In this article, it is described how to set Outlook to e.g. do not disturb during weekends.

In addition to this, I would like to add the criteria to not disturb after work hours (i.e. 5 PM to 8 AM).

From my understanding, this is not possible? Could we persuade Microsoft to add this feature somehow?

EDIT: I found that several others also want this feture.


The latest versions of the Outlook app actually already have this new DND option "During evenings" wherein you can configure your after-work routine. By default, it is set to 5PM to 8AM schedule as you want in your question. But it can also be modified to fit a different routine. Here's the screenshot:

  • I just updated the app to version 4.0.94. But I don't have that function. Maybe the version patched to Google Play varies depending on the region. I live in Finland. Perhaps Google's server for apps in Europe is not as up to date as other places in the world. Jan 10 '20 at 16:31
  • @tomatoeshift I'm on the version 4.0.94, last updates on 20th December. Which one are you at?
