custom schedule for do not disturb
I'd like to be able to set my own schedule for do not disturb and not be limited by the current options
since I use Outlook for my work email, I don't need do not disturb for during work hours, but would like to have it for after work hours in the evening. the weekend setting is good, but not enough

Not everyone has weekends off, it would be helpful to add more flexibility to Do Not Disturb.
There is another post for this feature that is marked completed, but this feature has NOT been implemented.
This is a request for automatic DnD during AFTER HOURS (non-work hours on work days).
The only currently available options for automatic DnD are
* during events
* during work hours (great if you use Outlook for personal email but not work email)
* weekends (great if you mainly use Outlook for work and want your weekends free from work intrusion)
Many folks who use Outlook for work want their weekday evenings, overnight, and early mornings free from work intrusions as well. An option for setting automatic DnD "after hours" on weekdays would make it easier to concentrate on family for dinner, evenings, and have boundaries first thing in the morning.
Everybody has that colleague who either has a very different schedule or no boundaries between work and home life, and thinks it's appropriate to send work emails at midnight, or 6am. If you're not that no-boundaries colleague, it can be intrusive and problematic to have notifications for work emails up when you're trying to silence your wake up alarm, before you've had your coffee (or morning run, or whatever).
Also, the desktop and web versions allow users to set custom work hours. If the app won't allow that option it really should at least refer to those custom hours.
The do not disturb feature should have a scheduled option that takes into consideration the 1st day of the week that was set in the calendar settings. If my first day of the workweek is Sunday my weekend is Friday and Saturday. So both do not disturb scheduled options for weekdays and weekends should consider that.
Is mandatory for a good mailclient
Ability to add a schedule for notifications per mailbox on a schedule so I can eliminate my work emails but still get personal emails form personal account.
missing off-work weekdays schedule for "Do Not Disturb" settings.
Alternative would be allowing custom settings for Do Not Disturb.

It would be great to have an option such as disable notifications during out of work time / weekends /vacation

Inbox by Gmail had a great feature, the ability to schedule notifications per group. I disabled notifications for "others" but I wish I could get those at a programmed time. For exemple: once a day, 7pm.
There should be more functionality for setting up automatic do not disturb times.

currently there is the defaults and turning off notifications until the following day. it would be great to be able to set it for specific periods if you're on vacation for example.
Add the settings after working hour to the do not disturb status.
We all know how to engage manually this settings, we want it to be automatically engaged after the specified working hours
if i set my work days from Sunday, DND on work hours should work on sunday, but it does not. it starts to work only from monday
The custom schedule implementation in Microsoft Teams on Android is extremely flexible and meets my needs. This would work perfectly for me if those same settings were ported to Outlook.

user set up do not disturb

I see there are many options already for Do not disturb mode, but I do not see the times I want my work emails to be silent. So, a customized Do Not Disturb feature would be great.
Current option for workdays is to set DnD for daytime, but there is no option to automatically set it for evenings. This is a rather unusual design choice.

Plus outside normal work hours

give the detailed customization options for the do not disturb feature. many use or link their work emails or have specific events where they need to silence notifications. adding this feature will create an ease in scheduling around a work schedule.
