Persistent little bugger, isn't he?

I wonder if you could just stop the music playing somehow instead of trying to kill the app.

When my bluetooth/headset disconnects Slacker usually pauses automatically. Sometimes it doesn't though, so the best solution I have found is that on my exit task of leaving car mode I set the media volume to 0, that way if any music does continue playing at least it I am not going to hear it

This is not possible in Tasker, but you can do it using this app. It works great and I have used in on several phones and have been using it since it was in alpha/beta testing.

I just got an Atrix last night and bought Tasker. I downloaded several profiles and put them on the sd card in the phone but when I try to import them with Tasker they don't show up. What is the correct path or folder on the sd card to put the profiles in? I tried to make my own but just can't get it right. The downloaded one should do everything I want with some adjustments so I would rather use them.

Thanks,
Tom

/sdcard/Tasker/profiles should do it.

It's worth using the step throughs on the wiki to learn how to create profiles and tasks. I found it very useful to start that way.

Has anyone else done a "chime on the hour" task? I did try the walk-through for the one at the wiki, but it's from a much older version of Tasker, because some of the tasks (Variable Inc in particular) don't seem to exist, so I can't get it to work. It is a pretty useless task, but it's more for my amusement than anything else, so has anyone got an idea for me?

Could somebody show me these profiles?

When headphnesplugged in, start music app (stock) and start playing a random song, and when headphones unplugged pause music?

Also: when wall charger plugged in automatically go into vibrate mode?

And: when inrange of my house enable wifi disable bluetooth 3g and gps if enabled?

I have been trying to figure these out. I already figured out enable gps on maps and navigation auto and turn off on exit.

for wifi, use a 'when wifi near' and enter ssid of your home wifi. I then use Widgetsoid and use that as the 3rd party plugin to disable

Context: Headset plugged
Task: Media - Music play, select a file to start with
Exit task: Media - Music stop

Not sure how to start a random song. Another option is to just launch the music app instead of using the music play task. I don't personally have any music files on my phone (I use Slacker and Pandora for all my music) so I don't know if the music app will automatically start playing when you launch the app.


Also: when wall charger plugged in automatically go into vibrate mode?

Context: Power - AC
Task: Audio - Silent mode - vibrate


And: when inrange of my house enable wifi disable bluetooth 3g and gps if enabled?

Context - Wifi near - enter SSID of you home Wifi network
Task: Misc - GPS set to off, Net - Mobile data 2G/3G set to 2G only, Net - bluetooth set to off


I have been trying to figure these out. I already figured out enable gps on maps and navigation auto and turn off on exit.
That should work

Just installed Tasker today and looks like I have a LOT of reading to do. But to get me going, hitting a question I'm hoping someone knows the quick answer to:

I set up a gps on/off for apps like 4Square, Checkpoints where it turns on when I run the app & and exit task to turn gps off.

I tried to use it for Waze (a community map/traffic program), but everytime I changed the current screen app (say to my music app) it shut off gps.

Instead I make a task that activates when I plug in my headphones (connected to cassette adapter for the car) to auto turn on gps/bluetooth/brightness to 100%/run Waze, run Astro Player. I did see I can't kill the tasks, but I do turn off gps/bluetooth/lower brightness when I unplug the headset.

Does my 4Square/Checkpoint rule conflict with the headset profile? IE, since the headset is in (gps on) but none of the apps in rule 1 are on (gps off) - does it do a conflict? I assumed an exit rule literally is when the app was on screen and now isn't. So, in theory if I have the headset in AND run 4Square - then when I exit 4Square gps will shut.

Anyhow - in today's test, I noticed that GPS was turning itself on & off constantly. Will reboot & try again tomorrow.

I did notice "if" rules in there, so I don't know if I have to some something like turn off unless other rule is running or put some sort of turn gps off in 30 minutes or something like that.

Lots of reading & playing to do!

It isn't anything you'll make use of completely right off the bat. Start slowly and make sure complex profiles work properly. It sounds like you have profiles stepping over each other.

