My watchlist and how to use it

So, you've drafted something in a sandbox and moved it into the mainspace. How do you know when other editors have a suggestion?

A personal watchlist is an easy way to keep track of all the pages to which you are contributing. You can use your watchlist to monitor article changes, conversations and editor collaboration.

When you add an article to your watchlist, you also watch the corresponding Talk page, so if someone responds to your article edits on the Talk page, it will show up on your watchlist.

You'll want to know when someone has offered advice on your article or edits, or you may see your work disappear! You can set your email preferences to receive email whenever pages on your watchlist are changed.

Watching a whole class

Instructors may find it useful to add all the articles their class is working on to their watchlists. This is especially helpful for tracking when other editors respond to student work on article Talk pages, so that you can participate in the discussion and/or encourage students to do so.

If your course is supported by the Wiki Education Foundation, you can also follow your student's contributions and interactions on the "Activity feed," accessible through the banner at the top of your course page.
