NB I use the standard Android messaging app - this may not work with others (eg Handcent, etc). Change the %PULSECOUNT variable limits to increase the number of reminders.

MissedCall will trigger a single reminder tone of user's choice 10 minutes after receiving a text IF the screen has not been switched on. Change the %CALLPULSECOUNT variable limits to increase the number of reminders.

MissedSMSandCallClear clears any outstanding reminders when the screen is switched on.

Please note that these aren't perfect, but they seem to work well enough for the moment - I'm sure I'll get round to tweaking them eventually. I believe future planned features for Tasker may include reacting to notifications being cleared, so these profiles may need changing in time..

Here you go - hope they're of some use / inspiration..

I have set up a great profile for my car bluetooth, most of the benefits are on the exit task, all I have to do is turn on Bluetooth when I get in my car. When I get out of my car my music is muted (since we can no longer kill apps), and if I am at home my WiFi is turned on (stays off if I'm not home), and a text is sent to my wife automatically to let her know I am at home at certain times. Also turns my bluetooth off if I am not back in the car within 10 minutes (so my profile is restored without turning bluetooth back on if I just turn off the car to get gas, etc):

Context:
-Bluetooth connected (specific to my car's bluetooth)

Tasks:
-Load app - Slacker
-Media Volume to 15
-Wifi off
-Variable set - %CARBLU to 1

Exit tasks:
-Media volume to 0
-Profile Status - WiFiHome set on
-Wait 2 minutes
-Wifi set on - if %ATHOME~1
-Profile Status - Home SMS set on
-Variable clear %CARBLU
-Variable clear %ATHOME
-Profile Status - WiFiHome set off
-Profile Status - Home SMS set off
-Wait 10 minutes
-Bluetooth set off - if %CARBLU !~1


This needs these 2 profiles to work:
1. WiFiHome
Context:
-WiFi near (Home network), need to enable toggle WiFi
Tasks:
-Variable set - %ATHOME to 1

2. Home SMS
Context:
Date - weekdays
Time -
Tasks:
-Send SMS - # and message

It looks like both of these will actually notify twice, since on the second iteration the pulse count is still not greater than 1. Also, the %SCREEN ~ off check doesn't mean that the screen hasn't been switched on, it just means that it is not currently on. I like both of these as they are straight to the point with no wasted steps.

Yes, the Missed Call event is returning, and will coexist with the Missed Call state.

Yes, you're quite right Uncle Mike. Looks like I forgot to take my medication again lol.

Thanks for the kind words.

Need help with Tasker. I am completely confused on how to set this up. Can someone who is familiar with Tasker set up a profile for me?

Simple profile.
It will be set up for location. I know how to do this.
I am able to set a different wallpaper for this.

I need the following:
Phone ringer: silent and vibrate
Chomp text message: volume level 4 and vibrate
Gmail: volume level 4 and vibrate

That's all I really need.

Thanks for the help

In Audio tasks there is a ringer volume setting and a notification volume setting (this will do chomp and gmail). There is also a Vibrate on notify and a Vibrate on ringer task setting.

Hi there,
I need some help with Tasker. I'd appreciate any advice on getting these 2 profiles/tasks to work.

I want my Home profile to:
1) enable Wifi when i'm near my SSID - got this done.
2) disable K9 syncing -
I tried to kill app K9, but that doesn't seem to work.
I also tried to disable auto-sync, and that didn't seem to work either.
I downloaded a K9 Data Killer widget, and could enable this...but i don't know how?


Any ideas? I just don't need my email to sync when i'm at home.

2) I set up a Driving Task Widget that
a) loads app Custom Car Home
b) waits 15 second and takes a call on speakerphone, if the phone rings

What i need to do is one of two things:
1) enable Safereader on Vlingo or
2) enable Driving Mode (on my Samsung Vibrant,this is under Menu/Settings/TexttoSpeech/Driving Mode)

Any help on these would be great.

I have one last question (for now). Under 3rd party apps -there are 4 available apps available...how does one add other apps to this?

