Edited by VisiHow, Eng, Anonymous
You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to allow exceptions, such as alarms or incoming phone calls from important people, to the "Do not disturb" mode on the Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge.
In order to allow exceptions, your phone needs to be unlocked.
Then, swipe the screen down from the top.
This will allow you to access the notifications panel, where you may have a shortcut for the "Do not disturb" mode.
However, to customize the settings, tap on the gear settings icon.
Then, scroll to the second section, "Device".
Tap on "Sounds and notifications".
Once you've tapped on "Sounds and notifications", find and tap "Do not disturb" under "Notifications".
Tapping on "Do not disturb" will allow you to tap on the "Turn on now" option.
This will enable the "Do not disturb" mode. Then, you can allow exceptions.
Tap on "Allow exceptions".
This will let you choose the exceptions that you would like to allow. You can enable "Alarms", "Calls", and "Messages". You can also customize the calls, events, and "App notifications".
For for purpose of this video, let's tap on the "Calls" toggle to enable it.
Then, tap on "Calls and/or messages from" to customize the option.
We can now tap on "Favorite contacts only" or "Contact only".
If we tap on "Contacts only", then the only calls we will receive will be from our contacts. We won't receive any messages. If we tap on "Messages", then we'll also receive calls and messages from our contacts only.
You can tap on the "Events and reminders" toggle.
You can set priority interruptions for applications by tapping on "App notifications".
You can choose which applications you would like to allow to send notifications to you.
You can set up your game notifications. You can set up things such as knowing when Candy Crush or Clash of Clans are ready to play. You can enable Dropbox notifications or Email. It's entirely up to you which notifications you'll allow.
When you've finished, simply tap on the back arrow.
Then, you can press the home button.
You will go back to the home screen. You'll see an icon at the upper-left side. The icon will indicate that you are in "Do not disturb" mode.
Swipe down from the top to open the notification panel.
You'll also see that the "Do not disturb" option is turned on.
To turn "Do not disturb" off, just tap on it once.
