When I enable my mobile hotspot the profile should recognize that mobile hotspot is running, but it won't activate the profile.
Anyone have any ideas?
For a profile with an app context that app has to be open on the screen for the profile to be active. Even if the app is running in the background Tasker won't recognize it.
