Automatically turn on Focus Assist based on location

I'd like to be able to turn on Focus Assist automatically when I get to my university campus. It's pretty easy to do something similar on my Android phone, but the Focus Assist triggers on my tablet (MS Surface Go) do not include anything related to location or, say, presence of a certain Wi-Fi network.

I've looked around a bit for a third-party app that would be able to do this, with no luck.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Thanks, I'm already aware of the settings that Windows offers. It does not include the ability to turn on Focus Assist based on location. Hence my question.

Hi rbcameron,

Yeah... sometimes people don't read a question <sigh>

Unfortunately, MS didn't include a setting to toggle the Focus Assist service on/off based on location. A setting based on GPS, wifi network/location (similar to what Android has incorporated) would be great. Unfortunately, things like this that you would think should be basic by now - just aren't there.

Have you ever encountered a Windows app that is able to perform actions - like changing the state of some setting - based on a geofencing trigger or something similar?

There is Geofencing settings in windows (just type that in the start menu) - but it looks like it is only for setting up location tags (where did I park my car?). In all honesty, I haven't played with them at all in Windows because I've never needed them - so I've never dug into what exactly you can do. But, there are also apps on the Windows Store for different Geofencing uses.
