One of the most useful features of macOS that allows you to work uninterrupted is "Do Not Disturb". As the name implies, recipients mute all notifications on your Mac, such as messages, phone calls, emails, and applications by default. Update notifications or other types of notifications. Notifications are automatically routed to the Notifications Center for later viewing and do not interfere with workflow by default.
