make Do Not Disturb activate the phones Do Not Disturb setting.
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!
Thank you all for your feedback and patience while we worked on this great feature.
You can now temporarily turn off your email notifications using the new Do not Disturb feature of the app. To do so simply tap on the 3 horizontal lines on the top left corner> Next tap on the bell icon next to the email address displayed or go to the “All Accounts” tab to set up do not disturb for all accounts connected to the app > Next choose the timed or scheduled option that best suits your needs.
If you have any questions or need assistance locating this feature please contact our in-app support team by going to Settings>Help & Feedback> Contact Support.
All the best
The Outlook Mobile Team
P.S. Please use the Help Section of the app for any questions, we are unable to see replies to this address.

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.
