Plea for a feature: please can we have "Open Priority Interruption Settings" as an option in the app, no just a starting prompt? On some phones, the menu is hidden.

I have a Samsung Note 4 running Lollipop 5.01 and Silence Premium; I am a little confused as to the interactions between Silence Preium, Samsung do not disturb mode and Lollipop priority interrupts. The settings for priority interrupts are different from the image in the help. I am not sure what to do with the 'master switch' at the top and whether starred = favourite; I also don't know how the contacts selected in SP and those in my 'favourite contacts' list will interact. Also, "Do not disturb" seems to pop up, but I don't know if that is Samsung's naff DnD getting in the way or SP pulling the strings! Please can someone enlighten me on the best combination of settings please!

Also, are the Priority Interrupts hidden? I can't find them except through SP.

I don't have the S5 on me right now. But I think it has 5.0.1. I know that 5.1 is about to hit S5 soon, not sure if they have it for the Note yet.

I set all my silent mode time areas and disabled the media sounds in the night options panel but there is still the Whatsapp and the wireless charging sound.

I am using Android 5.1.1?
Any suggestions?

Yes, please report it to WhatsApp team so they can fix it in their code.

Would it be possible to add location support too? I want to schedule silence for my work hours, but only if I'm actually at the office (which can also be expressed as "connected to work wifi"), so if I have a day off or I take 2h off in the middle of the day for an important errand, I can hear my calls. I understand that it's a fairly complex request, especially in terms of making the UI comprehensible, but it'd make it so much more useful for me.

I do have some ideas how the UI could be structured without making it impossible to understand, if you want to hear it. It's also helped by the fact the app doesn't presume to know when my "day" and "night" hours are (thank you!), and asks me instead, so it's a fairly natural addition.

Hi +Maciej Katafiasz, I have at one point started working on this feature but haven't developed it far enough to be ready for user testing. I hope to come back to it soon. Email me at caboosesw@gmail.com if you want to discuss further. Thanks

Hello! I've been using your Do Not Disturb app on Lollipop and it's great :D I'm having a problem though, I think it is a bug.

When night mode turns on due to a schedule, the volume lowers and my phone doesn't ring; Silence mode turns on. But, when I press a volume button Lollipop's Silence mode turns off, and even though the Do Not Disturb notification is still there, Silence mode is off and notifications make my phone ring.

This only happens on my Moto G; tapping a volume button on my Xperia Z3 Compact Tablet while in night mode shows that the phone is currently on Silence "indefinitely"; I think this is a more desirable behavior, because if I accidentaly tap a volume button at night, Do Not Disturb will not turn off by mistake.

All of the Do Not Disturb and Priority Mode settings are exactly the same on my Moto G 1st gen and on my Xperia Tablet, so I'm not sure of what is going on. Please help me! Thanks!

Ok, that sounds fair :) Actually I got this app called SoundHUD, that lets me lock the volume keys to just the music volume, so pressing them doesn't change the ringer and thus your app keeps working. Best combo ever! Thanks for such a great app :)

sure, use the calendar. Add whatever schedule you wish to google calendar, and the app will follow it.

Hey +Ben D 

Have a few feedback…
1) Any possibility to add feature to decline non-whitelisted callers immediately? That's the behaviour in iOS, and people are more likely to immediately/notice something is off, and retry calling again than being sent to a voicemail. 
2) Can you suppress calls/notifications from waking the screen up while a profile/schedule is running? 
3) On that Detect Ringer Mode changes, correct me if I am wrong… the timer window only shows up when I switch modes from normal to silent, and then I tap a notification item before the timer pop-up show up. Is that the expected behaviour? I was under the impression the timer window would show up as soon as I hit vibrate or silent mode; and then it would also prevent me from accidentally exiting vibrate/silent mode. 

Thanks for keeping the app up-to-date for L despite the shortcomings in L's sound profile modes; I'm looking forward to trying out this on L as soon as the update hits my phone.

Sorry +Evan Hindra​, don't know how I missed your post earlier. There is no supported way to reject calls on Android. Its also not possible to keep the screen from waking up. I'm still experimenting with automatic timer, expect more changes soon.

Thanks

sorry, no extensive manual. The idea was to make the app simple enough not to need a manual. What's unclear?

I'm interested in this app. got the free version a couple days ago. I have Samsung Note 3, brand new, still learning about it. I put the app in Day Mode to test allowing incoming calls, which I had set to allow. The phone lit up but didn't ring. Is that the way it's supposed to work? I wouldn't know I was receiving a call unless I was looking at it.

I set all my silent mode time areas and disabled the media sounds in the night options panel but I get a calendar notification at 06:00 as it is an 18 hour reminder.
Phone calls and texts work fine as per my rules, just the calendar that's misbehaving.
I am using Android 5.1.1
Any suggestions?

Thank you so much, the Events and Reminders box was ticked. I found this if anyone else needs a walk through on this.

I am thoroughly confused with a new phone. I have the new LG G Stylo and the Interuptions are totally different than the Pop Up  in DND. I have no idea how they are supposed to be configured. Please let me know what is supposed to be on or off.

Ben, Thanks for answering on a Friday night. It seems LGs settings are different than other manufacturers. You can not get to Priority mode from the volume rocker and all my settings are radio buttons not sliders. Based off of your info I am going to try and set this correctly. This is the 3rd phone I have used the app on. Thanks again.

Last week you had a higher version 3.0.0. Upon last update the download offered only an older version of 2.9.8. This older version does not run on lg vigor with lollipop.

It literally would not start at scheduled time or keep running at DND now. I uninstalled, reinstalled and it worked. As it turns out I think this is just an android issue and nothing to do with your app. Thanks.

The app would jack up the ring volume to the highest after silencing instead of restoring the volume to the previous level before the silencing. Is there a fix to that?

No difference during the first 3 weeks. After that whitelist, sms auto-response, cancel and calendar time adjustments will be disabled.

Does it work with notifications from other apps like Viber or Gmail. Can you add apps to a white list? Thanks.

It's pity that some of the big vendors try to "enhance" the Android settings with their own "value added" features. In my experience their "added value" is only getting in the way, and doesn't work well enough anyway. Samsung is particularly bad at it, in my opinion.

I need Lollipop users to help me test the latest version. Please get the Beta installed on your phones and let me know of any issues asap. I especially need testers with Galaxy S5. Thanks!

Hi +Andreas Wieneke​, you can have a different schedule for each day, but only 2 fixed per day. If you need more, please use google calendar to enter it, and the app will follow.
