Can someone search and add themselves silently to a Topic ?

I know that i can manually add people to the topics that i have created, but if I want to add myself to a topic that is created by someone else, ca I do that silently? I wouldn't want the owner or the other people in the topic to be notified.

Hi Aaron,

That is an interesting scenario. I am afraid there is no stealth function, so if you add yourself to a public Topic, everyone watching the Topic will see that you are watching it too. Topics can fucntion as group workspaces, so the team always knows who is in the Topic/available/active/passive.

However, the watchers of a Topic will not get notified that you have started watching the Topic, if that was your concern.
Hope this helps :)
