Slack Users Can Now Schedule When To Get Notifications With This New Feature

Slack will now allow its users to control the hours in which they prefer to get notifications. Users can now schedule different notification settings for different days, meaning users can avoid weekend notifications if they choose.


The company in a tweet said that the new feature is designed to keep to a schedule that doesn’t conform with traditional work hours. “You may now customize your notifications on a per-day basis. If your schedule doesn’t conform to traditional work hours, this one’s for you,” Slack tweeted.



Slack had previously just let users choose to get notifications only when they are “available”. Unlike the new feature, there was no way to turn off during weekends or on particular days. The new update also means that Slack users can choose not to receive any notification during holidays.
