What is a card watcher?
Watching cards allows you to receive notifications for any changes made on a certain card, even if you are not subscribed for 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 board of the development team, you can become a card watcher.
The notifications provide information about all card activities and updates.
How to add a watcher?
There are two options to add a watcher to a card: you can either add yourself or one of your team members as a watcher.
1. Add a watcher from the card context menu
Using this option you can add 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. Add a watcher from the card details
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 Attachmnets) and click on Add Watcher. Choose a watcher from the dropdown list with the board assignees.
If you want to remove a watcher from a card, use the same navigation to the Card details → click on the x-sign next to the watchers name → click on Update card.
Note: Users with administrator privileges can watch a card even if they are not assigned to the board where the card is located.
