Is there a way to limit email notifications for watchers?

Is there a way to only notify watchers every couple hours? For example: If someone is editing a page and does 10 edits, I don't want watchers to get 10 emails because they saved it 10 different times. Or, is there a way to make it so that there is one notification per 24 hours without having to uncheck the notifiy watcher box?

Hi Kassidy,

You can uncheck the Notify watcher checkbox below the page edit as you can see in the screenshot below:

That will prevent watchers from receving notfication when you edit the page.

Hi Kassidy,


I can also use javascript to uncheck your notification box automatically. Put the code below in your Confluence Admin >> Custom HTML >> HEAD

<script type="text/javascript">
    AJS.toInit(function(){
          AJS.$('#notifyWatchers').attr('checked', false)
    });
</script>

Hope this helps!

Jing Hwa
