  1. Hello, Paul Watson [Atlassian]


    I've been watching this Crowd space for monitoring the documents update.

    And I've got over 1000 notification email today because of you.

    My email account was blocked almost 6 hour and I've also spent a lot of time on deleting all of them.


    I don't know what you did today but please don't make this happen again.


    With Regards,


    1. Hi Luke.

      We're making some edits at the moment to prepare for a new release. Some of them are bulk edits, and those are going to result in notifications for anyone who's watching the whole CROWD space (I got them too). Apologies for the inconvenience, but it's quite possible this will happen again, unfortunately. You might want to set up a filter so those emails go into a separate folder, or (perhaps temporarily?) disable your notifications for the whole space.

      1. Hi Jeseph,


        Thansk for your reply.

        But there's difficulties. Email filtering is already applied in my account but problem is that bulk email notification block the mail account because the server regards it as spam attack.


        Temproal disabling space watch is also difficult to recoginize when to happen in advance.


        I understand that the Confluence already has the function not to notify when editing pages.

        So, I think you can use this function when bulk editing.

        If the function does not support for bulk editing, I think you guys can add this function when bulk edit.


        I hope you can understand this situation.


        With Regards,

    2. Apologies for the inconvenience Luke. As Joseph has explained, bulk updates are not something we do frequently, or regularly, as you will have noticed. Nevertheless, bulk edits are sometimes the best approach. I'll investigate blocking of notifications for this process.
