Subscribe to email notifications

Watch pages, blog posts, and spaces, and Confluence will notify you via email whenever a teammate adds or updates content on that page or space. Notification emails are immediate, but changes within a 10-minute window will be batched into a single email in order to reduce inbox clutter.

You can also subscribe to daily and weekly Confluence updates and recommendations, described below.

If your Confluence administrator 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 to turn on these notifications.

Email notifications

Elect to be notified when:

  • Content you’re watching is changed

  • A blog post is added or changed in a space

  • When you complete actions, like commenting, editing, or creating, within Confluence

Subscribe to:

  • A daily digest of all updates in all spaces that you have permission to view

  • A weekly list of recommended content that’s relevant to your spaces

Regarding weekly recommendation emails: All users (including guests) will only be recommended content they have permission to view.
