    This is my first experience with Tasker. I tried to create a task like this:

    Silent Mode - On
    If %CNAME (Does Not Match) Joe OR
    %CNAME (Does'nt match Regex) *Mary*

    The purpose is to let Joe and Mary pass through and for rest of the people put ringer to silent mode (at night)

    This is not working... It looks like there is some issue with my understanding of how ringer works.

    Any pointers will be appreciated.

    Set a profile that will activate between 11pm and 7am, for example, where you set the ringer volume to 0 and a variable, for example %NightMode, to on.

    Then create these profiles (in this case, you need one profile per number, afaik, but you can reuse the same task):

    "Joe calling at night":
    State > Variables > Variable Value > %NightMode ~ on
    Event > Phone > Phone Ringing > Caller = joesnumber

    Task "Set volume for night call":
    Audio > Ringer Volume > Level = 4

    Do the same for Mary but reusing the task above.

    Then check if the volume goes back down automatically after the call. I think it should.
    If it doesn't, we'll sort it out.


    EDIT: you need an exit task to the 'night time' profile to set %NightMode back to off.

    Jojobar, you may want to check this link out: http://tasker.wikidot.com/sleepmode

    It will probably do what u need; you may have to "tweek" it a little but give it a try.

    I added the ability, on mine, for someone to call twice within 5 minutes and have the phone ring through, in case there's an emergency.

⚙No repetitive tasks for you, let your Android device handle it!⚙
Total Automation, From Settings to SMS. Here are only some
of the things you could do with Tasker. Its real power is the flexibility to combine contexts and tasks however you wish: https://tasker.joaoapps.com/exampleuses.htmlAutomations
Make your phone a true smart
phone! Why remember to change the volume every day when you leave home when your phone can do it for you? Automate stuff based on the app you're in
, the time of day
, your location
, your Wi-Fi network
, Received SMS or Calls
, the currently playing song
and many other (130+) states and events! Check out how easy it is to create an automation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6EAbLW5WSkActions
350+ actions allow you to truly customize your phone like never before! Send SMS, create notifications, change almost any system setting like Wifi Tether, Dark Mode, Always On Display, change any volume, control Do Not Disturb, open apps, file manipulation, control music playback, get your location... you get the idea. If you can think of it, Tasker can probably do it for you! Note: root is NOT (I repeat NOT) required for majority of the functions.
However, a few of the actions (like the Airplane Mode action and the Mobile Data action on some devices) require root. Regarding those few actions that do require root, this is because of Android security policies that developers cannot work around. ☑ Other Triggers
Manually trigger your actions via launcher shortcuts, quick setting tiles, widgets, long-pressing volume buttons, media buttons (like the ones on your BT headsets or headphones), Bixby button, Navigation Bar, Notificaitons and more! ☑ Join - Remote Tasker
Adding Join (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.joaomgcd.join) to the mix will even allow you to trigger tasks from another Android device or PC! ☑ Scenes
Design your own UI and use it to display any info you want or trigger any task! ☑ App Creation
Create your own standalone apps to share or sell with the Tasker App Factory (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.dinglisch.android.appfactory)! ☑ Developer Friendly
A lot of 3rd party developers already allow you to perform actions in their apps and listen to their events/states through Tasker! Check out a list of plugins https://tasker.joaoapps.com/pluginlist.html. You can also call most of the Web APIs from Tasker with the powerful HTTP Auth and HTTP Request actions!
