I tried to create a task where when I started "Car Mode", I would also light permanently the notification led in Blue color, so when driving I can check quickly if car mode is on and turn it off when car mode is off.
In Android 6.0 the action "Alert, Set Light" shows the detected available notification leds and I can use the action successfully, but in Android 8.1 (my new smartphone) the action was disabled, so I updated to the last tasker version and tried again. The option became available, but there was no notification leds detected, so I could
Could the sliders (SeekBars) used by Tasker actions be improve or made customizable in settings? I find it impossible to use the press-and-drag method -- they just don't move, and the click method is very hit-and-miss. Using the arrows is often impracticable when the value range is large since the arrows change the value by only +/-1. Also in some cases a "logarithmic" (actually "exponential") scale would be more appropriate, e.g. for setting a Beep tone frequency where getting somthing in the middle of the audio spectrum on a linear scale that goes from ~0 to 16000 is extremely awkward.
Android Pie supports notches, with that said it has special apps for handling notched displays. It would be useful if Tasker could activate any one of those apps and based upon the app is launched, turn on an overlay. Like maybe, I wanted as much screen as possible on Google Duo, Tasker would switch to the default notch setting. Then I could want to watch YouTube, Tasker would switch to the hide option giving me a uniform experience.
I noticed that the "/" character is used as a separator if one wants to specify multiple networks. Can it be done so that double-division sign is treated like a single division sign but as part of SSID?
The first profile detects via WIFI near if you are at a hotel and if so sets the variable Ort to 'Hotel'.
The second profile should trigger only when the variable Ort is set to 'Hotel'. However it seems to trigger without a reason (Hotel WiFi is not close because being at home or at work). This happens only a few times a day. I've attaced a filtered run log and the relevant part of the run log unfiltered as well.
The idea is in a task flow hold on untill something is changed or something is accomplished.
There can be an optional wait time specified for maximum time to wait.
Like in a task wait untill internet available, or wait untill a variable changed(although it is available in wait untill task, there is no option for maximum time to wait). Moniter something in between a task and proceed after it changed status.
Using multiple profiles can accomplish this but giving this option would really be helpful.
I'd like to be able to use the number picker in a scene for picking a time, but I don't want to have to scroll through every number. I'd like to be able to scroll by increments of my choosing such as 5, 10, or 15 to make it easier to pick a time
Would like some tasks/profiles to be exempt from logging. My Android SoC has a bunch of small home automation tasks to process every couple minutes, and as you can imagine, my log gets flooded pretty quick. Thanks much.
My Tasker automatically ends calls from some phone numbers presenting a same pattern (End call action if %CNUM ~ /*xxxxxx*/*yyyyyy*/). I would like to add newcoming patterns without having to manually edit this condition by opening Tasker. When a new pattern is detected and is represented by %blockcall for example in the detection task, I can add it by Set %BLOCKCALL : /*%blockcall*%BLOCKCALL (%BLOCKCALL would be the already blocked patterns /*xxx*/*yyy*/) but then I can't automatically modify the End call action's condition. I would like an action in the detection task that replaces other actions in other tasks or their
After activating the option in settings to show error message popups these are not very helpful. For example a popup tells me multiple times that a plugin is missing but I can't identify which one is not available. There are just numbers with links in the popup but clicking on the links make them show up in the dialer instead of leading to the profile or task with the problem.
As much as I love Tasker, this is not the social media app that needs to grab my attention. It is a tool that I use to automate my workflows.
I don't like the fact that Tasker seems to place notification badges on new actions. It creates annoyance after every update and it makes me annoyed at the new features (exactly opposite feeling to the one I wanted).
It would be useful if there was a way to disable that.
It would be nice to have a context and a variable for battery temperature. This could be used for warning the user on high battery temperature and also take appropriate actions (reduce brightness, activate powersave mode, etc. )
Requesting feature to make 2 calls merge into a conference call.
Here's what i'm trying to achieve here.
I have an expensive call plan which allows me to make unlimited local and international calls. The only way i can let my wife use it for international calls (without her having access to my phone) is to give her a local call, make another international call, and merge them into a conference and let her talk to her heart's content.
What i'm trying to achieve is to automate the conference call based on the sms so that she could do
I want to disable my 'work' alarm when my calendar has an event 'holiday'.
The task 'Cancel alarm' only opens the alarm app on my phone, but does not cancel it. Makes no difference which mode (disable current, by label, any). I have a Samsung Galaxy S9 with Android 8.0, alarm app v18.104.22.168.
PS: The task 'Set alarm' actually does work.
PS2: also plugin 'ClockTask' wont disable an alarm.
I have been enjoyed a paid version of Tasker for years and recently subscribed to your AutoApps. However, in the last few weeks, Tasker is often freezing. Also, profiles that previously worked are suddenly freezing (see screenshot for examples of both). I have been using Tasker on Oreo (Samsung Galaxy S8+, v. 5.2) for almost a year, so this can't be the source of the problem. When the problem appeared, I verified that Tasker is excluded from battery optimization. I also reinstalled and then upgraded to v. 5.6, but the problem persists.
