Now i got notifications for everything in Trello boards, someone created a new card, someone moves a card, even if im not on that card.

@Cristian_Beckerle Do you know if you are "watching" the boards in question. If so - watching a board leads to many more notifications. To check this, follow these steps:

  • In Trello, select the board.
  • Once on the board, click on "Show Menu" in the upper right corner.
    • Part1.png
  • Then click on "More".
    • Part2.png
  • On this menu, you can see if you are watching a board or not.
    • Part3.png
  • If you are, just click it to toggle off.

More information on notifications can be found here. I hope this helps!

Thanks Carrie, As far i can see im not watching those boards where i get notifications.

@Cristian_Beckerle you can also watch lists, and by default you will be set to watch cards whenever you add a comment -- if you uncheck the "Watch" checkbox once you won't have to do it again. If you're getting notified when someone creates a card, that means you're either watching a list or a board, though.

@Cristian_Beckerle Here's where you can find the Watching List setting (per @Iain Dooley's suggestion: 

  • Click the three dots on the top right side of the list
  • List actions will appear
  • Then uncheck the Watch option

Hello! I'm not watching any list neither. The next time i got a notification i will post a screenshot to see if wa can find the correct setting.
