As an example, let’s say I have a college class at 10:00 AM, 1:30 AM, and 4:30 AM. I could just simply set a Schedule from 10:00 to whenever my class ends, or have to toggle it on and off that number of times.
It’s more efficient and productive to have to set it only once and it take care of it all for you. Since calendar events can span numerous weeks, months, and days, I can set Do Not Disturb in the event and it will mandate every single instance of that event until the event no longer repeats.
I also don’t have to worry either about forgetting to enable Do Not Disturb since it will take care of it for me. Of course, you can override it by turning Do Not Disturb off in Settings or changing the availability off Do Not Disturb.
Integrating Reminders as well would bring location as a trigger mechanism for DND mode.
The feature could even be more useful if DND could be activated using any sort of trigger, not just a Calendar event or a Reminder, but even, say for instance, a change in the state of the hardware mute switch. In fact, the ability to set up IFTTT like triggers to automate tasks on an iOS device would be pretty awesome to have. Jailbreak tweak Activator does this partially, and Android has apps that already do this.
What do you think of the DND Calendar integration, and the larger idea to have a system to automate tasks on your iOS devices?
