Hei hei - can I create a notification rule to not send myself an email if I am editing a User story or defect? If yes, how?
Andy, it's because you have the checkbox for "Notify me about changes..." set. That overrides all other notification rules and spams you with every change about every defect that you own or where there's a task under the defect that you own. Just turn that checkbox off and your notification rule will be in effect.
If I am understanding correctly you want to only be notified of a change if any user other than yourself makes a change to an artifact. Although you cannot do this via notifications, our Watches functionality works this way by default. Here is a link to the help page.
Let me know if that helps,
You got my question correctly.
When I'm using the Watch for a User Story, I am getting notified by email of all changes happening to that User Story, made by all Project users including me. Is my setup wrong in any way?
Could it be that you have a notification that is enabled which is sending the email? I just tested in my subscription and when I watch an artifact that I own, I only get an email if someone other than myself makes a change. This is not the case for notifications however.
Specifically tried watch setup for few defects in my projects today. In the default setup, I'm still getting email from the watch only. Did you change any other settings for watch?
Not to contradict Sean but you actually can do this in the conditions for a Notification Rule. The condition you're looking for is:
Change Author != <select your own user name>
I use this in almost every notification rule that I write. Hope that helps.
Pretty sure he's right! That's a burn Sean!
EricNash - can you plz check the above screenshots? Is my setup wrong in any way? I'm still receiving notification with Change Author!= <me>
That worked like a charm! Thanks
