There's a new Tasker forum on AF! Under android discussion/ android applications.

Maybe the op could ask one of the mods to move this thread into that forum, in order to keep everything Tasker in one place..?

Looks like someone took care of it

By the way, guides can move threads too. Best not to bog down the mods with stuff

Where is vibrate? I found Play Ringtone but no vibrate.

The battery full notification is just setting a task, such as an alert, to run if the battery level reaches 100%. It may be helpful to limit repeats per a certain time.

There are two ways to disable the camera shutter sound with tasker, but neither is good. One is to silence the system sounds when the camera app is opened, and the other is to use tasker's built-in camera function. However, the easier way to disable the shutter sound is to...turn off the shutter sound. The vast majority of roms have that option. If you're rooted, you can disable the shutter sound in build.prop or replace the sound with a silent .ogg file in /system/media/audio/ui. It's "camera_click.ogg."

Hi,
I read a lot of things, but as a beginner, I don't understand very well how it works. I would like to start an action (task) when several events are true (date/time AND the device is AC plugged) but didn't find how to do that. I can start my script with date/time OR power condition is true, but not when both are true. Could someone help me, or give me a track to go ?
Thank you.
BR.

Lord knows I'm a beginner too, but if you long press on a context you can add another, in which case both contexts need to occur for the task to run. Does this help?

Hello Bruce73,
Yes, thank you, it helps a lot.
Another question how to trigger by Date/time ? Do I have to use the calendar or time from/to and one/several day(s) of the week or another method that I didn't see ?
Many thanks.
BR.
Daniel.

I want to run my Nandroid backup once a week on Sunday at 1 PM, only if the device is AC powered. So, with your answer I was able to do that, but I didn't find, like in other schedulers, a choice for Date/Time as a trigger argument.
I only found Time as a first context which seems to define a range of valid time for trigger argument and as a second context a Day choice, which is the same as the others schedulers (it permits to choose the day(s) when you want to start the task(s)), the third one being the AC powered condition.
For the starting Date/Time, I found that a little complicated, usually we can set a Date & Time to start an action, but this program seems to be very powerful, but not easy to understand.
Sorry for my English, but even in French this is not easy to explain .
BR.

I forgot: we cab also set a recursing appointment in the calendar and set it as a trigger argument (if possible of course).

Daniel.

Try setting the finish time the same as or 1 minute after the start time. If the task is linear (calls one external process) then tasker cannot kill it when the time context is no longer true.

It is exactly what I did and it seems to work well, but not a very intuitive approach . Do you confirm it is the right way to do that ?

Think of it like this, if your task is a repeating task.... Like flash LED.... Start time.... LED starts to flash. Stop time, LED Stops flash.

Task is one thing that goes start to end, start time... Task starts... Stop time, Task still going until finishes naturally.

Hey there!

I have a question as i still use older tasker version due to incompability issues with my device and soon i'm getting something new, the question is :

In older tasker for time-based profiles i had to split them into 2 profiles if they were day-breaking e.g. i needed profile to switch my phone to airplane mode from 23 till 07 and i had to do 2 profiles, one to take care of time from 23 to 00 and one to take care of time 00 to 07. Was it changed? so i can just use one profile?

Thanks for reply.

Can anyone please help?

I've set up tasker so that when I plug the headset in the phone it opens my music app, I have added more music apps ie Radio, video player etc, I read somewhere that I should see a menu pop up with what music app I want to open when the headset is plugged in but I'm not seeing it?

I've clicked on the tools button (bottom right) but I don't get or see any option for selecting a menu.

Anyone give me any pointers....I'm running Tasker 1.3.1

Thank you.

Go to Tasks / Alerts / Menu and set it up that way. I have two separate profiles, one with WiFi on and one with it off, which give me different choices.

I'm not sure what I did wrong, but my profile to switch the phone to silent mode at a particular day and time and back to normal sound mode a few hours later just isn't doing anything.

I used to use drocap but the ROM I'm running now has screenshots built in. I press power and tap home. Is this for your Triumph?

