Notification Question

Does anyone know how to limit notifications on Trello? I am getting notifications every time someone edits or creates on Trello. But I only want to be notified when I'm mentioned/tagged.

Hi @Delaney_Baie_Pridham if you are a member of a card or you are watching a card you would get notifications related to that card, or if someone @ mentions you or creates an @ board mention. 

This article gives a lot of great information so that you can tailor your notifications:

Let me know if this helps.


@Jodi LeBlanc Even when Im not a member of the card or am not watching the card or am not "@" mentioned, I am getting notifications. 

Hi @Delaney_Baie_Pridham it may be worth checking your notification email frequency settings on Trello as you may be ticked as "Instantly" receive notifications? 

Let me know if this helps as there's more options we can explore.

All the best,

@Delaney_Baie_Pridham every time you comment on a card, there is a little checkbox, checked by default until you uncheck it (you only need to do this once) that watches the card. This is typically how people end up watching cards when they didn't intend to.

You can also watch lists, and boards. That's how you get notified in Trello, watching stuff. When you get added to a card as a member, you automatically watch it, too.

My integration BenkoBoard automatically unwatches any card you're added to so you only get notified about being added to a card, mentioned in a comment, and removed from a card, and all those notifications are aggregated in a single board:
