Howdy! Sorry if you're seeing issues coming out of scheduled Do Not Disturb as you arrive at work for your working day. There was an issue on our side causing this. A fix is already in place, but you may need to refresh Slack (with Cmd R for Mac, or Ctrl R for Windows and Linux) for it to take effect. If that doesn't help, disabling and re-enabling Do Not Disturb should do the trick.

We're really sorry for the trouble. As always, please do just let us know if there's anything we can do to help.
