I'm a member of two boards with two different colleagues. I'm getting buried in emails like "7 new notifications on [board name]," for things like [user] moved the card to Waiting (which is a column). I do not need to know every time a colleague changes the status on every task. I only need to know when I am mentioned. How do I configure that?
Also, why isn't Trello listed as an option here to Tag?
Hi @Beth Holmes-Bozung you put this card under the Trello thread so it is automatically tagged with Trello. You get notified on boards you are watching, and when you are mentioned. If you only want to receive notifications when you are mentioned you should unwatch the cards you are getting all these notifications on.
This article gives additional information and will walk you through how to turn off email notifications, so you can just get notified on the app. That will help alleviate the overflowing inbox.
Let me know if this helps.
Hi Jodi -
I looked at the boards and cards from which I received notifications that the card was moved, and neither the board or the card was flagged as "watch" for me. I had been mentioned previously in the card, but not in this case. What am I missing?
Turning off all email notifications means I wouldn't get the ones I actually need to see, like when someone mentions me because they need an answer to keep the task moving.
Hi @Beth Holmes-Bozung I found a solution on how you can turn the moving cards off without missing a crucial update. Please see item two at the following link, it explains it really well:
Please let me know if that resolves the issue.
Hi @Beth Holmes-Bozung I know you mentioned you are not following cards, but could you possibly be following the board itself? Could you go to Show menu, watch and see if you are? There would also be an eye symbol on the horizontal line above your cards (title bar) on the right hand side. You may have already tried this but just in case I wanted to mention it to you.
Hello, how do I turn off auto-watch for all cards in my board? I am not watching the board, but don't want to manually unwatch every card as they are set to "watch" by default. Did Trello fix this yet? I just want email notifications for cards where I'm tagged or manually set to "watch"
If you had to thrive a new habit during a lockdown, what would it be? Trello
