Do not disturb
Be able to set times to not receive email notifications. I have a boss who works in the middle of the night and sends emails. My phone is set to do not disturb so I do not hear alerts but I see the banner preview of the message and it makes me look at them and then I cannot sleep.

Please put an option on every mail the sender allows me to unsubscribe in case of annoyance from

Please, PLEASE do this. I need some windows of quiet time!

It would be good to set up do not disturb periods, eg weekdays 7pm-7am and weekends all day (or as per user wish). To be able to do this by account would be good, ie have a different setting per account. This would enable silencing work email/calendar out of hours and personal in work hours as appropriate. A good example of this is in Slack.

Would be great if you could tell outlook when to give you push notifications so, for example, you could set it so you only receive them during working hours on weekdays and mute over the holidays/when out of office. Push notifications are really useful but can be distracting when not at work!

On top of this, I would like to be able to 'mute' some of my e-mail accounts. I work part-time, which means I don't want to see e-mails to my work e-mail when I'm out of the office. Currently, I can't prevent this, since all of my e-mail accounts are merged in my home page.
I don’t want my emails to notify when I’m at work as I’m using my laptop as they are duplicated. Ability to customise days and time of dnd will be extremely helpful.

I would be nice to be able to turn an account off and on. For example, going on vacation.

For work/life balance allow ability to turn off Outlook notifications during select hours. For example, notifications turn off motivations after 5pm until 8am.

It was always a great feature on the Nokia Symbian phones to select the days and timespan you wanted to get email notifications. Configured it so the Nokia synchronized its mail in the morning using WiFi just before traveling to work and stopped syncing in the evening and night. Most US (technology) newsletters arrive in the inbox at night in the EU.
It is essential that for some time of the day we need to switch off emails, I remember having this feature in Symbian phones.

This is what I got when I contacted the support regarding why the feature was added for android but not iOS. Seems like yet another default answer. Pretty stupid. We can make this app, but yeah we can’t figure out how to stop notification at certain times...
“Thank you for contacting Outlook App Support !!✨ 😊 ✨
I agree this would be a nice addition to the app. At this time, the feature is only available on an Android device. Android and iOs are two different devices, with different capabilities and software. I do not have any additional information if, or when this feature may be included for iOS users. However, our engineers are always working on ways to improve the app, and do review suggestions submitted to UserVoice. 😊”

They rolled this out for android but not iOS. This is very disappointing and frustrating. When is this going to get onto the ios?

I work in a global organisation and want to leave work when I leave work rather than always being connected.
It really is a must these days with the stress of constant communication and feeling like you can never leave work because the emails keep on coming.

Needs to be a do not disturb feature for iOS. I don’t want to set dnd system wide (comes default with iOS 12+), I want to disable my work email while on vacation from within outlook. I cannot believe this is available for android but not iOS.
Any progress on this?

Since the update, I miss the ability to swipe to bring up certain features like brightness and sound and do not disturb. Previously I was able to change these without having to go into Settings and lose the screen I was in. Would like that feature back again.

Do Not Disturb as in stop butting in. I don’t need messages from Outlook every five minutes
Like in the Outlook Android-App

This would be great to define working time and personal time.

This brings up the Do not disturb options screen. From here we have the ability to set six options. These six options are separated into two categories: Timed or Scheduled. Here is a brief explanation of what each of the six options does.
Until I turn it off is an indefinite do not disturb. All notifications from the Outlook client are silenced until you chose otherwise.
For one hour silences Outlook for one hour. The time to the right of the selection lets you know when do not disturb will expire.
Until tomorrow keeps do not disturb in place until 8 am the following day.
During events allows you to silence Outlook notification during any busy time on your calendar. This can include both appointments and meetings. This is particularly useful if you want to automatically quiet your email during meetings.
During work hours allows you to silence Outlook notifications during work hours.
During weekends silences Outlook notifications from Friday 5 pm to Monday 8 am.
