Have settings in place not to send text or email after receiving a voicemail, but the RC app still notifies me of message. If I turn off IOS notifications....I wont receive notifications during normal business hours. There has to be a way to modify this. It's not realistic to think I will have to turn off notifications every day at 5 PM in order to have a family life. Anybody have any ideas????
Thanks.

I use the do not disturb schedule on my iPhone so I don't hear noises after hours. It definitely helps with family life :). The RC app is just one of dozens of apps that would notify me throughout the night otherwise.

I don't think there is a way to silence a single app, although in RC you could probably create a schedule or advanced rule to not take messages at late hours if you want.

If it is really only the RC app that concerns you I suppose you could log out of it each night after work and log back in each morning too.

thanks for the reply. The DnD function isnt practical either because it still sends the badge and message thus creating something else to grab my attention.

I meant DND for the iPhone not the RC app.  I find it pretty awesome that my phone makes no sound or alert during evening hours I choose and only if I pick it up and look at it do I see notifications.  It is also easy enough to swipe up and toggle DND on or off on demand.

Yes agreed DND is pretty good for IOS, but if I see a badge or email...I feel compelled to look at it. Haha. I wish I could write an app for that, but somehow I think Apple wont allow that.
