S20+ issues with changing alarm / ringtones

Got everything copied over from my old phone, the only issue im having is trying to add my own ringtones / alarm sounds.  Everytime I hit the add button it tells me I have to go into the settings on my phone to give it permisson to add.  Yet I can't find anything in the settings that would allow permission to add them.

I am having the same issue! I've spent about 4 hours trying to figure it out.

Finally found a workaround for at least the alarms.  Copy the sound file you want and drop it into the alarms folder on internal storage.  Have a feeling that it'll be the same for ringtones.  Shouldn't be the solution though since hitting add should work

Best way around this is to go into your Samsung music player, find the track you'd like to use as ringtone or alarm, click ... button at the top right, click set as, then chose alarm or ringtone, done. Hope this helps!

How do you do that? I have a ringtone app, when I click on the sound I want it doesn't give me an option to copy it, just set it as a ringtone/notification/alarm, and when I do that it does transfer the name of the ringtone to my sounds but when I click on it the sound has been changed to one that was already preloaded on my phone from Samsung.

What worked for me was copying the sound from the external folder on my phone and then pasting it to the internal storage ringtone and alarm folder.  Otherwise I haven't found an easier solution yet.