Thanks in advance,

riskaa

Not sure how to do it, what I do know is that on Froyo you can not kill any apps anymore, we are all disappointed by that. Also auto-sync is for your Gmail accounts (gmail, contacts, calendar, etc). I am completely unfamiliar with K9 because I have my other accounts forward my mail to Gmail so I only use the Gmail app.

Any ideas? I just don't need my email to sync when i'm at home.

2) I set up a Driving Task Widget that
a) loads app Custom Car Home

1) enable Safereader on Vlingo or
2) enable Driving Mode (on my Samsung Vibrant,this is under Menu/Settings/TexttoSpeech/Driving Mode)

I am not familiar with Vlingo at all, there is another app that will read everything for you that works with tasker, I forget the name of it though. I will try to find it tomorrow. I am also not familiar with the Vibrant but there may be something in the audio tasks??

Any help on these would be great.

I have one last question (for now). Under 3rd party apps -there are 4 available apps available...how does one add other apps to this?

You can not. It has to be enabled by the app developer. If there is a particular app that you would like supported by tasker the best you can do is email the developer of that app and let them know.


Thanks in advance,

riskaa
I know that wasn't too helpful, but I'll try to get you some more info tomorrow

Hi there...
Thanks for your help so far..i had a couple of things to say.
1) I'm not on Froyo yet, so i should be able to Kill Apps...but it's not happening.
2) Is the other app you were talking about called say my name dessert? i've heard of something like that - maybe it's time for me to check it out.

3) re - third party apps...ok.

Another question - i saw somewhere, someone had a way that if your screen got locked, there was identity information, so whoever found your phone could call you....do you know anything about that?
Thanks,
riskaa

Yep, say my name is the one I was thinking of.

For the info I think the best way would be to get a lockscreen replacement and set it up to show the info, then enable it through tasker.

Default Real HDMI

Most of my profiles have already been mentioned. One of my simpler ones changes the camera button to an HDMI enable button (Real HDMI).

I use an app called Contact Owner that will put contact information on the lock screen - is that the one you were thinking of?

Set up into three widgets:

Work profile:
Wifi off, 4G on, bluetooth off, ringer off

Home profile:
Wifi on, 4g off, bluetooth on, ringer on

Car profile:
Wifi off, 3G on, bluetooth on, ringer on

Then one to augment the car profile with a choice to launch car panel
Context: bluetooth on, 3g on
Menu: launch carpanel

I have a big question though. I created a profile for slingplayer to turn off notification sounds when its playing. If you are familiar with slingplayer, you know also that any pop-up/etc will break the media stream. I currently have Handcent to pop-up new SMS's which will break the feed if i get a text while watching slingplayer. I can't seem to figure out how to disable that feature when slingplayer is open. Any ideas?

another question. I have swype and currently on reboot, you have to switch to another input and then back in order to be able to 'swype'.

I set up:
Context: Device boot
Tasks: Input method Select
Wait 20 seconds
Input method select.

I was hoping that if i didnt change the input within that 20 seconds then the menu would hang, i could make the selection and it would immediately pop up the 2nd input select but it didn't. It just killed the first select window and popped up the 2nd. How can I make it wait till I make the first selection then bring up the second selection? I went ahead and increased the wait to a minute for the time being.

That's actually a symptom of a Swype issue, it would be much easier to just upgrade your Swype.

Okay, trying to start using my droid more now that I'll be getting rid of my iphone. Someone told me to check out tasker to deal with a specific issue.

I get automated emails at night from various systems at work. Mostly, they just tell me that an automated job finished successfully. I don't want to be woken up for those. However, I get some emails alerting me when a system goes down or we have an outage of some kind. I need to get those ASAP.

Can tasker be used to somehow make emails from one sender NOT 'ring', where all other emails will ring normally? Or even make emails from one sender play some loud obnoxious ring no matter what the phone volume is set to?

