What is this add-on for?
The app is installed, but you do not see the buttons. See how to enable the app for your account or for user groups.
Confluence sends email and Workbox notifications to page watchers about any changes made on these pages.
If you don't want to notify your colleagues about minor corrections, you should always remember to uncheck the Notify watchers option in Confluence editor.
The issue here is that a lot of people forget to do that, which results in tons of useless 'spamming' emails.
The No Email Storm app replaces the Notify watchers option with the Update & Notify button placed next to the native Update button. So the key question is only which of the two buttons to choose.
After mentioning users on Confluence pages and clicking the Save button the add-on also blocks email notifications sent to the mentioned users.
How to install?
- Install the No Email Storm extension in Confluence Admin > Manage Add-ons.
- Enable the extension for yourself in Profile - Settings.
Confluence administrators can enable the add-on for specific user groups. Navigate to Confluence Admin > Users & Security > No Email Storm.
The Confluence administrator should enter one or multiple user groups, which the add-on is enabled for.
Here the administrator can also select which button is prominent - either Update or Update & Notify.
- Configuration set by the administrator will override the settings defined by the user.
- Selection of the prominent button also affects the key combination 'Ctrl + S'. This key combination is automatically re-mapped to the prominent button.
Data Center Compatibility
Our No Email Storm has a Data Center compatible version.
If you have just upgraded your Confluence from Server to Data Center, you will see the compatibility issue message in the Manage apps section. The reason for the error message you see is caused by the fact that you have a Server version installed in your Confluence Data Center after upgrade. Please, uninstall the current app version and install the Data Center version. It's availble at the Atlassian Marketplace. Kindly notice that No Email Storm Data Center is a paid app. The pricing can be found here.
How to show the Update & Notify button only?
From No Email Storm 2.2.2 you can add the 'nes-notify' label to the page. This will hide the Update button, and the Update & Notify button will only remain.
