The Do Not Disturb preferences in the stock Settings app provides a limited level of scheduling for the DND feature found in iOS. If you want deeper scheduling capability, you’re going to need to rely on a jailbreak tweak like MeetingDND.

Just like the tweak’s name alludes to, MeetingDND allows you to create blocks of Do Not Disturb time based on calendar events. Check out the details in this post for more info.

Once MeetingDND is installed, it’s simply a matter of opening the stock Calendar app and adding a new event. To qualify for Do Not Disturb mode, events must not be set as an all day event and must have at least one associated alert. If your event meets that criteria, then you’ll be able to enable the Do Not Disturb toggle located at the bottom of the event setup page.

Users also have the option of enabling automatic Do Not Disturb for created events that meet the outlined criteria. You can find a toggle for enabling DND by default in the tweak’s preferences in the stock Settings app.

While it’s possible to set a specific schedule for DND in the Do Not Disturb preferences, it’s only for a single time period. With MeetingDND, you get much more flexibility for establishing DND time periods.

Are you a big proponent of Do Not Disturb? Would you consider using this tweak? If you’d like to give MeetingDND a try, head over to the BigBoss repo where it can be downloaded for $1.99.

    Why do you have to have an associated alarm? What if you want to make a study hour every day that has DND enabled, but you don’t need any alarm?

      As a fellow student i think this tweak is great to. But i guess it great for the class session which i use alarm for that.

      You can use the stock settings for DND to create a time-window each day with DND enabled.
      I think the calendar needs the alarm to trigger the DND tweak.

      • Brian

        I’m sure you’re right that he is using the alarm code to inject his DND trigger, but its an unfortunate limitation.
        You’re suggestion about the stock schedule feature is only helpful if you don’t want to use it for another time of the day as well, say from 10pm-5am.

    Slightly off topic: could someone please tell me what App is used to make that red arrow in the screenshot?

    • Brian

      Maybe “Preview” (OSX).

      I use Evernote to do that

    Absolutely brilliant add on. Really ought to be native.
