What's the problem?
Confluence allows you to watch its pages and blog posts. Watching means that you get e-mail and Workbox notifications every time a page or a post is updated. You can start watching a page by choosing Watch from the Tools menu. Also, you automatically become a watcher once you edited a page.
This is a very useful feature that keeps you updated about any changes made in Confluence. Sometimes, however, these changes are insignificant. You can control whether or not to send a notification with the Notify Watchers option.
The problem is that you should always remember to uncheck Notify Watchers, if you think that the change you made is not worth your team's attention. And as you can guess, that happens quite often and results in annoying your colleagues with tons of spam that notifies them about a corrected typo or changed font size.
To avoid sending useless emails about irrelevant changes, you can use our extension No Email Storm. The extension adds the Save & Notify button that you will use for sending email notifications. If you don't want to send anything, click the good old Save button.
To use the No Email Storm plugin, you need to install Speakeasy first. The latest version can be downloaded from the Atlassian repository. If No Email Storm was installed before Speakeasy, you'll need to reinstall it. After that, you can enable the plugin for yourself. Alternatively, the Confluence admin can enable it globally (Extensions in the user menu). Please note that for security reasons Confluence admins can't enable extensions for themselves. However, this can be changed in Confluence Admin - Extensions.
