I have always had the default sound on my phone as silent. Then I pick sounds for specific apps (mainly my calendar) or for people with whom I text. This keeps my distractions to a minimum. This setup has worked thru several Samsung phones but no longer does - at least not for calendar notifications. It does work for texts, so something is wrong somewhere. Calling tech support was no help. 

I found a work around: choose a sound under Sounds and vibration and turn the volume all the way down. Then the calendar notifications sound properly.

I do hope the developers fix this ASAP.

More testing: turning the volume all the way down also turns down the volume on the calendar alarm. And turning up the volume on the calendar alarm also turns up the volume under Sounds and vibration in settings. Developers: this needs fixing!

More testing: the Samsung calendar app has a setting that permits alerts even when the phone is set to silent. So I was able to turn the Sounds and vibration sound volume down to silent and got the calendar alert. Does not appear to work with 3rd party calendars that lack that specific setting.
