Use the Do Not Disturb Feature on Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge

Tired of notifications interrupting your sleep or an important meeting? Do Not Disturb mutes all alerts on your device, unless you set them as exceptions. You can also set a schedule for Do Not Disturb so you can always get an undisturbed goodnight's rest, every night. If you have an app that's constantly bothering you with notifications, you can Change App Notifications individually.

The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Turn On Do Not Disturb

Shh! Let your phone know it's time for you to get some rest. Follow along to activate Do Not Disturb mode.

From the Notification Panel

  1. To access the Notification Panel, swipe down from the top of the screen.  

  2. To display all Quick Settings, swipe down again.  

    For some carriers, you may be required to double swipe to view the Quick Settings.

  3. Swipe to the left if needed.   

  4. Touch Do not disturb.  

From Settings

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.  

  2. Touch search, then search for and select Do not disturb.  

  3. To turn on Do not disturb, touch the slider next to Turn on now.   

  4. To turn off Do not disturb, touch the slider again.

Do Not Disturb Schedule

If you know you need to silence your phone at 3 p.m. every Thursday for that staff meeting, set a schedule for Do Not Disturb mode to activate. Here's how:

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.  

  2. Touch search, then search for and select Do not disturb.  

  3. To set a schedule, touch the slider next to Turn on as scheduled.     

      

  4. To adjust the schedule, touch Days, Start time, and End time, and then set the schedule to your preference. 

Set Up Exceptions

Sometimes you want to chill out, but you know if your boss calls you need to answer. You can set up exceptions so you can be notified of important alerts while in Do Not Disturb mode.

If the exceptions are not adjusted, the Do not disturb mode will silence all alerts set on your device.

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.  

  2. Touch search, then search for and select Do not disturb.  

  3. Touch Allow exceptions.  

  4. Choose from the displayed options.
