@Robinson G the issue here is that when you're added to a card, set a due date on a card or add a comment to a card, you then "watch" that card by default.
Whenever you are watching something (card, list, board) you get notified about absolutely everything that happens, which makes Trello's notifications more or less unusable IMHO.
The comment thing is easy: when you add a comment to a card, uncheck the "watch" checkbox, you only have to do this once then it's remembered for your account on all devices.
The only way to automatically unwatch any card you're added to is via the API, which is precisely what my product BenkoBoard does (for this very reason):
When you're added to a card, BenkoBoard unwatches the card and adds a copy to a central "Inbox" list on your board. This means you only get notified about being added to a card, mentioned in a comment, and removed from a card, which is a much more manageable number of notifications.
It also creates a linked card in your Inbox list when you're mentioned in a comment, so that you can easily prioritise replies to comments as tasks, and lets you use Trello as a Gmail client.
@Iain Dooley The link you've provided has helped me figure out what I'm watching. I've figured out I'm watching a board. Now, when I stop watching the board will I still be able to get notifications on the actions below?
And at any time, you’ll get notifications when…
I completely agree. My team heavily relies on Trello and I am swamped with notifications about card moves, due date changes and archived cards.
They @ me at stuff and I have no way to see it in the 50 dummy notifications I can get every couple of days. Having no way of configuring your notification settings is awful UX.
@milynnus I've already tried that one but the app doesn't have the option to mark the categories you want to be notified on. It only has the notifications, sound and vibrate toggle for turning on and off as seen in the screenshot above. Don't have any idea of what to do next.
