Hi Lars,

Thanks for the interesting feedback. I'm happy to let you know that we 
have already thought about the problem you described. All you need to do 
is switch to "Do not disturb" mode, which will disable all, but critical 

Hope it is close to the solution you've been asking for.

Many thanks,
