New Users automatically assigned as a watcher

Hi team.  

When i add a new user they automatically get assigned as a watcher to that space. is there anyway to turn this off as if i forget to do it....they can get 300-500 emails a day and it upsets new users

Hi @michael_bryce_concision_co_nz 

You can manage watchers within a space by clicking on the eye icon and choosing "Manage Watchers"

Globally, there isn't a method to turn off auto-watch at this stage - vote for this on CONFCLOUD-39970 

Users can choose to unwatch the space themselves - or they can try turning off Autowatch in their user settings (User Icon > Settings > Email > Edit > Remove check from Autowatch > Submit)


Thanks. the problem i have is that when i add a new user they are automatically set to watch a space and if i forget to remove them as a watcher i get complaints about them getting spammed with confluence emails.  Can you do a global setting anywhere
