Has anyone found a way to turn on Do Not Disturb mode for every device from one.

Often times when I'm trying to work and people won't shut up I turn on DND mode on my MBP but then my iPhone will start dinging away. So I turn on DND mode there too. Then iPad starts up etc. This is an almost endless process. There's an additional 2 other Macs tied into my iCloud account. I've been tempted to just turn it off completely but it's about as handy as it is annoying.

Also find that when I need to turn DND mode off I forget on 1 device or more causing some annoyance if I actually need the notifications.

Ideally I'd like to be able to activate DND mode globally from my MBP.

I'm curious if anyone else has seen a possible solution to this.

This now happens by default. Here is the Apple Documentation source, screenshot as well to anticipate link rot.

When you use Focus on one device, the setting is automatically applied across your Apple devices that are signed in with the same Apple ID.


Turn on focus


Make a shortcut home automation with that (and be sure that everywhere your logged in same apple id )