Yes, and the ROM info listed is still correct (I'm thinking about a switch, but haven't gotten the motivation to do it yet).

It's set to start at a specific time of a specific day of the week, if that's what you mean.

At this point having trouble getting the screenshot to display from the Dropbox link. Does it need to be in my Shared folder to work halfway right?

You should be able to post the screenshot directly to this forum. At least that's how I do it from Tapatalk. I've had that problem with Dropbox and I think it has to be in the Shared folder.

When I had it On, it turned on the silent mode at the wrong time. I thought I had simply turned off the profile at that time (sigh). The "documentation" for this program makes me feel like I have an IQ of about 6.

Found the font courtesy of another forum user.

Oh come on, your IQ must be at least 7.

Have you looked at the Tasker notification to see when your profile runs? It looks right to me.

When I tried to set it up last week, it ran hours before it was supposed to, putting the phone in silent mode well before 10:45.

For efficiencies sake I would put the day context before the hours so it only checks the hours on Sunday. Don't know why the time would be off. Is Tasker in a different time zone?

Hey Guys, is anyone successfully using Announcify with Tasker in here. I know you can read SMS with and caller names without Announcify but I like it because it can also read my google talk messages also.

Anyway at one time I had a Profile that would toggle Announcify for me when I'm connected to my bluetooth in the car. However, my phone died and I had to get a replacement so I'm starting over. For some reason now when my profile triggers it only toggles Announcify++ in the app and nothing else turns on so nothing gets read. Any help would be most appreciated thanks.

Hello everyone,

great thread, great ideas!
Since yesterday, i was trying to create, edit, play with Tasker... however i am getting reboots after phone calls (apex 3-4 seconds after the call is answered) and i cannot find the cause...

How can i find out what profile is causing the problem... ( i have quite a few... )
Is there a usual suspect for this?

Nothing that I know of. Do you have any contexts that activate right after a phone call is answered?

The only troubleshooting suggestion that I can give is to disable all profiles except one, call your phone from another phone, and see if the problem happens. If not, disable all but another, and so on. If that doesn't reveal the troublemaker, then it could be a combination of tasks, in which case...I think we'd need to know the contexts in order to help more.

Good luck.

Profile: When person incorrectly enters lock screen pattern

Task: Record Audio, Save Audio, Email Audio....

thanks in advance
As far as I know, it can't be done on current Android versions. Recording audio is only possible (without third-party software) when the phone is not on the lock screen, and when the lock pattern is entered incorrectly, the lock screen is still up.

No, no contexts before or after a phone call is answered.
Yes, i agree that i need to take them 1 by 1, but i was hoping for best practises

Thank you for you time

Thank you for you time
I've heard just a few instances of people running Tasker on old or slow phones that can't really accommodate it and having the app crash or the phone freeze. Are you running Donut on a Dream or anything crazy like that?

Hello,
I am using Tasker for the folowing:

1. Extended screen timeout when in one of many reading programs

2. In the evenings when I’m at home, dim the screen and set silent mode on

3. When I arrive home set wallpaper to a picture of me and my wife, set silent mode off, send variable to Transformer Prime that our location is “Home”. When leaving home do the equivalent of the reverse and set location to “City” on both phone and Transformer Prime. When in my work bedroom do something similar and set location to “Work bedroom”. When leaving set location to “work”

4. In the morning when at home, announce the next calendar item for the day (if any) and the time

5. Record audio when orientation is “down” and screen is on for meetings and quick notes. I store my phone in my pocket in the “down” position, as long as I turn the screen off before putting it away there are no issues.

6. Set my cars location when disconnecting from charging and not connected to wifi. A task widget is a simple button that displays the cars location on a map if needed. (At home the wifi always picks up before I park and disconnect the power so this task does not run in that case)

7. Send alarm to Tranformer Prime with a simple scene having a slider bar which tells how loud to play the alarm (when it is misplaced in the house).

