Indeed you are right, currently it is only possible to see who I am following, but I can't see who is following me (sorry for my mistake, I tried testing it by Unfollowing someone I knew that was also following me, and the person was still on the list, but it happens I forgot to click on "Update").

I've created two tickets in Atlassian's development issue tracker for each one of your requests:

Regarding seeing who is following me:

Regarding notifying when someone starts following me:

Feel free adding any comments to the issues above as well as voting on the issues to create their popularity and likelihood of being implemented in a future release.

For more information on how Atlassian implements new features and improvements please see the following document:

Ok. Btw any idea how long Atlassian will take to implement this?

Hi Umair,

This depends on a variety of factors, as described at there is not an ETA for this.


You can check who you are following and who are following you by clicking in your photo icon at the top bar of Atlassian Answers and going to Settings > Following. Also at Settings > Notification Settings you can manage the notifications you want to receive, however it seems there is no option to receive a notification when someone starts following you.

Please feel free to raise an improvement request referring to this at our development issue tracker at https://jira.atlassian.comor let me know if you would like me to do it.

Hi @Gustavao

The Settings > Following section only mentions this:

When someone you follow posts an answer, question, or comment, we'll send you an email notification.

You are not following any other users.

So there is no mention on anyone following us. Are you sure when people are following us it comes up here as well???

Yes go ahead with adding the notification option when some one follows. It would be an improvement.



I believe you are incorrect.

Some one just told me he followed me (I have coordinated this with him) however the Settings > Following section does not tell me I have a new follower.
