To get notifications in your email and on your mobile device, you can “watch” pages, blog posts and spaces. Confluence will then send you a notification whenever anyone adds or updates content on that page or space. You get immediate emails for important notifications (like mentions and new pages), but when lots of changes are being made at the same time, you'll only receive a single email with all the changes (within a 10 minute window).
If an admin for your Confluence site has turned off email and push notifications, you won’t be able to override this choice. You’ll be informed of this if you try and turn on these notifications.
You can also subscribe to a daily email digest of all updates and other notifications of various updates, as described below.
Subscribing to email notifications
You can subscribe to be notified when:
A blog post is added or changed in a space
