Scheduler (automatic planner)

Sound Profile is able to set a planner or scheduler to automatically activate profiles at specific times during the week. For example, automatically activate profile Normal at 7:00 a.m. during the weekdays and Night at 10:00 p.m. But in weekends I want different times. All this is possible with Sound Profile and is very simple to set. Just follow these steps:

  • Open Sound Profile and tap on the menu 
  • Tap on Scheduler
  • In the drop-down combobox select “My Scheduler” (if it is not already selected).
  • Icons next to the name () are used to rename the scheduler, delete it or to add new schedulers.
  • You will see you have different sections, one for each day of the week. One for Monday, another for Tuesday…
  • Look at the add icon in each day of the week. Clicking on it you are able to add time intervals for that day.

For example:

  • Click on Save after setting all your intervals.
Tapping on the remove icon  at the left will allow you to remove the time interval. 
Tapping on the interval will allow you to modify the time or the profile.

As you can see there is not a start and a end time for a interval. You don’t need to specify that Normal starts at 7:00 and ends at 22:00, and Then Night starts at 22:00 and ends at 7:00. You just set Normal to start at 7:00 and Night to start at 22:00

Several schedulers

It is possible to have several preset Schedulers. For example, one called “My Scheduler” for normal use, another called “Christmas” for winter holidays, another called “Summer” and so on. This way you could activate “Summer” at the beginning of the Summer and “My Scheduler” at the end of the Summer.

Some people also use this feature for different work shifts, for example having a scheduler called “Night week shift”.

You can automatically activate Schedulers depending on the date using the Android Calendar integrated in your device. For example, set your Android calendar to activate “Summer” on July, 1st and activate “My scheduler” on August, 31st. For more information on this feature read this article.

  1. I have a schedule that changes to normal at 6am but sometimes I get up early and override the schedule and set normal before 6am. But, at 6am the phone beeps and the volume rises. So my question is: by manually selecting normal, am I overriding the schedule or is it not possible to override the schedule?

    1. Hello Brenden
      Simply manually activating a profile will not override the Scheduler. If you want to override it, you need to specify how long you want that profile to be active. To do that you need to Activate a profile for a certain time (Timed profiles)
      For example, let’s say you have Scheduler set to activate Night profile at 9 pm
      You enter at the cinema at 7 pm and activate Silent profile.
      At 9 pm the Scheduler will activate Night.
      The solution for this will be:
      You enter at the cinema at 7 pm and activate Silent profile for 2 hours, until 10 pm
      At 9 pm the Scheduler will NOT activate Night. But at 10:00 (once you are out of the cinema) it will be activated.
      Do you understand?

  2. I am trying out the scheduler but, I have noticed that when the scheduler is active my geofenced Events and Task don’t work or I should say the don’t switch as the scheduler seems to have priority over the geofences am I correct in that?

    1. That shouldn’t affect. Please, send me your settings using the Contact Me option of the Sound Profile main menu. In that email tell me your issue so I can remember it (I receive many emails from many users).

  3. Is there a way to pause a schedule? I’m a teacher and have a schedule for vibrate during the school day. Now that we’re in summer I’d like to pause the schedule as opposed to delete and start again next school year.
    Thank you

    1. Yes, very simple.
      Open Sound Profile >> Menu >> Automatic Scheduler >> Tap on the Scheduler name (you should see a little arrow next to it) >> select Disable and Save.
      You can create other schedulers like “Summer” or “Christmas” without deleting your “School scheduler” and selecting one or the other.
      You can automatically activate Schedulers depending on the date using the Android Calendar integrated in your device. For example, set your Android calendar to activate “Summer” on July, 1st and activate “My scheduler” on August, 31st. For more information on this feature read this article:

  4. Please add a button in the main UI to go back to the scheduled profile.

    Something like “Return to Scheduled Profile”, “Activate Schedule”, “Scheduled Profile”, a clock icon, etc.

    Reason: After I’ve changed some volume level, and after I’m done using my temporary “custom volume”, I want to be able to quickly return to whatever volume settings are defined for the current time in my Sound Profile (Scheduler).

    Thanks.

  5. What does “Alarm Clock Mode” mean? It says in the app to activate this if the scheduler is not accurate. I’m not sure what it will do and can’t find information.

  6. The schedule is not working. It doesn’t change automatically. I have the android 11 in a Samsung, can you please advise?

  7. For the scheduler, if I make manual volume changes, it seems to kill the next scheduled change. Is that the intended behaviour? I think the power settings are ok and it triggers if I never interfere with the volume.

    1. Activating a profile manually will not affect the Scheduler. For example, let’s say you have set to activate profile Night at 8:00 pm, and you manually activate any profile at 7:50 pm. Well, in this case, at 8:00 pm will change to Night anyway.
      Another approach is to “activate a profile until a certain time”, in this case this manually activating time is respected. For example, let’s say you enter in the Cinema at 7:00 pm and you activate profile Silent for 2 hours, in this case the app will not chane to Night at 8:00 p.m., it will do it a 9:00 p.m. (after the 2 hour period ends). Take a look a this.

  8. Is it possible to copy a schedule to another one in order to make small changes and keep both of them?

    1. Sorry it is not possible right now. Let me add that to my long Suggestion list.
      Thanks for the idea.

  9. Is it possible to switch automatically between summer and winter time without setting 2 different schedulers.

  10. My scheduler does not work anymore. There’s no battery optimization enabled for this app on my phone. It’s a Moto G5s. Any thoughts on what else it could be?

    1. Hello

      Please, send me your settings using the Contact Me option of the SoundProfile main menu. In that email tell me your issue so I can remember it (I receive many emails from many users).

  11. Mine scheduler was working fine until my last phone update. I am running Android 10 on a Samsung S20 plus, unlocked version.

      1. Hi, I’m having this issue and when I try to add the app to the never sleep lost it isn’t an option. It’s not listed in my apps. I have a Galaxy S20 as well

        1. Please open your Galaxy settings
          Go to ”apps”
          Select the ”3 dots” and select Special permissions
          Selected ”optimize battery….”
          Be sure Sound Profile is NOT selected.
          Now go to the battery-screen and select the view fo adding apps that should not be power saved. Be sure Sound Profile is enabled.