If you're using the K-9 mail client, yes Tasker can do it. It can't do this for the native Gmail or email clients though. Your best bet with Tasker is to have the messages sent as SMS (to your SMS email address) and have it filter it there. You can have Tasker filter on sender and message body of the SMS.

I'm rather intrigued by this app so have got the trial version.

I went to Step-Throughs & How-Tos - Tasker Wiki

and downloaded the Car Home Profile from here.

Is there anyway to tell the profile how to select my Bluetooth device under Desire settings, I have my Blaupunkt Bluetooth paired with the phone but it shows as not connected. All I want to do is tell Tasker to connect to the Blaupunkt when in Car Mode. Any help would be appreciated (this is all way to complicated for me)

Tasker for Android

Buy from the developer directly. He makes more money that way.

I wish I knew that before I bought it. Is that generally true for most apps?

It would be true if most developers had a buy-it-yourself option available. Tasker is the only app I've seen that has buy-it-yourself combined with a free trial - the validation system is really impressive, and I'd like to see more apps implement it.

But yes, if you can buy an app from the developer rather than the market, the developer will get more money that way. Market takes a cut. Of course, in the case of Tasker, it's also more expensive through the market...so I imagine the author of Tasker ends up with the same amount either way.

For those wanting to enable SafeReader using Tasker, I haven't figured this out - the best I can suggest is to drop a "Tap to Speak" widget on your home screen and say "SafeReader On" when you start driving. That's what I do.

I'm having a play with tasker for the first time, but a lil stuck,
What i want to do is when i open an app that needs the internet is to 1st see if it can connect to my wifi and if not connect via my data connection.
Also
similar to above when i open the appbrain app i want it to connect via teh appropriate connection, but my problem is when i click on an app (that i have searched for for e.g.) the connection is turned off. Is it because i need to enable the Market app aswell?

Cheers.

All I want to do is tell Tasker to connect to the Blaupunkt when in Car Mode. Any help would be appreciated (this is all way to complicated for me)
If bluetooth is on Android should connect to any paired devices by itself. Tasker doesn't have a facility for connecting specific bluetooth devices.

If anyone figures out a way to get Google Voice SMS or Gmail working with Tasker, please post your profile here? I would like to use the SAY option in Tasker to read out the sender and subject line, or announce the message from and content, but those functions only work with the standard text app or K-9, neither of which I use.

Other that that missing function, I have everything else working perfectly. This is one of my favorite apps.

Just had a look in settings, I have Bluetooth on all the time and it says:

Blaupunkt paired but not connected
Pauls Macbook paired but not connected

I have to physically touch the connection that I want to connect to, which defeats the object of Tasker. Will have to look further into this, not much time left to get it sorted.

You need to buy this plug in:
Locale Password Lock Plug-in - Android app on AppBrain

Then you can enable the password lock and set your password using the tasker profile you already have.

Hello, I have an EVO which has HTC weather set to sync every 3 hours. Is there any way to force a sync at a specified time of day with tasker?

Then one to augment the car profile with a choice to launch car panel

I have a big question though. I created a profile for slingplayer to turn off notification sounds when its playing. If you are familiar with slingplayer, you know also that any pop-up/etc will break the media stream. I currently have Handcent to pop-up new SMS's which will break the feed if i get a text while watching slingplayer. I can't seem to figure out how to disable that feature when slingplayer is open. Any ideas?
anyone know how to use tasker to disable handcent pop-up?

In your settings is the password lock off? Mine only comes on when I send the text. Then I have a 2nd profile set up to turn the password lock back off after the password is entered correctly.

Codemonkey,

Thanks for the "missed" tasks. I've looked at the locatephone profile on the wiki but, I believe yours may be a little better. I hate to impose but could you post your locate and siren profiles?

Thanks!

I would, but I don't have any locate / siren profiles - I use Pintail for locating.

I have profiles for both of those that also password lock the phone if you would like me to post them. I got both of them from the tasker wiki, then made a couple modifications.

