Can I Turn Notifications off for certain objects after working hours?

I was wondering, can you turn notifications off for non-critical servers and switches between say, the hours of 6pm and 8am?

With all staff receiving alerts via their cell phones, it seems needless to have it pinging off at all hours if the notification is for non-critical hardware. During the work day the notifications for all devices is setup as we need, but would ne nice to turn some off for the evening.

Thanks,

after-hours notifications turn-off

Hello,

in addition to Miguel's answer, it is also possible to set Schedules on Notifications to regularly pause them: http://i62.tinypic.com/20qdx7c.png best regards.

I haven't seen an option for turning off notifications but you have the option to set a schedule for maintenance where those devices/sensors will be paused for that time specified.

You could give the sensors different priority and make libraries with different notifications settings, like descriped in the KB article:
Notifications based on priority or favorites

Thanks for your responses.

I think the scheduling option should do the trick.

Cheers,
