What our customers think

"As a hybrid, dynamic organisation that crosses multiple timezones and working patterns, Slack is the glue that holds us together. That glue can get unstuck quickly when your status doesn't match what you're actually doing, though! Don't Interrupt provides a solid foundation and the quick customisation I need when things change!"
Adam Wilson
Customer Success Manager
Secure Schools
"The closest product that I could find is called Don't Interrupt, where you can schedule work hours and it will display the status for hours outside of this time window. The app offers a great user experience if you need this kind of behavior."
Janez Čadež
Status Scheduler for Slack
"I can't think of any other piece of technology that brought me as much mental peace at work as Don't Interrupt. All my Slack notifications are silenced when I'm in a meeting and I can pay attention to what is being discussed."
