You can use the Workaround here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-25367
Which is essentially to add this to Confluence Admin >> Custom HTML:
Try to add it to either "At end of the HEAD", or "At end of the BODY", as different versions of Confluence will treat JS differently
Here's a Chrome extension that individual users can add if they're using Chrome (this only works for the person who uses it, it's not universal across Confluence):
// @name disable_notify
// @namespace your_name
// @description Disables the notify watchers by default
// @include https://<your url here>/pages/editpage*
var e = document.getElementById("notifyWatchers");
e.checked = false;
Note that you have to use the URL of a page that appears when the page is in EDIT mode. Then you have to remove the page ID and replace everything after editpage with an asterisk.
Save the file as: <file name of your choice>.user.js file
When you've done that drag it into the Extensions area (under Tools).
I'm now trying to get a developer to write something that will post a warning when someone who is using this saves a page. The message will say something like: Do you want to notify anyone of your changes? If they select Yes, then the message will disappear and they user can select the Notify tick box.
