Recently whenever I create a new card it automatically activates the watch function that I then have to manually deselect every time.
This is really annoying. How can I change it? Didn't find anything under Settings.
Hi @Paula Kwaschik, the Trello team made a temporary change as part of an experiment that includes the behavior you're seeing. There isn't currently a way to disable that, but I've passed your comments about the change along to the team. Sorry for the frustration in the meantime! Let us know if there's anything else I can do to help.
Have a great rest of your day.
Thanks for your quick reply! I would be really grateful if there's some kind of solution for those of us who don't love this new behaviour, like a possibility to disable it under settings.
Other than that I'm a great Trello fan and use it for my private life as well as work!
Sorry for the inconvenience here. We have received a lot of feedback about this autowatching feature that was recently enabled in Trello. As a result we 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.
I would expect this change to take affect sometime between now and by end of day tomorrow (Thursday) for all Trello sites.
I hope this helps.
Auto Watch is back - now it also turns on automatically when you add a comment to a card.
I've had Trello support confirm that this is supposed to happen, but they pointed out that there is a 'Watch' tick box underneath the comment box that you have to untick.
On my tests today I unticked it and the box appears to remain unticked on any additional changes to cards on the board. I hope it permanently stays unticked. Fingers crossed.
