Change notification settings for Draft Pull Requests

I would like to only trigger notifications on a Pull Request when it has been marked as “Ready for Review.” Prior to that, I don’t think all watchers on a repository need to be notified that a Draft PR is open. Is this option configurable?


Hi @pearsonhenri

Thank you for being here! Currently, if you are signed up for email notifications for activities involving pull requests, that does include draft pull requests as well.

While GitHub does not currently feature granular configuration of notifications for the different types of PRs, I can confirm that I have passed this over to the product team to look into and consider.

Since this is a fairly new feature we are always grateful for feedback, and although I don’t have an ETA, rest assured your feedback is in safe hands!

All the best,


Thanks for the thoughtful reply Andrea! Would love to see that feature hit production someday :)
