Avoid following documents created from template

Helpful | Level 5

I've created a Dropbox Paper template for our team's weekly meetings. After each meeting, I create a new document from that template, and team members fill in topics for next week's agenda.

Everytime I do this, I am inundated with email notifications that people have made updates to the document. I do not need or want this.

I have ensured I am not "following" the template document, but the system seems to automatically make me "follow" the agenda. As I still do want to receive email notifications for the documents I actively set to "follow", my only option is to manually mark "unfollow" for each week's agenda.

This is really frustrating. How can I avoid following documents that I happen to create from a template (which I am not following)?

Hey there @cschoning
 
Currently, owners of Paper docs follow them by default, unless you select to unfollow. If you’d like to limit the email notifications you get regarding Paper docs, you can also change your notification settings as this article outlines. 
 
I understand that this may not be the ideal answer you were looking for, but I’d be more than happy to share this with our dev team for future consideration. 
 
In the meantime, I’ve also moved your post to the Share an idea section of the Community so as to keep track of your feedback. 
 
If you have any other thoughts for us or any other questions, please don’t hesitate to get back to us!
