This article explains how to automatically set the “Do Not Disturb” status in the Zoom app on Windows 11.
Zoom is a video conferencing and online meeting platform that allows users to connect remotely. It offers Video and audio conferencing, screen sharing, and recording features.
There are many settings one can configure in the Zoom app on Windows. Users can download and install, start Zoom automatically when Windows starts, use dual monitors, turn Video and audio on or off screen lock, mute microphone when joining meetings, change where to save meeting recordings, turn message preview on or off, turn chat notifications on or off, turn new message sound on or off, change skin tone for emojis, and more.
When you use the Zoom app, users can set their status to “Do Not Disturb” using their profile settings. When their status is set to Do not disturb, other users will see that and try to avoid communicating with them.
The Zoom app makes it easy by allowing users to automatically change their status to Do not disturb during certain times. Instead of manually changing your status, the app will change your availability for the desired time.
Setting your status to “Do Not Disturb” can be useful when you don’t want to be disturbed during a meeting or when you need to focus on a task with minimal distractions. Setting your status to “Do Not Disturb” prevents unwanted notifications and distractions from popping up on your screen while working.
Setting it up to automatically change your status during certain times can also save you the hassle of manually changing it every time.