8. A task widget which displays a simple scene showing current mortgage value remaining and percent paid off. Ability to add extra payments to any given month. Shows what the paid off date will be (month and year). Slider allows you to scroll into the past or future to see old or new values or enter extra payment values. Currently set up for two mortgages. Interest rate is not displayed, but there is a separate task which allows you to change the interest rate for any given time range.

I have 4 simple ones that work flawlessly for me:

1) Call Brightness - when the phone is ringing, brightness goes to 100% for 15 seconds then returns to auto brightness

2) Sleep Mode - Puts phone in silent mode from 11:45pm-7:30am - sets volume to mid-level on exit

3) Alarm - Sets a notification sound to go off every weekday at 7:30am - only once. I don't use an alarm clock as it doesn't matter exactly when I get into work.

4) Rotate Pictures - I don't like auto rotate so I leave it off. But when the app QuickPic is opened, it toggles rotation back on. Toggles it off on exit. That way, I can always view my landscape pictures in landscape mode.



Anyway, nothing special but they work for me. I was using profiles that turned Data off when on wifi but quickly learned that I could not receive an MMS with Data off. Not sure turning it off saves battery anyway.

After a ton of troubleshooting, I finalized a profile that figures out whether or not I'm driving, and starts a driving profile (complete with reading texts out loud and announcing callers with a get-voice option to take the call). The base is that I use a profile that tracks my GPS location every 10 minutes and logs it to a text file. I now have about two years of locations. The file is set to not append a new entry if the previous log was the same as the current log.

But until now, I was too busy/lazy/whatever to amend the profile to not append new location data to the text file unless the new location data was more than 0.005 away in latitude or longitude from the previous one (because GPS isn't precise to the foot, so sometimes while I sleep, it appends five different locations to the file, which is a waste of space and makes the Google Earth map into which I periodically import the text file really messy).That's accomplished by splitting the %LOC variable by a comma, which gives %LOC1 and %LOC2, one with latitude and one with latitude.

So, the driving profile subtracts the current %LOC1 from the previous one, and likewise subtracts the current %LOC2 from the previous one, and if either one is more than .06 different from the last one, it means I've traveled a decent amount of distance in those 10 minutes, and it triggers a car profile.

I sometimes disable that car profile and use a bike profile instead, but with smaller amounts (which would depend on the user's speed). The car one is often difficult, though, because Boston traffic sucks, and sometimes I'm on Washington Street for .02 of one degree of longitude and it takes me over ten minutes. (Which is sad.)

Sounds cool - do you mind sharing?

Great thread - so many ideas. I've only read a couple pages so far because there are so many posts. It's funny to see that a lot of the ideas from the first couple of pages are for programs to perform tasks that 2 years later many phones have built in! I'm currently on a Motorola RAZR HD MAXX which uses Smart Actions, program that does a lot of the things people previously needed Tasker for. But I really like to tinker and support good devs so I went ahead and bought Tasker anyway.

Very new to the program and just barely scraping the surface but this is what I've come up with so far:

Bose SoundLink connected via BT -> BT Voice, Ringer and Notification volumes set to 0, Media volume set to max.

Work (using GPS) -> Silent mode with vibrate on, WiFi off, Mobile Data on.

Drive (connected to car via BT) -> GPS on, on exit Stop Location Source GPS.

Waking up (this is a favorite!): At home, Sat or Sun, Time from 6 - 11 a.m., Power via wall charger inverted -> sends a text to my wife "I'm up! I need some coffee!!" This one is our little joke but works great. Since I work evenings she gets up a few hours before I do. So when I am home on a Saturday or Sunday, if my phone is on the wall socket charger and I unplug it between the hours of 6 and 11 it sends the text. This allows her time to get a cup of coffee ready for me by the time I make it out to the living room.

Bright Apps: Basically a simple app that designates several different apps that require a brighter screen to automatically increase the brightness level when those apps are started and then the brightness returns to what it was when the program closes. Neat little program that helps save some battery juice.

Looking forward to reading more posts and getting some more ideas and getting better at programming in Tasker!

It is interesting when reading the comparison above. You could use tasker to shut them or data off at a certian time. Im sure other aps could do it as well but i know tasker can.
