    Focus Assist How to Specify a Time Duration


    I'm a big fan of the Focus Assist feature, but it's missing some functionality that I would like. I'd like to be able to enable Focus Assist for a specified time period, say 30 minutes or 1 hour, and have it automatically turned off when the time duration I choose is up. The reason for this is that I frequently manually enable it but then forget to turn it back off and I miss notifications. Slack has this type of feature for their notification Snooze and I love it. Is there any way that I could set this up for Windows 10 Focus Assist?

    :)

    Hello Mike, *Smile

    Focus Assist used to be called "Quiet Hours".

    It's a feature that basically allows you to pause or stop showing notifications when they would be inconvenient.

    Here's some tutorials below to give you more details:

    Focus Assist is nicely explained in this Windows Blog item from Elana Pidgeon "Windows 10 Tip: How to enable Focus Assist in the Windows 10 April 2018 Update" (May 2018):

    "Focus Assist helps you get more done by easily blocking notifications, sounds, and alerts to create distraction-free work times. This is helpful if you’re giving a presentation or trying to focus on a paper, you can use Focus Assist to block interruptions or distractions."
    Check out the preceding link for more information on the tool, along with instructions for enabling/disabling this setting.
