full of email notifications no-one cares about. So they just all get deleted -  and you missed the important one because it was hidden in between all that spam!
