Issue notifications are typically sent to the assignee and other members who are listed in the “Notify comment to:” field.
But if you are not an assignee, you can still opt to receive notifications by using the “Watch” function.
With “Watch” function, you can:
- Bookmark issues for easy retrieval.
- Get notified whenever any changes or updates are being made on the issue.
- Access the issue easily and view its progress.
Overall, it works like a bookmark function where you can watch issues important to you and retrieve them easily through your watch list, and stay up-to-date on their progress.
How to Bookmark Issues
To watch issue, click on the “Watch” icon on the issue page.
The “Watch” icon will transform colour (based on your project theme) after you click on it. To unwatch it, simply click “Unwatch” again.
Whenever your watched issues have been updated, a small green dot will be displayed next to the “👁" icon.
To access all your watched issues, simply click the “👁" icon (Watch) on the global navigation bar. A red dot beside the issue icon means that there’s an update to your watched issue and it has not been viewed yet. Once you have clicked and viewed the watched issue, the red dot will disappear.
You can find “Add a note” on your watched issue listing. This works as a personal note or reminder to each of your watched issues, and it is not visible to others.
Happy Weekend! 🍻
