Mute Button for Appointments
Tick box when creating a appointment to make BC automatic set the smartphone to mute when the appointment is nearly started. And unmute it when the appointment is over...

it's a must! please bring up this feature soon. ;)
Andrew Rossetti commented
This is the only feature that I feel is missing from this wonderful app! The ability to set a "show me as" status or other indicator would be incredibly valuable and useful.
Todd Becker commented
+++++ Would love to see this added as a feature as well. I previously had a third party application that did an adequate job of this, but it is no longer available.
I would like to see this implemented by calendar and by 'Show Me As' status, so that I could say enable 'Do Not Disturb' for calendar A when Busy and Calendar B for Busy or Available.
Dan Cassidy commented
I'd like to add that this would be an amazing feature. It could potentially be tied to whether you are listed as busy or not during the event as well.
To change the system profile when a calendar entry
- reminder starts
The alarm clock com.android.deskclock allows to change the system profile with the alarm ringing. LineageOS (other OSs also?) offers to create system profiles that set volume, airplane mode and many others.
If BC2 offered the feature described above I could automatically change to e.g. Meeting profile (very low message notifications, no phone calls) when the event starts, Cinema profile (airplane mode, everything silent) when the reminder for that event starts.
That would help to prevent such embarrassing moments as a ringing phone in cinema or concert.
This is the only thing keeping me using Blackberry calendar instead of Business Calendar. I entered the same idea then saw this one.

I'd like to see this in the app to. BC2 is an great App and I love it. I know several people looking for an good calendar app which could solve complex and different calendars with more then one date at the same time and does have the feature do set the "do not disturb" mode
I made that functionality with Tasker. As an example I tell Tasker to watch the word "silence" in the event title and respond in consequence.
Mike Senkerik commented
You might be able to do that via the IFTTT app (apologies for other app refferencing).
It is basically a script hub that connects two apps/features to work on pre-determined actions - such as what you suggest.
i have an alternative to propose. Shush! app is great!
It would be great if I could setup automatic do not disturb options for an event. So it will auto mute the phone when the event starts and switch it back when it is over. Now I can do it only with external app.

Es ist doch besser nur ein Programm zu haben.
Bitte integriert diese Funktion.
Torsten Börner commented
Seit über einem Jahr wird das Feature verlangt.
Mein altes Nokia konnte das.
Jack Stone commented
Would be great!
Definitely would love this option. Not only mute ringing of incoming calls but also mute any notifications sounds. Should have option to permit vibrations to go through.
Could be linked up to the status busy, out of office, tentative or free and put the phone in silence mode or blocking mode (Samsung)

Eine Funktion im Termin oder generell, um das Smartphone beim Termin Lautlos schalten zu können.
Daniel Düsentrieb commented
want to emphasize the advice to use tasker for that. Maybe sometime later BC could support that
Bernd F. commented
Take a look at "Tasker". It's pretty forward to change phone audio depending on calendar entries. It's a bit technical though.
Please add an option to turn the phone into silent/vibrating mode during events of certain calendars, for example during business meetings. I imagine an on/off toggle like the already existing "show calendar" toggle would be easiest to use. The need for external programs would be eliminated.
