Enjoy Some Free Time – Snooze Microsoft Teams Outside Of Business Hours

We all love our mobile phones… arguably a little too much. Let’s take control of your Teams notifications so you can make sure your work doesn’t interfere with personal time. Let’s help you snooze Microsoft Teams.

Set Up Quiet Hours and Quiet Days

We get it. Microsoft Teams is a lifeline here at Winsor Consulting. It’s used on a daily basis and quite frankly makes communicating at work arguably the easiest task of the day. But when it’s time to clock out, sometimes the notifications can follow you home. When this happens, Microsoft Teams becomes the uninvited guest at the party. 

On Teams mobile, you can set “Quiet Hours” (for example, 7 PM to 7 AM) and “Quiet Days” (for example, Saturday and Sunday) This feature helps you take control over your off-work time and can help relieve stress. Keeping stress down doesn’t only make life much more pleasurable for you, but it actually creates a healthier work environment. So combining all three of these things can cause an employee to forge the association of stress = work and the end result leaves no one happy in the workplace. 83% of US workers suffer from work-related stress. US businesses lose up to $300 billion yearly as a result of workplace stress. Stress causes around one million workers to miss work every day. Let’s do what we can to reduce some of those statistics. 

Snooze Microsoft Teams notifications settings on a mobile phone:


  1. Select Notifications from the main menu.


      2. Select Quiet hours.


      3. To set up daily Quiet hours, turn them on and then select the hours that you do not want to receive notifications.


      4. To turn off notifications for specific days, select Quiet days and turn the feature on.

      5. Then you can select the days you do not want to receive notifications.


For some people, you may think that the simple snooze Microsoft Teams notifications function isn’t that big of a deal. However, there may be someone who had a tough day at work and doesn’t want to be reminded of it when they go home to see their kids and family. Work-induced stress is a serious topic and we want to do whatever we can to reduce that. A simple snooze of Microsoft Teams notifications might just be the solution to better an employee’s night off. 

By the way, if you don’t have the Teams mobile app installed on your phone, head over to the iOS App Store (for an iPhone) or the Google Play Store (for an Android phone).
