please vote for this bug (perhaps you did not realize it - but it can hurt you! ;-)
The above bug has been fixed in 4.3! Thanks atlassian - well done.
Unfortunately now there is the following bug left:
=> This is annoying too, as every NEW mention should create an email-notification.
Without this, you can't organize/plan/etc. things in simple confluence tables. It will happen often that more than one mention will happen in an "organisational page".
Hope this will be fixed soon, too!
Sorry being "hard", but this is a showstopper!
In short: If you add a @username - mention somewhere in a page or in a comment, confluence will NOT send a notification e-mail to the user if it was added during a PAGE EDIT.
(notification is only send during a page or comment CREATION)
In 4.3 atlassian is even more pushing the @User mention functionality, so more Users will rely on it.
But this behaviour is absolutely UNEXPECTED!
We had already big trouble in our company, because the boss was sure that the collegue would be IMMEDIATELY notified and it was not the case!!!
Thanks for fixing this ASAP!
Make your great software even fantastic!
It should not be complicated to fix this. Without it we can't use the mention functionality, because users will forget about this big limitation and we will got even more problems ;-(
