    Remove Red/Green Indicator from If/Then/Else when Local Variable present

    Tasker Pro · 0 · Posted

    Anytime there's a local variable name present anywhere in an If/The/Else statement - the red/green indicator will never EVER light up correctly.

    Including and even when using the step-Play icon to go through the Task step-by-step.

    Therefore the red/green indicator should never show up whenever a local variable name is present in the comparison. It just creates clutter and confuses people newer to Tasker.

    For those people who have used Tasker for a while - although we've become accustomed to just ignoring it, with a solution so simple, that shouldn't have to be the case.

    I guess the ultimate suggestion

    Run Log Enhancement: Split Screen Real Time Animated Flow Chart

    Henry · 0 · Posted

    To get a better sense as to how your complex structures operate it would be great if run log could be somehow visualized through live animated flow charts. Would be able to debug quicker, make improvements quicker, and able to create and understand more complex systems. The whole awesomeness of Tasker is after all making programming easier and it could also break barriers as to how complex things could be made by making the creation process easier.

    Toggle Use Motion Detection as a Set Tasker Pref action

    greg · 0 · Posted

    Since the "Use Motion Detection" preference comes with a warning when using BT or Wifi near states, I'd like to only enable it when i need it, and automatically disable it when the profile i need it for is finished.

    Selecting lines of code

    Paul Thornett · 0 · Posted

    It's quite tedious selecting lines of code with a finger. It seems to me that the slightest movement while executing a long click in order to select the first of a block of lines results in that line not becoming selected. Subsequent lines are, of course easy to select and deselect once that first line has been successfully selected. A little square box in the margin against each line could be ticked or unticked to cause the selection or deselection perhaps?

    Disabling and enabling lines of code in Tasker

    Paul Thornett · 0 · Posted

    I am forever disabling various lines of code, then enabling others (I imagine I'm not alone in this!). This could be made more efficient by simply toggling the status of enabled and disabled lines in a single action. This would save quite a lot clicks over the course of a day.

    Always-on screen UI menu item

    greg · 0 · Posted

    I use Vysor so i can edit using a computer.  The only minor annoyance is that I have a display sleep setting on my phone for 2 minutes under normal circumstances (sometimes i need more than 2 minutes to think before i keep adding stuff lol).  Of course, we are unable to modify 'display on' settings for Tasker using a Tasker profile itself, so can there but a UI checkbox item to force display always on when Tasker is active and return to previous display sleep setting when Tasker is not active on screen?

    A way for Tasker to indicate un-named Profiles

    Tasker Pro · 0 · Posted

    After a while of using Tasker and accumulating many Profiles - most folks end up with a mix of user-named Profiles along with Tasker-named (which are un-named) Profiles.

    Those un-named Profiles don't show up in %PENABLED or %PACTIVE and cause a bunch of other issues.

    There should be an option to indicate un-named Profiles when viewing the list in the Profiles Tab.

    After discussing in a thread on reddit the most popular (and simple) option idea was to put Tasker-named Profiles in italics in the Profiles List.

    Doing so could of course be an option in Preferences.

    Colour Coding Tasks

    Soumesh Surendran · 0 · Posted

    Hi João,

    While using Tasker, I kind of felt that if there was an option to colour code the related tasks, then it would be really helpful for people like us to easily identify the related tasks.. For Eg : if I use a task to show wifi notification using AutoNotification and I add the cancel wifi button function to it, then the cancel wifi functionality is implemented using another profile right? Which will have a cancel wifi task to it.. These tasks if colour coded like having the same colour blue or something then it makes easier for us

    Misc JavaScript improvements

    Richard Kemp · 0 · Posted
    • Currently "perform task" from JavaScript is asynchronous only and task results are unavailable. It would be good to the option of having a synchronous version which returns results as an additional option. Sure, it's not included now for a reason. But it would be good to have the option even if it would just fail when you e.g. run a task with another JavaScript action in it.
    • Currently plugins are not usable. I can see this being basically impossible to address from within JS directly, so perhaps the first point is the best solution here.
    • Update JS library to include

    Add contact card URI to types that can be returned in a Test Phone action

    Tim Lewis · 0 · Posted

    I have the following task that is executed to open the contact card for a specified contact. A1: Test Phone [ Type:Contact Thumb URI Data:%acnumber Store Result In:%cid ]  A2: Variable Search Replace [ Variable:%cid Search:/photo Ignore Case:Off Multi-Line:Off One Match Only:Off Store Matches In: Replace Matches:On Replace With: ]  A3: Send Intent [ Action:android.intent.action.VIEW Cat:None Mime Type: Data:%cid Extra: Extra: Extra: Package: Class: Target:Activity ]  However, this only works if the contact has a photo associated with it. If no "Contact Thumb URI" exists for a given contact (i.e. there is no photo associated with the contact), then the "Test

    Base Project Vars/Scenes/Tasks Only

    Somesh · 0 · Posted

    An option in the settings to Enable/Disable Project-Only Elements.

    The idea is that when this option is turned on, while in the menu for selecting the required Variable/Scene/Task, only the ones in the current project will be shown rather than showing all the Variable/Scenes/Tasks available in the whole.

    This would come very handy for people with large number of projects so that they don't have to search within a large number of other Vars/Scenes/Tasks to select the one they desire.

    Grouped tasks.

    R. Tyson Vance · 0 · Posted

    I have several groups of tasks that work together I would like to be able to select them as a group and have that group collapsible for easier management of tasks and make for a cleaner default task screen.

    Additionally it might be nice to be able to turn on or off all grouped tasks rather than having to use several on and off tasks.
