Schedules for DND (Do Not Disturb) mode.

Hi all,

I got a new Xiaomi Mi 11 lite 5G recently running MIUI Global 12.5.3, and while overall this phone is very good, there is one disappointing thing related to Do Not Disturb mode. And I'd very grateful if Mi 11 lite users can confirm or deny whether they see the same behavior or not.
The problem is that there seems to be no way to create multiple schedule timers for DND mode, and a user has to either enable it (selecting turn on/off time and days) or disable.
On all other Xiaomi I have now in my family, it's possible to create multiple schedule timers for DND and Silent modes, the simplest usage example is when a user creates one schedule for workdays and another one for weekends.
Here are the screenshots from Mi 11 lite and Redmi Note 8T:

Does Mi 11 lite really lack this feature?

Take a look under Digital Wellbeing / Do Not Disturb. You can set multiple time periods but I have not yet found out if you can for example have DND active during calendar events.

No. DND button goes to same options with only one time period.
I just checked and you are correct. I had an update over a week ago that must have prevented this workaround.

I think because I set the schedules before, they should work but I won't be able to change them.

I don't understand why they thought it was a good idea to only have one DND schedule and then try and block every access to the old page which probably still exists.

With last update they are messed up a lot of useful functions.
If they don't want we have more than one DND schedule, I will use tasker for do it but I will think on it when I plan change my phone.
maybe miui is not the next option I choose

Hey all, found a new workaround on Reddit thanks to u/BusFan10

Simply install this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.szalkowski.activitylauncher

Once installed, search for "silentmodesettings" and press it. Then it will take you to the old silent mode screen that lets you add multiple schedules.

EDIT: just found a new schedule menu. You can find it by search for this in the activity launcher app: com.android.settings.Settings$ZenModeAutomationSettingsActivity

I used an app called activity manager which allows you to add a shortcut to the home screen but it is harder to use than activity launcher due to the search function not searching individual settings within the settings.

Hi, I did, and by the way, found the previously set dnd modes on my last device. Anyway, seems a bit strange to have to install third party apps, wich I dont know about its safety 100%, maybe developers could take this into account for future roms, dont know how to make them know about it, or if simply by talking about this here is enough.

Thank you.

Hi, it seems that the settings exist within MIUI and there is just no button to access them without installing a third-party app. Don't know what DND looks like in MIUI 13. Here is a pic of the "new" DND schedules page using the "com.android.settings.Settings$ZenModeAutomationSettingsActivity" setting (might be what we get in MIUI 13):

You should find one of the main Devs on this forum and @ them or see if there is a Developer thread.

Hope this helps!

Oh, maybe I didn't explain myself, I am in MIUI 13 already, and there is no such screen, only this one, at least I couldn't get to it.

Ah, didn't realise that. But it is still in the settings, just hidden. Why would they bother redesigning that menu? I think it will come in a future update.

Maybe it has to do with digital wellbeing gone, cause before flashing MIUI 13, DND multiple schedule were available under this menu. Noe digital wellbeing seems to be switch to "screen time" wich doesn't include anything related to DND as you can see here

Hi, just a week with Xiaomi 11T and got screwed with this DND. Had set the shedule which works. But, though i have enabled notification for repeated callers, my phone didn't ring. Missed an emergency call. Deeply regretting coming to Xiaomi.
