Does watching a calendar automatically enable email notifications?

Jae Jeon October 3, 2019


I'm currently watching a team calendar. I do not receive any email notifications when an event is created, including the ones that I create. My colleague is also experiencing the same issue. Only when the event is assigned to a specific person, the person receives an email notification. How can I enable all the watchers of the calendar to receive a notification when an event is created on the calendar?


Thank you,

From Atlassian's documentation:

Watching a calendar is a great way to stay up-to-date on changes made in the calendar, without necessarily adding it to your My Calendars page. When you watch a calendar, you'll be sent an email notification when any of the following events occur:

  • A new event is created
  • An existing event is edited
  • An event is deleted
  • The entire calendar is deleted

When you watch a Confluence space it includes watching all calendars in that space, so there's no need to manually watch calendars for your team or project.

It sounds like existing event is editing is working but none of the other items are working.   If you add something you would not be notified of that though.  Sounds like the notifications might be consistent across all users.  Have you tried watching the space to see if you then receive all notifications?  Have you checked your individual email notification to ensure that it is not preventing anything:
