Hi @Amy Zheng , welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Unfortunately, that's not possible. It requires a manual action each time, even with a keyboard shortcut.

I guess that's how Atlassian intended the concept of space watchers.

However, I would not recommend people to watch an entire space as they will receive way too many notifications for each newly created page or edit of an existing page (where people don't think about disabling notifications).

Hi @Amy Zheng ,

yes there is no option to set this as the default option. There is a existing feature request for this. You might want vote for the same , which will help development team to prioritise issue's. 

 

Thanks,

There is, actually, a popular app that adresses this problem: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/42684/no-email-storm?hosting=datacenter&tab=overview

Unfortunately, it looks it is not available for cloud, your deployment type. But it may be worth contacting the vendor.
