Hi everyone,

I just bought Tasker (waits for everyone to say "Finally!" ), so I'm going to ask some pretty obvious questions:
  • Firstly, how do I change from the UI form of adding a profile to the coding form?
  • I'd like to create a profile that warns me (by notification sound or similar) that my alarm is active if I have a calendar entry that will be occurring in the upcoming 10 minutes. Is there any way of automatically turning said alarm off if this occurs?
  • I've created a simple profile using the UI that silences my phone whenever I have an active calendar entry. However, when I press volume up or volume down (SGS), at least in the test mode, it un-silences my phone. Is there a way of getting a confirmation box pop-up asking me whether or not I really want to un-silence my phone?
  • I looked at the Tasker Wiki site, and have absolutely no idea where to start. Where can I go to find information on what each piece of code that I see on the forums actually means?

Thankyou =)
God bless.

  • Battery Level : Adjusts random settings, depending on my battery level.
  • Block Calls : When certain numbers call, tasker will answer\end the call (So it will stop ringing, and they won't get to my voicemail)
  • Block Work Calls : When my work calls me (to ask if I can come in), I let it ring for 5 seconds before hanging up (5 seconds, so I have time to decide if I want to answer - and it does not send the call to voicemail).
  • Change Wallpaper Based on Weather : Cool new profile I made today. It checks Accuweather, and when it sees certain keywords ("Rain" "Cloudy" "Sunny" "Clear") it will change my wallpaper, accordingly.
  • Church : Silences my phone, makes my display not time-out, and opens my Bible app -- (Based on calendar events)
  • School : Silences my phone during school (Based on calendar events)
  • Find Phone (GPS) : When I text my phone a keyword, it will respond with the GPS coordinates, battery level, etc.
  • Find Phone (GPS) P2 : When I text my phone another keyword (when my phone is stolen), it will lock the phone, will end any current calls, and will also leave the GPS on (so I can keep tracking it).
  • Find Phone (Ring) : This is for when I lose my phone at home. I text it, it will play a ringtone.
  • Face Down Silent : This is for the "Find Phone (Ring)" profile. When I find the phone, I just flip it over to turn off the ringtone\song
  • GPS Turned On : Turns on the GPS when certain apps are opened
  • Incoming Call Brightness : Turns my brightness to MAX, for 15 seconds. (Pointless)
  • Charging : Random settings for when I am charging my phone
  • Wifi Starter\Stopper : Two profiles that will turn on\of and connect wifi, accordingly (by determining my location via my network connection\location) (this has been combined with my "Home" profile)

Added on 04/09/11
  • Work : When Tasker sees that my calendar says I am at work (this is easy to do because I have a part-time job, so I always post my shifts on my calendar), it will put my phone on vibrate - and force WiFi off, and will also lock my screen.

Added on 04/13/11
  • Home : When I am home (It determines this by using my location, via the network connection) it will turn my volumes up. After 11pm, when the home profile is active, it will turn my phone to vibrate. [new: it also turns on my WiFi] [new:new: it now activates Browsix and Remote Notifier for Android]
  • Change Wallpaper - Timed : I have a set of 5 wallpapers (they are the same wallpapers, just different color), and they change\alternate every 20 minutes.
  • Alarm : I have uninstalled Gentle Alarm, and replaced it with Tasker. Self explanatory profile. (*Altered this profile, so that it will only trigger if the phone is charging (I periodically will get up before the alarm will go off, and unplug the phone - forgetting that the alarm is still set*) (Rather dodgy when it came to actually triggering - missed a class due to the alarm\profile not sounding\activating. I am now using the stock HTC clock\alarm app)
  • Silent Boot : This profile will silence my phone prior to turning off or restarting, which then silences the annoyingly loud boot-animation.

