I set a schedule for 'Do not disturb' feature, it works regardless of scheduled start time

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Do Not Disturb Mode

Do not disturb mode sets your device to mute all calls and alerts on your device, except for your selected exceptions. If you set a specific schedule including Days, Start time and End time, the device will mute all calls and alerts for scheduled time.

Note: If alarms are not set as an exception, Do not disturb mode will silence all alarms set on your device.

Turn On Do Not Disturb Mode using the Notification Panel shortcuts

Swipe from the top of the screen -> Swipe left on the shortcuts at the top > Touch Do not disturb to turn on the feature.

Do Not Disturb Mode Troubleshoot

When only the schedule is set while Do not disturb feature is disabled, device operates the feature for scheduled time.


However, if the Do not disturb feature is also enabled while specific schedule is set, device will go into Do Not disturb mode immediately from the moment in time when the feature is activated by you regardless of scheduled start time and will be automatically disabled at scheduled end time.
