How can I turn off notifications for a particular text conversation on my iPad?

Turn on do not disturb for a text conversation with the Details settings.

If you have one text thread that just keeps going ad nauseam (i.e. a group text with a bunch of friends) and you don't want to be bothered any more, but you don't want to put your phone on Do Not Disturb either, now you have the option to put just that text conversation on Do Not Disturb. To do so, simply go into the conversation and tap Details in the upper right corner. A number of options come up, toggle on Do Not Disturb.

Turn on do not disturb for a text conversation with the Details settings.
