Why don't my routines run on a specific day despite being selected?

Hello,

I have 2 sets of routines that should activate in the evening of each day: one being to turn on my alarms for the next morning and the other to unmute my phone.

These routines are set up as the following:
  • IF time is 21:00 on (day before) THEN turn on (day afters alarms)
(example: IF time is 21:00 on Sunday THEN turn on (alarms needed for Monday)
  • IF time is 21:00 on M/T/W/T/F/S/S THEN unmute phone
However for some reason, these never work on a Sunday, despite Sunday being selected in the days where it should run. They work perfectly fine and well on every other day of the week, except a Sunday. The routine created for each is a copy from the 1st one created with only the day of the week changed (for the alarms routine).

Does anyone have any idea why selected routines never seem to want to run on a Sunday? I have others that turn on okay (battery protection and extra dim) but these two for some reason never turn on on a Sunday despite being active routines.

Thank you!

That's certainly a conundrum @celestials 

A routine that's set up to run on a specific time and date should activate as so , obviously. 

Maybe try deleting the routines that you've set up and reset them back up again to see if that makes a difference. 

I've set my Samsung Calendar to start my week on a Sunday. I'm not saying this will resolve the issue but maybe do the same if you haven't already. 

These Samsung Community Forum links maybe of some interest to you. 

If I can be of any further help then please don't hesitate. Take care.  😎

Thank you for your response, apologies for the delay as I wanted to see if anything else happens since posting which, strangely enough it has.

My routine for my Friday alarms which is set to turn on each Thursday at 9pm did not activate despite being active.

I've changed my calendar also to start on a Sunday so can't confirm if this fixes my Sunday alarm issue however now it's applying for another day, which is confusing me a lot!

Unfortunately no fix as nothing activated on Sunday. I have noticed that when I go to edit my routines Sunday is the only day off the week in red. I'm not sure if that had anything to do with it implying they can't/ wrong run then?

I have had these issues since the big UI6 update.SmartSelect_20231225_064811_Modes and Routines_1000008804_1703486891.png
