"Watch issue" checkbox under reply form (BB-7087)

Issue #5918 closed
Pieter De Decker created an issue

When I post a reply on an existing issue, I also want to watch that issue most of the time. But I always forget to watch the issue, so I miss out on important information. I think this problem could be solved by adding a "Watch this issue" checkbox underneath the reply form, preferably checked by default. That way I won't forget to watch issues I'm replying to.

    Hi Pieter,

    We're currently working on improving some related functionality. I've added this to the list of feature requests for that project.

    Cheers, Zach

    +1 for this feature - we regularly miss something by not watching issues. This happens in only 4 persons team ATM.. It should be similar to facebook notifications. IMHO these are all cases to turn on auto-watching:

    1. Someone adds issue assigned to me - I really care about it.
    2. Someone wants something from me by tagging me personally. Anything said after this tag may also refer to me.
    3. When I reply / comment in ticket it always interests me - I MUST know what happened next.

    The last one is the biggest problem for us.

    @zdavis when can we expect any update about this issue?

    Thanks in advance and cheers from Poland :)

    Current behavior appears to be that commenters automatically start watching threads they reply to, which covers my needs.
