    I get email notifications 14 days out of upcoming court dates for my clients from the automated electronic court notification system. In the subject line it lists the case number. What I would like to do is have this subject line entered as a to do item. I am using K-9 so the variable is %ESUBJ. I am able to get to the point where due today opens and the tap works, but it will not input the text. Once I get it working, I will add the input tap to save and adjust the k-9 email received to be triggered when received from the specific address. This is what i have so far.

    event: K-9 email received
    t1: load app due today
    t2: wait 5 seconds
    t3: run shell script/input tap 619 112; use root
    t4: wait 5 seconds
    t5: run shell input text %ESUBJ; use root

    side note: I am able to send a text message with %ESUBJ as the message of the text.

    Is the text box highlighted before your type command? That is what the first tap is I'm assuming (don't use "Due Today"), right?
    Tasker has a built in action under "Input", "Type" that you could try. But other users have reported that it is slow.
    You could try making your own to-do app completely with Tasker. I've done this myself, but I find Google Keep to work fine, and AutoShare can add notes into that one. Maybe AS could help with this too

    After the input tap a new todo item opens and there is a flashing cursor in the spot where I want the text to go. Haven't looked at Google keep, will do that.

    Started working after I came back to it. Am able to input %ESUBJ as the todo title.

⚙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!
