quiet sync with calendar during meetings

Looking closer at this I see the answer was copied and pasted onto a bunch of topics that include the phrase "Do Not Disturb", and not all by the same poster. Apparently this answer was a canned response written by a product manager and given to the Customer Service team. I don't blame them, but it doesn't address the specific use case of this request. Sloppy work Microsoft.

yeah, the responder did not address the feature request. We want Outlook to silence all notifications using Android's Do Not Disturb feature based on busy calendar events.
My organization requires SD card encryption to sync to my phone through the native Android account system. my phone does not support this so I have to remove the SD card every night then trigger the sync manually to get the updates for my calendar. All of that just so I can use a Tasker profile to disable notifications during meetings.
If Outlook could do this automatically I would be thrilled! Why doesn't it?

This should not be closed. I want a Busy status in outlook calendar for an appointment to generate the Do Not Disturb feature of Android (silencing notifications, etc., except for Favorite contacts) for the Busy duration of the outlook calendar utem.

yeah I work at 2 am and go to bed by 8pm. Getting emails streaming in constantly while I'm working or trying to rest is super inconvenient. I've opted for the complete do not disturb option as it's the only one that will work for my life.

A while back, I requested a feature to set a Do Not Disturb feature. So Notifications can be turned off based on a schedule.
I'm glad to finally see a Do Not Disturb option. But...what a joke.
Why would the times be hard coded, not being changeable? I work 6am to 5pm 5 days a week. i would love to be able to shutoff the notifications when it fits my schedule, not justified by someone else.
I guess I'm back to turning notifications off all together. I would love to meet the team that said "Yep...8a-5p is all we are gonna give them". LOL. I would of busted out laughing if I was in that meeting. And being a software designer myself, a feature lock like that, is almost embarrassing.
Would be nice to not have the phone buzz my ear while I'm on the middle of a phone call. it's quite annoying that this isn't an optional feature.

I want the new Do Not Disturb setting to activate the phones Do Not Disturb setting for events set as Busy. This way you will not be interrupted by phone calls and/or text messages or other app notifications during a meeting. This was how Outlook on Windows phones worked many years ago and it was great!