Added on 04/14/11
  • Reminder - Trash : At 9pm every Wednesday night(repeating every 15 minutes) IF my "Home" profile is active, I get a pop-up reminding me to take out the trash. The pop-up also gives me an option to end the reminders if I have taken the trash out.
  • Airplane Mode : If my cell signal drops too low, airplane mode will be triggered. Every 7 minutes, the profile will stop - if there is still low signal, the profile will be reactivated. (I am having a hard time getting this to work... It seems to randomly activate, even though my signal-strength variable context, is set to only activate when my signal drops below 25% - I will have a few bars of 4G, and this profile will activate)
  • Headset Plugged In - Menu : I finally got around to making this basic profile, that will open a menu containing Amazon MP3 (I have my music in the cloud) Pandora, and TuneIn Radio Pro whenever I connect a headset.
  • Headset Plugged In - Settings : When I plug in headphones, certain settings will change\adjust (such as volumes, screen rotation, etc.)

Added on 04/15/11
  • Applications - Games : When I launch any\all games, my media volume is set to 4 (what I almost ALWAYS set it to) (got rather annoying, and wasn't very useful)
  • Applications - Games Night : When I launch any\all games between 11pm and 9am, the media volume is 0
  • Applications - Music : When I launch any\all music playing applications, the media volume sets itself to 12
  • Applications - Video : When I launch any\all video playing applications, the media volume sets itself to 9 - and autobrightness is forced.
  • Charging - Home Night : When charging my phone at home (determined by "cell near"), from 12:30am-8:30am (basically when I am sleeping): all sounds are silenced, brightness is brought down, and auto-rotation is turned off (If I look at my phone while in bed, and while it's charging, the screen-rotation is always wacky)
  • Charging - Not Home : When I am charging my phone NOT at home (determined by invert of "cell near"), all of my volumes are turned up (If I am not charging my phone at home, it will usually be charging somewhere AWAY from me - so I need the volumes up)
  • Grandparent's : When I am at one of my grandparent's house (determined by "cell near"), the phone connects to their WiFi, and my ringer/notification/media volumes gets adjusted.
  • Grandparent's Night : Same as above, just the volumes are on silent\vibrate
  • Grandparent's (2) : When I am at my other grandparent's house (determined by "cell near"), the phone connects to their WiFi, and my ringer/notification/media volumes gets adjusted.
  • Grandparent's Night (2) : Same as above, just the volumes are on silent\vibrate.

Added on 04/28/11
  • Android Notifier : When my "Home" profile is active, Tasker will enable the Remote Notifier for Android service. Remote Notifier for Android, simply sends notifications to your computer, when you have an incoming call, SMS, MMS, or when your battery is low, etc.
  • DropBox Sync : I have Tasker and Dropbox Sync for Tasker/Locale setup so I can backup certain files on my SD Card, with Dropbox, at a specific time. I am currently working on a way to get this Dropbox plugin to allow me to upload a AutoHotKey script to Dropbox, where AutoHotKey on my computer will be able to then read\activate the script, which will pause iTunes when I have an incoming call).

Added on 05/03/11
  • Disneyland : When I am at Disneyland (Based on calendar event - currently working on getting the "cell near" info setup, which will take quite a while due to the massive size of the park), forces Wifi off, GPS off, all plugins off (in case another task has them on, or if they are left on accidentally), turns off mobile data (trying to get this to only happen when the display is off), and also drops the display timeout to 12 seconds. I am currently thinking of other battery-saving settings that I can have this profile change. Suggestions?

Added on 05/04/11
  • Flashlight On : When I flick my phone\wrist to the right (holding the phone at an unusual angle), the HTC Flashlight will open and turn on.
  • Flashlight Off : When I flick my phone\wrist to the left (holding the phone at an unusual angle), the flashlight will turn off and close.

Added on 05/12/11
  • Display Rotation - On : When I open certain apps, display rotation will be "on", allowing me to rotate the screen.
  • Display Rotation - Off : The opposite of above ^^
  • Headset Plugged In - Settings (Charging) : When I connect headphones\speakers to my phone while it is charging (98% chance that I will be in the car when I do this), I turn the keyguard off along with other settings. When I am not charging and I connect headphones, then the keyguard is on (because it will typically be in my pocket)

I love Tasker.

Some Tasker jargon for you: Profile and Task

There is a button for Task at the bottom. You can create a new Task here without creating a profile first. However, you eventually need a profile or a widget to activate the Task.

Tasker cannot have something occur prior to a calendar entry. This has been asked before. It can activate a profile when the calendar entry becomes active, but Tasker does not scan your calendar entry in advance to see what will happen in the future.

