Is there a gadget to view the comments that reference my username?

Is there a gadget to place on my dashboard that would show me all the comments that have my username referenced in them?

Often times comments can be missed if I don't see the email (and there are often too many JIRA emails).

Hi Danielle, unfortunately there's no such gadget available for JIRA Cloud, we even had this feature request raised to the Devs, but it was closed as Wont Fix:

Maybe you should try one of the alternatives suggested on it, like : "If you enter text ~ "@<enterusername>" in the Advanced Searching, it should give you what you need. Then add a Filter Results gadget with that filter on a dashboard."

I hope that helps!

Cheers, Rodrigo Silva
