What is the "Watching issues" function? | Backlog

With the 'Watching Issues' function, you can:

  • Quickly view the progress of the issues that are important to you.
  • Bookmark issues for easy retrieval.

You can watch any issues that you like. The function is especially useful for situations such as: ‘I’m not an assignee, but I’d like to know the progress of the issue’ or ‘It is important that I stay up-to-date with this issue.’

You can add a personal note to each watched issue as a reminder of why you added it to your watching issues list.
