This is idea is a reply postI just made in a separate converation.
I would like to have the option of "pausing" all outbound notifications as I am drafting a new document.
My issue has caused a real problem of all of my co-workers that I've included in my document.
For the last few hours, I've been updating my meeting notes with all of the post-meeting action items and lessons learned that came from our discussion during the meeting today. Now I've come to find that over the course this time i've been editing, all of the 10+ or so people i've "invited", or @mentioned in the document, have been getting spammed with updated notifying them of my progress while drafting the paper.
Is it possible to place all notifications to my teammates on hold until I've completed/finalized my draft. Basically can I wait to "unleash" the notifications once I've reached a point where I am comfortable with the document?
The result of this is not helping my case for bringing people on to the idea of using Paper as a tool im my department. Nobody likes email notifications that they don't subscribe to intentionally. It would be much better if the notifications instead were only sent as pop-ups in the taskbar app. In fact, there has been a company wide effort to reduce the amount of email notifications we receive, and use tools that show notifications only when you want them. The result of people receiving numerous updates early on in the draft stage of the document causes people to open the document, see that the contents are incomplete, and return to what they were doing... and ignore any future updates from Paper as meaningless.
I love Paper and I woud appreciate any advice. I'm interested to hear any other perspective on my use-case.
