Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you need some quiet time on your mobile device, but Slack calls keep interrupting you? As much as I love using Slack to stay connected with my team, there are times when constant calls can be quite distracting. In this article, I will guide you through the process of disabling Slack calls on your mobile device, so you can have uninterrupted focus when you need it the most.
Step 1: Open the Slack App
First, open the Slack app on your mobile device. Make sure you are logged into your account and have access to your workspace. Once you’re in, it’s time to dive into the settings and make the necessary changes.
Step 2: Access the Settings
In the bottom right corner of the Slack app, you will find a tab that looks like three horizontal lines stacked on top of each other. Tap on this tab to open the sidebar menu. At the top of the menu, you will see your workspace name. Tap on it to access the settings for that workspace.
Step 3: Navigate to Call Settings
Once you are in the settings menu, scroll down until you find the “Settings & administration” section. Tap on “Call settings” to open the options related to Slack calls.
Step 4: Disable Incoming Calls
Here’s where the magic happens! Under the “Call settings” menu, you will see a toggle switch labeled “Receive incoming calls.” By default, this switch is turned on, allowing you to receive calls on your mobile device. Tap on the toggle switch to turn it off, effectively disabling incoming Slack calls on your mobile device.
Step 5: Enjoy Uninterrupted Focus
Now that you have disabled Slack calls on your mobile device, you can enjoy uninterrupted focus whenever you need it. No more distractions or interruptions from unexpected calls while you’re trying to concentrate on your tasks.
It’s important to note that disabling Slack calls on your mobile device does not affect your ability to make calls and join calls initiated by others. You can always enable incoming calls again by following the same steps if you want to be reachable via Slack calls.
Disabling Slack calls on your mobile device can be a game-changer when it comes to maintaining focus and productivity. By following the simple steps outlined in this article, you can regain control over your notifications and enjoy uninterrupted work or personal time.
