This started happening earlier in the week, but whenever I create a new card now it has eyeball added by default, which is the "watch" action for getting notifications. I do not use notifications and I do not like the eyeball symbol taking up extra space in my lists.
I just cannot figure out how to disable this. Anyone know how to get rid of this?
Hi @Woo Kim , 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 by end of today (Thursday).
We are hearing from users that it has been resolved for them.
I hope this helps and have a great day,
@Jodi LeBlanc Is there any plans to change the autowatch for changing cards with a due date, or making it as a setting to disable? I am using Trello for individual project management, I really don't need the watch feature at all and when autowatch was implemented it really started clogging up my inbox.
Hi @Daniel Mack I am not aware of any plans to change the autowatch for changing cards with due dates at this time, however I know that the Trello Team is monitoring the community threads for user experience. You may also wish to contact Trello support directly to explain the impact this change is having on you.

Thanks so much,
I am personally anticipating the day that autowatch is turned off alltogether- I absolutely despise the icon and my board is just for me, so I'm always watching every card. It only makes me frustrated, and it's one of the only things that doesn't align with the simplicity that trello promotes itself for.
