Feature Request: Remove Confirmations

OK,

 

So the current mechanism for an update request is that an update is sent to a user to update a row/cells.  This works great, and observes the locks and permissions correctly.

Problem is, after they update the sheet, they then get another email saying that they just updated the sheet.  So for only one data transaction on the sheet, the user gets TWO emails.

 

Would be nice to be able to turn off at the account level, or to include a checkbox on the response form that lets the user request an update if they want. (default to "no").

 

Thanks,

Brad

    Add to this, as the admin I also get a confirmation each time a user has responded to an update confirmation.  So, now for that one transaction there are 3 emails.  I have set up a filter on my inbox to route all the confirmations to a folder I don't need to check often, but I'd rather just not have the confirmations at all.

     

    I have the choice to select how often I receive updates when a sheet is changed, why not for these too?

    I changed my mind on this one.  Rather than remove confirmations, let's make them require approval.  This has been updated in another thread, I just don't want you guys to keep this one live when the need has changed.
