1. What is a card watcher?
Watching cards allows users to receive notifications for any changes that have been made on a certain card, even if you are not subscribed to get notifications from the board where the card is located. For example, if you are part of the sales team, but you would like to be updated on the status of a feature development task on the development team board, you can become a Card watcher.
The notifications provide information about all card activities and updates.
2. How to add a card watcher?
There are two options to add a card watcher: you can either add yourself or one of your team members as a watcher.
2.1 Add a watcher from the card Context menu.
Using this option you can add only yourself as a watcher to a card.
Open the Context menu of the card you would like to watch → click on Watch.
Note: If you want to stop watching a card, use the same navigation and click on Stop Watching at the same position.
2.2. Add a watcher from the card details tab.
Using this option, you can add as a watcher any user assigned to the board, where this card is located.
Open the card -> go to the field Card Watchers (below Attachments) -> click on Add Watcher. Choose a watcher from the dropdown list with the name of all board assignees.
If you want to remove a watcher from a card, use the same navigation → click on the x-button next to the Watcher's name and click on Update card to save the changes.
Note: Users with administrator privileges can watch a card even if they are not assigned to the board where the given card is located.
