S7 Edge Do Not Disturb

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Hi can anyone help? I have a S7 Edge and I am trying to get it to put the notification icon up when I get emails but NOT vibrate, I want it to vibrate with text messages though. I have tried all settings I can find and it still vibrates. More annoying than that is the phone is still vibrating when emails arrive even during Do Not Disturb mode. I have set no eceptions except alarms. It is driving me mad.

So let's forget about DnD for a minute because it is not going to do what you want to achieve. 

Let's focus on the notification issue outside of DnD. 

 

In Gmail and in stock app you have turned off vibration and your still get vibration notification for every email. Can you turn off notification in Gmail altogether and see if still notifies you?

Also have you set any accessibility options by any chance?

Do not disturb feature is not another notification scheme but a way to control who and what can notify you. But still uses the same notification parameters that is set up in that app. 

In your email app turn off vibration notification. This may not be ideal but it is the way it would work.

So the actual issue is that you get vibration notification from your email app even when in your email app you set it not notify you by vibrating, correct?

What email app do you use? Stock app? Maybe more than one app?

Yes, I suppose that is what I am saying is the issue but I also thought that DnD would stop any notifications but emails are still coming through and vibrating. I am using stock email app as well as gmail and both are set not to vibrate.

If I turn off notifications it works as expected, I get no notifications at all. No I have no accessability turned on at all.

This is strange as it also happens to 2 apps. So it can't be app related. 

Let's see if others have any ideas.

I do believe I have fixed this. I found that somehow ( as you said) it was in accessibility it was set to vibrate every 10 mins if i had unread emails. No idea how that got turned on as I had not set it....probably my kids having a laugh. Thanks for your help!

This is still an issue. I need reminder alerts, but not in DND. I guess I need to switch phones to non-Samsung? Is this all Samsung?