I have a question about how to prioritize tasks in Tasker.
I have my Home context set to turn wi-fi on, etc, but i also have a night profile, from Time A to Time B, where i have the phone on silent. and turn wi-fi off.
However, Tasker tends to run both profiles simulataneously (Home/Night)
Is there a way to set one to override the other?

Its awful simple, but most people (especially iFolks) seem jealous of it. I used the "Generic Toggle Widget" profile from the Tasker Wiki site and modified it. Here's what it does...

The widget label changes from Normal to Pillow. I got tired of the Display Rotation changing to landscape when I use my phone when lying on the couch or in bed. I want it to stay in Portrait for those situations. All my widget does is toggle the Display Rotation setting... simple but useful.

Edit: OK, so now I realize that this is technically a task widget and not a profile... Don't lynch me please.

Whichever profile activated most recently will have priority. If you're already home at Time A, then your night profile will kick in and its settings will be in effect. However, if you arrive home after Time A but before Time B, the Home profile will kick in and its settings will take effect.

Assuming your night profile is named 'Night', you could try adding the following context to your home profile to prevent it from becoming active (or remaining active) when your night profile is active:

Context: Variable Value %PACTIVE Doesn't Match *Night*

For this to work, you would have to have no other profiles with the word 'Night' in their name.

Default Need to pause

I have a profile that forwards my phone to home, when I'm home. Because I want it to do so only while at home, as close as possible, and forward back to phone forwarding as soon as possible after I leave, I have the context based on hooking to my SSID of my WIFI.

Now, the problem is that when I am home, and if I have my phone in my pocket and wander outside (I'm a wanderer ), it may forward to my voice, and 5 seconds later back to home. May do it over and over in teh right circumstances.

I'd like to be able to pause for 20or 30 seconds after it loses connectivity to my SSID, and if still not connected, then forward to my voice mail.

Here is my setup now:

Context: WIFI Connected to my SSID
Entry Task: Forward to home; Say "Fowarding phone home"
Exit Task: Forward to VM; Say "Forwarding to Google Voice"

Any suggestions on best method to accomplish the pause, or re-check before doing the forward away from home?

I'm having a problem with my Wifi profiles. I've tweaked it a few times, but I still can't get it to work right. I simply want my phone to keep wifi turned off unless I'm near my home or work connection, and to turn it on and connect when I am near one of those connections. I've had it set up several ways, using the Wifi near context, with "toggle wifi" on, with it off, with the task as turn wifi on, with it as toggle wifi, with an exit task and without. I'll think it's working for a while, then I'll be miles away from my connections and the wifi will be on, or I'll be sitting in my house and it won't come on. WHAT am I doing wrong? All my other profiles work like a charm.

I have only got mine to work right every time this way:

My "Car" profile has the following exit tasks:
-Turn wifi on
-enable Home Wifi profile
-wait 2 minutes
-Turn Wifi off - if - %ATHOME !~ 1
-disable Home Wifi profile
-Clear Variable %ATHOME


Home Wifi Profile:
-Wifi near (Home network SSID)
task: set variable %ATHOME ~ 1

I would:

Name the profile (if it's not already named)

Add two actions to the beginning of the exit task:

Wait 30 seconds
Stop If %PACTIVE Doesn't Match *profilename* (include the asterisks)

If the profile exits, and reactivates within 30 seconds, the exit task won't do anything.

If this doesn't work, let me know. I'm having a problem with using something very similar to exit a task, but it SHOULD work.

Has anyone come up with a solution to the battery charging issue with the Incredible using Tasker? Would be extremely grateful if I could somehow automate a bump charge or some other fix. Thanks.

Hi Uncle Mike...that works, although I was surprised in how it works. What it does is it recalls the Entry Task. So, it forwards to home again, even though it is already forwarded home. That is better than before.

I am guessing that not much can be done about that, because the task has exited, albeit not running all items in that, so it needs to re-enter. Maybe something else with variables, but I suspect I would risk having it ultimately get confused, so to speak, and possible not have the forwarding where I want it.


I'll need to do some searching in their documentation and see if I can find more of those variables.
