Do not disturb mode previous feature missing

Hi. I've noticed that there's no possibility to set "do not disturb mode" to end automatically on next alarm. This feature was available in 5.1.1, why did you remove it?

Re: Do not disturb mode previous feature missing

I have checked on a Z2 with 5.1.1 and indeed you can enable exceptions in scheduled dnd and it will stay on until the next alarm. Haven't found the option on 6.0. Will also try to find out further information on this.

@Dominic81 Are you sure?

Re: Do not disturb mode previous feature missing

Before this update it was possible at 'do not disturb mode' to allow contacts to call you. For example, nobody can call me in the night, except my girlfriend. To make this happen before this update you had to make the person who allowed you to call 'favorite'. This worked great.

 

Now you can set by priorities (settings -> sounds and notifications -> do not disturb -> priorities -> calls) contact with a star are allowed to call you. I have marked my girlfriends in my phone with a star, but if she calls me there is no sound. Does anyone have a solution for this?

 

Thanks.

@Grooveman1

In do not disturb, you can select between total silence, alarms only and priority only. To get a ringtone when your girlfrind calls you select priority only by swiping down the notifications bar to access the quick settings and tap the Do not disturb option.

Under DON'T DISTURB there are a lot of options to get a fully controlled situation as to get back called when a caller is calling you again in 15 minutes
