Vibrate on for calls but not on silent mode

Hi. I now have a Xperia z5 compact Marshmallow. I would like it to vibrate for calls when the ringer volume is on (which it does) but for vibration to switch off during silent mode.

I can switch vibration on or off in the settings but I don't want to do that every time I turn silent mode on or off. With my iPhone there was a separate setting for whether it should vibrate during silent mode. Can this be done with the z5? Thank you.

Total silence mode is called "Do no disturb" in Marshmallow, you can find it in quick settings when you pull down notifications menu. This will mute notifications sounds and vibrations, and you can set exceptions for it from Settings -> Sound & notifications -> Do not disturb
