There are some preset focus modes, but you can always add additional modes using the ‘+’ button. There are modes for exercising, driving or even for reading and playing, although you can always create your own using the ‘Custom’ option.
Just go into the general settings of the focus mode to select which people and which apps you want to be notified from.
