A Do Not Disturb (DND) policy is defined by creating one or more quantity and time-based delivery rules, which are applied to the contacts in the relevant segment when a plan is run. For example, allow a maximum of one delivery each day and up to five deliveries in a week.
See Managing segments and Managing plans for more about segments and plans.
Global DND policies
A global DND policy is one that is applied to all of the plans in all of your available databases. This means, for example, that if a potential contact appears in more than one database, a global DND policy that is set for one message per day, will be applied to all instances of that contact, in all databases. The global policy will also override a DND policy that is set for an individual database, which perhaps allows three messages per day.
If a DND policy is not set as global, it is only applied to the plans in the current database.
