I can't be the only person with the problem that you temporarily turn down the volume of your calls and texts (in a quiet place), and then three days later it's still quiet and you miss alerts.

Is there any way to adjust the volume only temporarily? Or, to put it a different way, is there a way to automatically reset the ringer volume to a predefined level each day?

There are several ways to get your volume levels back. Personally I like to use the IFTTT app to set my ringer volume to maximum when I connect to my home WiFi. (recipe)

If you want to fix your volume at a specific time, say, you can create a new recipe using the Date & Time Channel.

An option for you might be the Silent Mode Widget.

It puts a widget on your homescreen to silence / restore your volume settings with a single tap.

(I have not tried this app. There also appear to be several other similar apps that you might try instead.)
