Email notification for Wiki posts?

Is there a way to activate email notifications for posts/changes to the Confluence wiki? We're not working full-time in Jira yet (we're just starting out) so we rely pretty heavily on email notifications to let us know of things requiring our attention.

Hi, you can watch Confluence pages/spaces. You will get notified if you are a watcher.

Refer to https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Watching+a+Page+or+Blog+Post for watching a page/blog.

Refer to https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Watching+a+Space on watching a space.

Hi,

If a user is set as a watcher for the particular page, they should be emailed when changes or updates are made to that page. Here is the documentation for managing watchers:

Thanks,

Do not forget, that you may watch a space also. You'll get emails about any activity on the space. Here is a link https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Watching+a+Space

Some hints

  • Managing watchers requires space admin rights, AFAIK
  • The community bubbles plugin from CustomWare helps to watch page trees as well mainly targetted at forums built inside Confluence using the {forum} macro