When you have an app that activates GPS it has to be open on the screen. It takes some work to get around it, otherwise GPS turns off as soon as you open a different app.

For example: I have a car profile that sets a variable %CAR=1 when my car profile is engaged. When %CAR=1 GPS is on. I have several apps that turn GPS on when used like maps, facebook, redbox, etc but an exit task only turns GPS off only if %CAR!=1.

Just let me know if you need more help setting things up.

Interesting. Sounds like a great way to learn variables!

Ok - added a Variable add %HEADSET=1 when I plug in my headset.
Exit task - Variable Clear %HEADSET

On my gps tasks which fire when certain apps are launched, I turn GPS on when they are on, and set the exit task to turn GPS off if %HEADSET ~ 1.

Giving it a shot today.

Odd, I would have thought that an app exit task would only fire when the task was on the screen & you moved away - not a task that is checked all the time.

If it finds it, it will turn wifi on. However, wifi will not stay on with this profile alone, so I created this second profile:

The context is "Wifi Connected" to my home SSID. The two tasks are "Wifi set to on" and "Variable set %HOMEWIFI to 1". The end tasks are "Variable Clear %HOMEWIFI", "Wait 5 minutes", and "Wifi set to off".

This turns wifi off if the home SSID is missing for over five minutes. I do this so it doesn't turn it off if I just run out to my car and it looses the signal temporarily. This should take care of your wifi issue (and 4G will toggle off if Wifi is on). I don't know how to toggle between 4G and 3G.
I'm confused on this.

How can you use "wifi near" to turn on wifi?

Doesn't your wifi need to be turned on, in order to poll available networks?

When you choose wifi near as a context there is an option to toggle wifi, make sure that is checked. Then tasker will briefly enable wifi, check for networks in range, then disable wifi.

Only way I've figured out how to is to use the "Music Stop" command followed by the "show homescreen" command

Double Twist may have a setting that launches it when you connect to BT that you may need to disable.

Default Car Dock / iHeart Radio / Navigation

I just downloaded the Tasker app from the developers website and would like some info on how to do something, if it is possible.

I have a Droid 2 (R2D2, if it matters) and when I put it in the Car Dock it automatically loads the Car Dock App (which is fine by me) because i use Navigation as my "Added App". What I would like it to do also is to load iHeart Radio app as well, I have iHeart set to load the station I like automatically as well so in theory I want it to Start iHeart, play the station I have preset it to play AND load the Car Dock App like it already does, and when I pull it from the dock I would like it to kill Navigation and iHeart and go back to the home screen. Can I do all this and can someone explain (step by step, please) how to set that to do it if it is possible, as I am still new to Tasker, so far I love all the options it has but it is a bit overwhelming until I get the hang of it too.

BONUS: Also sometimes iHeart stops playing the station when it is running in the background is there a way to make it auto restart the station without bringing it to the foreground again, as I can't really do that safely while driving, unless I come to a stoplight or something like that...

AND DOUBLE BONUS... Navigation's turn by turn directions are still being read while I am on the phone (I use Speaker phone thru my car stereo) is there any way to turn them off while in a call and have them turn back on when the call ends, I don't know if iHeart plays still while in a call but I would also like for it to mute while in call if it does and is possible.

Thanks in advance... J

Is there a way to make it to that when I'm car docked and I own navigation, mobile data turns on, but turns off once I get my driving directions? I was thinking maybe set the 3g to sty on for 45 seconds. But gps takes different times to lock. What's the best way to do this?

For the first one, is it possible to make it say the name of the person who is calling? Because mine just says the number...

I would insert a wait context of 5 min, that way you get a good gps lock and the directions you need, then add the disable 3g context.

I have a profile with context car dock, and navigation app cause mobile data to turn on, wait a minute and turn off. I tested it in the tasker app, and mobile data turns on fine and it works.

But when I try to open the nav in the car dock app it just wont turn on mobile data. Any ideas?

Is it possible to have a 'general' profile that runs several contexts at once? For instance I have a bluetooth profile that switches off bluetooth when it realises it isn't connected anymore, but also want a profile for keeping the screen on with certain apps and a few other things which at the time of writing I've forgotten what they were lol.

