'Watch' button immediately activated when adding a date

recv Mackay April 10, 2019

I'm aware this was discussed and 'fixed' back in December last year but it's happened again today.

Since this morning, as soon as I add a date to a card the 'Watch' button is immediately activated. Yesterday it was not happening.

How do I stop it?

@recv Mackay Yep this is apparently a conscious decision. It's an experiment that some users are exposed to. A totally appalling decision if you ask me. Please send your feedback to so they don't think it's a good idea and roll it out to the rest of us! I'll also bring this post to the attention of the Atlassian team on here. Thanks

There has been a further change overnight.

This morning I find that now when I go to set the date I get a 'set reminder' prompt where you can tell it day before, hour before etc

Trouble is, it seems to always default to 'day before'.

This is awful.


PLEASE have it default to whatever I set it to last time.

I want it to remind me at the time it's due, and I don't want to have to select that every.single.time.
