Hi Salah,

While you can do this (see answer from Hemant), we've found a better solution for us is the free No Email Storm plugin. It changes the checkbox / Save button to "Save" and "Save and Notify" buttons. This makes it much clearer to users what action will occur when they click one of these buttons. You can then choose which button is more prominent (probably want it to be "Save").

I have a customer using this macro, and they do love it. Although most of the email traffic is caused by OCD users constantly saving pages after every edit rather than trust the draft mechanism ;-) I leave pages open for the entire editing session, which a) cuts down on the email traffic and b) still notifies watchers of edits.

 

Hello,

 

Yes actually I used another Plugin Save and Notify Button for Confluence

 and it works fine. Thank you all