I don't really want to have to have loads of profiles for each thing but think I will, as don't the contexts where together as a 'and' status?

Hope this makes sense

If so can you point me on how to set up.

Thanks in advance
I don't know about stopping them from coming to your phone, but you can turn off the notifications at pre-determined times. For instance, I have a profile that turns off my notifications tone so text messages do not bother me from 10 pm to 7 am, yet the ringer stays on in case I get a call in the middle of the night that needs to wake me.

Ugh... my profiles disappeared! Looks like I get to start all over.

Next time I'm backing them up.

Create a new profile with the context from XX time to XX time (put in the times you want)
then task option is Notification Volume, and set the level to zero
Then create an exit task and turn the volume back up.

I actually created two tasks and called one Notify vol up and one Notify vol dwn with each of them with the correct volumes...

Hope this helps.....

Just downloaded Tasker a short while back and am using it to start mobile data through Widgetsoid and sync emails every hour for a duration of 3 minutes, then it shuts down mobile data and sync and continues to do this every hour on the hour.

Doing this sure has saved my battery, I never saw the sense of having mobile data on and auto sync on every minute of the day while the phone is in my pocket and I am not even looking at it.

Great program, now trying to think up other tasks that it can do for me.

I've been having some serious issues with using Tasker's lock feature (the one that utilizes the pattern lock).
I have three profiles setup for this. Home, Class, and Car, where the lock is supposed to be deactivated, and then reactivated when I leave.

However, they are never consistent. Tasker will recognize that I have entered the class or home profile, and deactivate the lock. But then, later, the lock will activate again, and no amount of entering/exiting or enabling/disabling the profiles will get it to deactivate the lock! I then have to restart the phone to get Tasker back on track.

Anyone have a tip on a way to remedy this problem? Thank you.

The only time I had this happen was when I had 2 profiles stepping over each other. I made a icon on a screen where I can turn on and off lock. I leave it off at home but away profiles turn it on. You should also be able to turn Tasker on and off without having to restart your phone.

I'm on my phone or I'd tell you how in steps.
Create a profile where it detects that you docked. Then create a task that does what you want it to do. I know that may not help but here's something that can.

This page will show you step by step instructions on setting things up on your phone. If you follow through some of these, setting up a Dock profile will be a no brainer. You'll also see some things here that give you ideas.

Can tasker be used with google voice?

google voice can be placed on a schedule for incoming calls not to forward but not for text messages.

I would like to know if their is a way to make changes to incoming gv text messages. eg. on a time frame not to notify, forward to email...

Tasker sure is powerful, it can even start fires! Hopefully you don't get in trouble.

Hey, guys!

1. I'm still trying to figure out how to make the ringer volume go down (for example by half) when I pick up the phone. (HTC Desire has this feature embedded, but I'm on Oxygen now =)
Is it possible?

2. Moreover, stock HTC Desire can mute the incoming call when you turn the phone over. Is it possible to do the same with Tasker?


Thanks! A step-by-step guide will be really good =)

For some reason at the moment, when I plug my phone to charge at night and my sleep profile kicks, every now and then it lights up. I've been looking at adding a situation for turning the display off with the power button but can't find the option.

Not sure why it keeps lighting up, nothing appears on screen and I always turn the display off with the power button

thanks for the help on silencing the incoming text from google voice.

I also created a profile on a schedule time to remove the google voice text notification on the notification bar. This way any text comes in from google voice, the first profile silences it and the next profile removes it from the notification bar. This way i can keep my google voice text(work text) from notifying me.
It also silences regular texts but it still provide a notification via vibrate.

Anyone want to know how i set it up let me know.

I'd be interested in finding out the answer to stuarta's problem of the phone lighting up at nght because I have the same problem. It seems to do it randomly and I can't think of a cause.

After 2.0.1 I think AdamG removed the Oxygen settings, in CM7 it's in the CM7 settings section. Oxygen also lost the trackball wake function, which is mostly why I stopped using Oxygen.
