  • You can also open Controls in the top-right corner of the screen and select Do Not Disturb mode.
  • You can go to System Preferences > Notifications > Do Not Disturb and set up a schedule for the mode.
  • Note that an active Do Not Disturb mode will not skip all notifications on your Mac altogether.
