Receive notifications when a page changes

You can subscribe to receive email notifications when someone edits a page. You receive notifications about changes made by other people – not changes you make yourself.

In this article:

Subscribe to notifications

  1. Go the page that you want to receive notifications about.
  2. Select Notify in the utility links at the top of the screen.
  3. On the Notification Setup page, enter your email address:

    Notification setup

  4. Select when the page changes.
  5. Choose the appropriate radio button to receive a notification for only changes made to the page's text or any change made to the page. The second option includes changes to properties and permissions.
  6. For pages set to allow comments, choose whether or not you wish to receive notifications when someone adds a comment to this page or to this page and any sub-pages.
  7. Select Save notification. When the page changes, you receive an email notifying you of who made the change, and a link to compare previous and current versions of the page.

Note: you receive a maximum of one notification email per hour except for comments.

Tip: to track changes for a whole website as opposed to a single page, create a list of site changes and subscribe to the RSS feed for that list.

Change, suspend or stop notifications

  1. Select Notify in the utility links at the top of any page.
  2. On the Notification Setup screen, select View all your notifications.
  3. A list of your notifications appears. To unsubscribe from a notification permanently, select Delete in the Actions column. To change or suspend a notification, select Edit in the Actions column:

    List all notifications

  4. On the Notification Setup screen, update your preferences. To temporarily stop receiving emails, select Suspend notifications. You can enable notifications in the future.

    Suspend notifications

  5. Select Save notification.
  6. Select Done.