As you have figured out, Tasker only activates settings when the profile turns on. It does not maintain settings, and you can still manually change them at any time.

What you are asking is complicated and might not be possible. You can have Tasker do certain things in response to button presses but 1) you'd have to nest that inside your other profile, which is tricky and 2) I'm not sure Tasker will block or override the default action (volume increase) when you press the button.

However, you could set your profile to repeat every X minutes. In this case, if you accidentally hit the volume button Tasker will turn it off again whenever it repeats.

Tasker doesn't currently have a video function. It can take photos in the background though.

Are you sure it has anything to do with Tasker?

If you disable Tasker does it still do this?

Once you confirm that is is Tasker, please post what your sleep profiles are.

Search the market for an app called "Volume Locker" by HourDB. It has a pop up like you are looking for. I have used it and it works great. It doesn't integrate with tasker as fast as I know, but it will accomplish what you want.

Thanks for that. I'll have a serious sit down and read the user guide in my uni break. Turns out I had all my profiles switched off - now I have my auto-wifi profile set on (). Is there any way of having a set alarm as a context?

Glad to help!
If you (or anyone) would like the step-by-step to set up ANY of the profiles I use, I would be MORE than happy to post them (didn't post them initially, because that would have taken WAY too long )

Do you put church/school/work on your calendar? If so, do you just use different calendars to differentiate between silent and non-silent events? Or are these desktop widget shortcuts? I'm trying to think of a better way than having different calendars to differentiate between silent and non-silent events, but it's not a major issue.

God bless =)

Default Speak texts to bt?

I've setup a profile that speaks my text messages while blue tooth is on. (It's a bt earpiece). Is there a way to make the voice come through the earpiece? Right now it comes through the phone.

I always have my phone on silent so I also created one that actually takes it out of silent mode only when my lady calls but stays silent for any other calls, then after the i answer it, it goes back to silent mode.....shweeet!

You need an A2DP compatible bluetooth.

I just edited the church\school ones, to go off of calendar events (Previously, I had them activate depending on the day\time - but I figured, if I have a day off from school, I'd rather the profile not activate).
I have them all on my main calendar, but I have the profile activate when an event is happening that is titled "Work" or "School" or "Church".

Would you mind sharing this one? Been wanting to do something like this as well, would be really helpful to use yours as a model...

CONTEXTS:
  • Time; 00:00 to 23:30 - repeating every hour.
  • [You can also have a context for battery life, so if your battery gets too low, it will stop checking the weather and what not]
TASKS
  • Variable -> Variable Set: Name: "%ZIPCODE" - Then in the "To" field, put in your zip code.
  • Net -> HTTP Get: Port="rss.accuweather.com/rss/liveweather_rss.asp?metric=1&locCode=%ZIPCODE"
  • Variable -> Split Variable: Name: "%HTTPD" - Splitter: "Currently:"
  • Tasker -> Stop: If: "%HTTPD2" is NOT SET
  • Variable -> Split Variable: Name: "%HTTPD2" - Splitter: ":"
  • Variable -> Variable Set: Name "%HTTPD21" To "Sunny" If "%HTTPD21 ~ *Sunny*" (make one of these tasks, for every weather type you intend to encounter. i.e "Sunny" "Rain" "Storm" "Cloudy" "Clear")
  • Variable -> Variable Set: Name "%HTTPD21" To "Default" If "%HTTPD21" does NOT equal "Sunny/Rain/Storm/Cloudy/Clear"
  • Variable -> Variable Set: Name "%HTTPD21" To "Night" If "%TIME > 20"
  • Display -> Set Wallpaper: Image "wallpapers/%HTTPD21.jpg"

To make this work, just have a folder in the root directory of your phone entitled "wallpapers" which will contain each of the wallpapers. Title each wallpaper with the corresponding weather that you have in your tasks (I believe it is case sensitive).
The "Default" one, just is a basic wallpaper that will be used, if none of the weather conditions are reached. The "Night" task\wallpaper, will be used after a certain time (In the tasks above, it will start at 8pm)

I love Tasker.

