    I thought I knew it all. Not so. Thank you SO much — as ever.
    Most appreciative. 🤗

    When clicking on the time , the Control Panel appears , but the ‘Do Not Disturb icon’ does not appear. Two other Widgets appear, Weather Forecast and Calendar. Scrolling to the bottom of the Control Panel, if I click’Edit Widgets’. there is not a ‘Do Not Disturb Widget to add. Truthfully, I did not add these Widgets to my Co user’s Control Panel either. I can get Siri to launch the ‘Do Mot Disturb’, but there is not a time set option.

    I do not think I am misunderstanding your directions

    Darrell: Control Center and Notifications Center are two different things. You are clicking on the Time which gives you the Notifications center and widgets. Click on the Control Center icon as I show at 0:54.

    I am sorry, I just re-watch the video and saw my mistake. I am not able to bring up the correct panel that has ‘Do Not Disturb’ on it. I apologize for my mistake

    I thought of using Do Not Disturb because one of my family members won’t stop calling over Face Time. One time she said the message was an emergency and it interrupted me, and her message was about how to beat a Candy Crush Level.
    I don’t know if her saying it’s an emergency to talk to her will override Do Not Disturb but it overrode my app. I hope it doesn’t, although our family had 5 true emergencies in 2020.

    Vicki: If someone calls you twice within a few minutes, it overrides DND.
