How to mute notifications

Using Shift's "Mute Notifications" tool, you can manage notifications across all the email accounts and apps that you've added. In your Quick Settings (the small gear icon in the top right of Shift), you can choose to immediately mute notifications for 30 minutes or open your Notification Settings. Once clicked into the Notification Settings, you can toggle whether or not Shift will automatically mute notifications when you're in a meeting, as well as whether you want to mute just email alerts, calendar alerts, app alerts, or a combination of the 3.
