If you want to pause the notifications from an alert temporarily, you can mute the alert.
You can mute a single Alert in the following way:
Go to the Events Page
Click the right side of the alert you want to mute to reveal the alert menu
Select Mute Alerts
Choose the time period you want to mute the Alert for
You can also mute all filters by clicking the bell icon next to Alerts
Note: Muting an Alert does NOT stop it from notifying other people. Each individual must mute their own alerts. If you want to stop the alerts from notifying other people, you must remove them from the Alert.
