Within the last two days, an issue has occurred where every time I add a card, the watch icon appears automatically. How can I prevent this from happening?
This behavior occurs for every board I have, after clearing the browser cache, while using a different browser. When adding cards on my iPhone, the watch icon doesn't show, but when I view the newly created card in my browser, it does appear.
Note: I have checked settings for the lists and boards in questions. None of the lists or boards are set to 'watch'.
I have also seen some comments that you need to disable this in a comment, but I don't see the setting exposed at that level.
Hi @Jeff Fox I just found out that the Trello team made a temporary change as part of an experiment that includes the behavior you're seeing. There isn't currently a way to disable that, but I've passed your comments about the change along to the team. Sorry for the frustration in the meantime! Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help.
Have a great rest of your day.
Hi @Jeff Fox , the Trello Team received a lot of feedback about this autowatching feature that was recently enabled in Trello. As a result they are planning to disable the auto-watch feature on creation of new cards for now. However there is still an auto-watch enabled for any user that changes a due date on a card, that one will remain in effect for the time being. This change will take affect sometime between now and by end of day tomorrow (Thursday) for all Trello sites.
I hope this helps and have a great day,
