Signal vs Noise in Atlassian Applications
03-29, 12:30–12:45 (US/Pacific), Room 2

We talk about the various types of email that a Jira and Confluence user receives, and what can be done to improve the quality and reduce the quantity of these notifications.

We discuss how many emails Jira and Confluence can send the average user. Then we look at the value that users get from these emails. Finally we talk about how we work with customers to improve the signal to noise ratio.
