    The only way that I can think of is to use Tasker, but how you would do that is over my head as far as using Tasker goes.

    This article should give you a bit of a clue, though: How Can I Override Silent Mode With a Text Message? [Android]

    You can just leave off the step about the option for receiving a text message with the word "emergency".

    AFAIK, those sounds are all tied together. Texts are considered notifications, so if you set that volume, it affects all other notifications. Unless you find some wonder-app that can distinguish the difference, you are out of luck.

    If I understand you correctly, you want to control the notifications for each app independently. Is that correct? If so, don't go to the Settings icon. Go into each app (Calendar, email, SMS, etc.) separately, THEN hit the 3 dots up in the right, then select Settings>Notifications>check/uncheck. Depending on which screen each app is on, you may have to hit the Back Button to find Settings option.

    Apps don't always support turning off notification sounds. Another way of turning off notifications for something like email is to go into the email app's settings and choose "Silent" for the notification sound.
