    I want to be able to get notifications on direct messages in my off hours. I have set my mobile app to DND but get alerts on mentions of General. This is annoying, as people shout to General often in my off-hours. If I set quite hours, it seems I will not get notifications on direct messages, which I do want for emergency response needs. Short of disabling all notifications in off-hours, how can I stop the chatter?
