    Welcome to the Forum. What kind of phone are you using? When you drill down into the actual Automatic Rules within the DND Settings, do you have a Total Silence option?

    I suppose this is how Google intended DND to work in Nougat? On my phone, the Alarms option was always defaulted to always on even before Nougat.

    That was my concern too BUT if they wanted it to be always on like that it seems odd to have left the slider added if we cant use it

    Good point. I'm pretty sure the slider has always been grayed out on Moto phones, alarms will always sound with DND u less you select the Total Silence option. Not sure why Google left the slider visible? I thought that was the same for every Android phone, there's that "fragmentation" kicking up again

    Not that I am aware of in stock Android. The DND Priority Only Settings have Alarms as always a priority, so I don't think there is a way. There may be apps that can do this? But I am not aware of any. My DND usage is the exact opposite, I want only alarms to sound when I have DND activated, and Priority Callers.