Headphones plugged in - Vibrate mode, media volume changes to 5 (to protect ears), display turns on (so I can quickly proceed to the media I was going to), auto-brightness turns on (for when I'm going outside and my normally dim display makes it hard to change songs)

....on exit - media volume changes to 0 and auto-brightness turns off


Incoming Call - In call volume goes to the max

....on exit - media volume changes to 0 (for when I was playing music and forget - the music continues to play, but doesn't blast when I hang up the call)


Received text - display turns on


App (Call confirm) - (on exit) - in call volumes goes to the max


Gmail notification - display turns on


USB Plugged in - display turns on, widgetlocker unlocks, status bar expands (to quickly access sd mounting - my default usb connection is "charge-only"), and after 10 seconds the status bar collapses again (in situations when I'm not sd mounting) and my device locks (widgetlocker)


Calendar notification - display turns on


App (Clock) - Load app (alarm clock plus) (so I can use the stock HTC clock/weather widget, hit the time and go to the alarm clock of my choice)


App (gallery) - load app (quickpic) (so I can go to the picture app of my choice when in the camera)


device shutdown - silent mode on (to silence boot sounds)

  • Airplane Mode : If my cell signal drops too low, airplane mode will be triggered. Every 7 minutes, the profile will stop - if there is still low signal, the profile will be reactivated. (*I am having a hard time getting this to work... It seems to randomly activate, even though my signal-strength variable context, is set to only activate when my signal drops below 25% - I will have a few bars of 4G, and this profile will activate*)
  • Headset : I finally got around to making this basic profile, that will open a menu containing Amazon MP3 (I have my music in the cloud) and Pandora, whenever I connect a headset.

Added on 04/15/11
  • Applications - Games : When I launch any\all games, my media volume is set to 4 (what I almost ALWAYS set it to)
  • Applications - Games Night : When I launch any\all games between 11pm and 9am, the media volume is 0
  • Applications - Music : When I launch any\all music playing applications, the media volume sets itself to 12
  • Applications - Video : When I launch any\all video playing applications, the media volume sets itself to 9 - and autobrightness is forced.
  • Charging - Home Night : When charging my phone at home (determined by "cell near"), from 12:30am-8:30am (basically when I am sleeping): all sounds are silenced, brightness is brought down, and auto-rotation is turned off (If I look at my phone while in bed, and while it's charging, the screen-rotation is always wacky)
  • Charging - Not Home : When I am charging my phone NOT at home (determined by invert of "cell near"), all of my volumes are turned up (If I am not charging my phone at home, it will usually be charging somewhere AWAY from me - so I need the volumes up)
  • Grandparent's : When I am at one of my grandparent's house (determined by "cell near"), the phone connects to their WiFi, and my ringer/notification/media volumes gets adjusted.
  • Grandparent's Night : Same as above, just the volumes are on silent\vibrate
  • Grandparent's (2) : When I am at my other grandparent's house (determined by "cell near"), the phone connects to their WiFi, and my ringer/notification/media volumes gets adjusted.
  • Grandparent's Night (2) : Same as above, just the volumes are on silent\vibrate.

I love Tasker.
Added MANY more tasks, since my last update ;p

I have a simple\basic question: For my 4 "grandparent's" profiles, is there any way I can combine them? At least narrow them down to 2 profiles? Could I put the "cell near" location for both of my grandparent's houses in ONE profile, or would that then require that BOTH of those locations\contexts are met before the tasks are carried out? (This seems to be a VERY basic question, but I am having a brain-fart at the moment)

ok...my brain melted by around page 3 of this thread...seriously...*brain leaks out ears*

try as I may I cant seem to find the answer I want, or maybes its in this thread in between all the other jargon talking bout other profiles that I glossed over it (and if I did, im sorry)

I want to set tasker up to put my data connection on (3G not wifi) on every 2 hours, sync my email and *IF* possible FORCE sync my Fancy Widgets weather..

I currently run the more basic "Settings Profile" and it turns my net on every 4 hours and syncs my email but the weather is hit and miss...its not controllable at all via settings profile...so I have to rely on its on refresh times, which quite often are hit an miss widely sometimes and I often have to manually sync it...which annoys me..

so can someone please help? I DID try myself...but I managed to get part way through and then lost my way lol

ALSO as a small thing I have winamp set to run automatically on Settings Profile, but it doesnt play automatically just comes up....can I set tasker to actually PLAY my last track automatically with winamp...kinda like what poweramp has for default..

