    Hi friends,

    We recently got an interesting message from fb07, who has been with us since our OnePlus One days. He reflected on everything he loved about the OnePlus 5 (which we love hearing about!) except the Alert Slider. His opinion was that it's pretty useless for most people (really?) right now and suggested that we rethink the function of the Alert Slider.


    I also got a lot of feedback in Vito's last deep dive thread on Gaming DND vs Alert Slider. Some users said they just want two options, Vibrating and Silent. Others wanted Ring /Vibrate/Total Silence or the ability fully customize these 3 options.

    That's why I decided to hold a survey to get a sense of what everyone really wants. Thanks in advance for sharing your opinion. Let's keep working together to create better products.

    Thank you.

    Oh great stuff, there have been lots of things proposed already for being able to customise the alert slider as users see fit (@Maximus Decimus Meridius had a good thread on it), but I for one would already be very happy if we regained the original functionality of the alert slider, so I can have a "completely silent" mode, a "vibrate only" mode and a "normal" one, without having to use @GeertBerkers' app (however great that is! find it in his thread here)

    I couldn't agree more.

    @Zero L. If you make any changes to the current behaviour, please make them backward compatible for users (like me) who are totally satisfied with the way things are now.

    (I voted for the option: leave it the way it is, btw)

    I don't mind using the current configuration, but I can see why people ask for ring / vibrate / silent, it is quite convenient and straightforward.

    No physical button for Alert Slider. Set Ring/Vibration/Silent/Do Not Disturb via a software setting.

    I for myself love the alert slider. However, with the current configuration of settings we lose one amazing feature that is Scheduled DND. Bring scheduled DND to the mix and it will be perfect! The ring/vibrate/silent options for the alert slider + software setting for DND idea might be a good way to do this.
    Of course, some more customisation options won't hurt either!!

    Alleluja. It could be really nice in the Ring/Vibration/Silent option if we could switch to DND mode with Volume Up, similarly before you changed the Alert Slider (DND -> Vibration with Volume Down).

    Thank you. I hope this option will win!

    Make all 3 customizable. Let a user decide what he needs to do with the 3 modes !

    There are literally so many thread and suggestions made on the alert slider since a long time on forums.
    Strange it caught attention now from a non-forum source.o_O
    Nevertheless, its always better to be late than never. :rolleyes:

    Bring back the old behaviour (allowing silent and vibrate modes in the lowest position) and let the people choose the behaviour for the other 2 slider positions. If one of the upper positions is silent or vibrate, then perhaps skip it in the normal mode. Customisation all the way!
