How to limit notifications to only items I'm tagged in (or intentionally watching)

Hoping someone can help me here.  I am managing several different boards and several different people. I am trying to avoid getting any notifications (email or in the Notification list) unless I am tagged or intentionally watching or subscribed to a list or card.

It seems my email options are hourly or nothing at all. And it seems there is no way to stopping filling up my notification list for every activity other people are doing (ie, moving cards, having conversations, etc.)

Please advise, thank you!!

Hi Tom,

It sounds like you might be watching the board. When this is the case you receive notifications for almost all events that happen on the board. You can deactivate this by going to "Show Menu > More > Watch". When you aren't watching a board you'll only receive notifications when you're @mentioned or you're a member of the card. There's some more information about what notifications you'll receive here:




Thanks Ryan, that was my guess as well but I can definitely confirm I am not watching any of the boards. I have looked at each and every setting that I am aware of pertaining to subscribing, watching, etc. Could it possibly be because I am the creator of the boards or it’s part of an organization that I created? Are there any other levels of notification?

 Again, my goal is to not receive any notifications unless I am tagged.