Would you walk me through the one that turns GPS on when you open Maps?

I tried, following the below tutorial, but nothing happens. Also made one to turn on data when I open Mail. Nothing.

The Tasker icon is in the notification tray and the green check box is marked on each.

Any help appreciated. Here's the tutorial I followed. My screens match the screenshots ...

UPDATE: When the notification/status bar is pulled down, it says that no Tasker profiles are active. As I said, green boxes checked. Why not active?

The notification only shows tasks that are currently running, not the tasks that have a green check mark or not. So when your GPS profile is running (when you open Maps) the notification will show your GPS profile name.

As for wanting a walk through of creating a GPS profile, the link you provided does a fairly decent job of it already.

Once I get access to a computer (in the morning), I will gladly post the setup.

As for the poster having trouble with the GPS profile, read what Rob said.

What's making me crazy is that this looks like Tasker 101, yet I can't get it to work. I'm sure it's something simple and obvious ...

You might be able to use Synker (it works as a plugin for Tasker) to force syncing. It only works for certain things though.

I have a few questions,

One of my task is my "work" profile, which puts my phone on vibrate where at my work location, but I am trying to figure out how make exception to that rule that that a couple of my contacts can ring though as well as their text messages but just 3 people.

Also, I have set up a profile where when I am busy I can just press my long search button and a SMS is suppose to be sent to the caller but it doesn't seem to be working. I have the Mytouch slide phone and my genius button is suppose to be the button to press but it doesn't work. I am rooted so I don't know if that is the problem.

Last question does Tasker only work with the default text message program as I have handcent.

I see what is posted above but I need it simplified a little.

I have a bed time profile that is only active when plugged in, I have a loud one that is always active, and a 3rd one a work one that is active M-F from 8am-4:30 PM. I want them all off when the bed one is active, I want the timed one to overide the other 2 and then go back to loud one once done.

I have it set up and it is working great with one exception: I want a sound and blink the notification light. I can't get both to work at the same time, just which ever one is listed first. Anyone know how to do both?

I have a profile called auto sync that I use:

Context: Time 0500 to 2200 repeating every 3 hours
Task: Auto sync -> on
Wait 7 minutes
Auto sync -> off


I also use a second profile that turns auto sync on whenever my phone is plugged in and on my home Wifi

You can use an app called "Selective Silence" by ChainsDD that will allow you to have your phone ring from the callers you set regardless of the phone state (silent or ringer on)

I have a profile called auto sync that I use:

Context: Time 0500 to 2200 repeating every 3 hours
Task: Auto sync -> on
Wait 7 minutes
Auto sync -> off


I also use a second profile that turns auto sync on whenever my phone is plugged in and on my home Wifi


You can use an app called "Selective Silence" by ChainsDD that will allow you to have your phone ring from the callers you set regardless of the phone state (silent or ringer on)


Thanks I will look into that. I was trying not to add another app but to do it all with tasker.

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.
What is SSID and how to I find it?

Also do you guys have a way to turn my vibrate on when at the gym? I tried a location setting but it never really kicked in. I had it set to net only with a 300m radius and although it said it was activated it never changed the symbol on my notification bar. Or does Tasker just not change the notify bar icon unless you tell it to?

Also if you don't mind I have a battery saver profile enabled but I would like for my mobile data and data sync to turn on every 40 minutes and check my stuff for 5 min before shutting off again during battery saver mode. Do you have an idea on how to add this to the current task list?

Inside the profile that you want to use (not the one you want shut down, add the Task:
+>Tasker>Profile Status>(Name=Profile you want to shut down, and Set=Off)

It may take a long time to recognize a location if you do not enter that location with GPS enabled. You may find better responsiveness if you have the GPS turned on during your drive to the gym (also, change your gym profile to include a task that turns GPS off when you get there).

Setup the profile as you described, and insert
+>Tasker>Wait>*5min or 40min*
To make it wait in between checking.

I'm having a TERRIBLE time getting Tasker to obtain my actual physical address. The two thing on the Tasker wiki that claim to get the physical address are not working...

Anyone have something that works?

That's the name of your wireless connection, nothing to do with your phone.

Are you talking about the GPS identifying where you are?
