    I use it every night. Got tired of being woken up by no important phone calls or work. So I have it in and only allow my, brother, and top manager to get through. Love it! That and I have a young baby so not having any notification beeps or other noises waking her up makes me and my wife's life easier.

    I don't have it on a schedule but instead, turn it on when I need it.

    I use it every night automatically.

    I'll also turn it on manually during meetings, church, Bible study.

    It worked TOO well for me. It did a good job blocking calls, but it blocked texts too from my employees. I need those to get through. Any ideas?

    Turn it on - don't you use the calendar feature where cortana turns it on for you when you mark yourself busy ? (im assuming you use the calendar here :)

    I use Quiet Hours everyday 10PM to 7AM - love it!

    Set the "knock knock" feature, if they really need to get through to you they text back knock knock and it will send the text through.

    Mine is set for midnight to six am. and it is set to turn on with any Calendar event marked busy. Great feature!!!

    Unfortunately, I have 60 employees. They SHOULD be texting my assistant before 7am, but if they don't, I need to respond. Maybe that part of quiet hours just won't really work for me.

    The only other option might be to add them all to your inner circle?

    I use it with my calendar. That way I never have to think to silence my phone, Cortana does it for me!

    I have quiet hours set to automatically go every night. I think it is definitely one of the killer features of 8.1.

    You can
    I don't think you can. It is tied in with Cortana for some inexplainable reason, and if Cortana is unavailable in your country then you don't have the Quite Hours feature.

    That's true! The only way to use it is by changing your region so that Cortana is available.
