This may be a stupid question since the Android is maybe supposed to work this way, still though I am wondering if this is possible.

Two apps, Microsoft Teams and Outlook are sending the notifications when the app is "closed". Now i would like for that NOT to happen when the app is closed. Is there any way whatsoever, that i can stop the notifications when the app is "closed"? I understand that the app is probably always running in the background and that until force stop it is never really closed. I am just wondering if I am missing something that can be chosen in the notifications settings that i havent found yet.

Also, i do realise that you can choose the "quiet hours" in the App settings itself, but that is not something i am looking for.

    Push messages by design can wake-up (or even start) the app they belong to. The only chance to silence them is the "Do Not Disturb Mode" or if the app supports a different processing of push messages during certain hours. – Robert Nov 5 '20 at 10:21

  • You can block notifications of specific apps with Automate app. Tell me if you are okay with using a 3rd party app – Aayush Nov 5 '20 at 14:33
  • @velvethadron If you want an app to not show any notification at all, you can long press the app -> go to app info. -> notifications -> and deny permission – Ak. Nov 5 '20 at 16:04
