Suppress email when Confluence Workbox is used


Is there a way to disable the email notification and only work with the eminent workbox in Confluence?

To me it seems like redundance and I work hard to minimize the email spamming to my users.

I have searched for this but couldn't find a way that do not disable the complete email function.

Any tips?

Could you clarify exactly the functionality you wish to disable? Is it the mail notification on mention? the share functionality?

Hi Tim,

I think mentions and watched pages should be possible to restrict to the workbox only. A Share should possibly generate an email.

I realize I haven't thought this through completely :-) but to be able to configure this globally for each notification event would be great and with the possibility for each user to tweak it based on their own needs.

Feature request, maybe?

Probably a feature request.
