    Ok so I am new to Tasker, but I get the premise.

    My request for info is based on assumptions, so please correct me if I have this wrong.

    I have a profile called Ringer. Between 9-5 it Is in vibrate mode.

    I assume when I add the second context of Mon-Fri, that is an AND. So if 9-5 AND Mon-fri>Vibrate.

    Ok, however I have another profile called VIP (the Missus)

    So When missus rings, Profile "Ringer" =Off. If the profile is not on, nothing happens so no additional context needed there.

    Now, my query. I also assume that 09:00 is the trigger for ringer, rather than the time being between 09:00-17:00. So VIP turns off RINGER, but ringer doesn't automatically start again afterward.

    What is the best way to get this profile to start again after the event of VIP, ONLY IF the profile RINGER is within context?

    If I did a VIP2 profile, which waits 30 seconds after phone rings then sets RINGER to on, would it check the contexts are true in the profile and only turn it on if they are met, or would it just turn it on regardless of contexts?

    So confused. Yes I know I could test it but its a lot of faffing about, so thought I'd ask incase anyone already knows this ;)

    Many thanks in advance

    Can't help you on the info there m8, but if it was me i would use your own suggestion & test it myself.
    Probably much quicker & easier than someone trying to explain it to you. :D

    Think I will have to. Bah.

    Thanks Guide ;)

    Edit> If anyone is interested, the only way I could get VIP to work was to turn silent mode off, then turn profile "ringer" off, wait 30 seconds and turn profile "ringer back on". This did activate the profile successfully, and doesn't if it's conhtexts arent met.
