    I am trying to set up a profile so that while I am driving if I get an SMS a reply is automatically sent. I can get that pretty easy. Here is the tricky part:

    I want the reply sent with the exception of 2 numbers:

    1. 32665*** (Facebook) - any reply is posted to my FB account so obviously I don't want an auto reply here. The *** is different with every text thread from FB.

    2. (123)456-7890 - One number I don't want the auto reply sent to.


    I tried Send SMS ... if "%CNUM !~ 1234567890", but when I set that condition a response was not sent to other numbers.

    How can I set it to ignore both of the numbers I listed, and how do I format the "if" conditions.

    I would say the idea you're using is the easiest way to do it, and should work.

    If %CNUM Not Matches 32665*/1234567890

    If that's not working I would double check for typos.

    I have it set up so I'll test it later. A couple quick questions:
    1. Do I only need 1 * if it is 3 numbers?
    2. Do I include the 1 before the area code?

    Did you ever get this figured out? I have been trying to do this myself.

    Yeah, I was using the wrong variable

    %CNUM is for calls
    %SMSRF is for SMS

    So my send SMS task is:

    Send SMS
    number %SMSRF
    If %SMSRF != 1234567890/32665*

    Then if I receive a text while I am driving that is from 1234567890 or facebook it will not auto reply. I keep this profile deactivated unless I am driving (I have a driving profile that activates via bluetooth in my car and will enable this profile as one of it's tasks, and I have a toggle switch on my homescreen to toggle this profile when I am in someone else's car)

    I just got tasker and I want to set up a profile where a text will be sent when I hit a certain gps location. Can this be done and how would I do it or find the step through for it. I also want to put parameters on it that send it during the week and during certain hours.
