    Hello All,

    I am running the latest version of Tasker on a Samsung Galaxy S8+ (Android 7.01); previously the app was running on a Note 3. It seems like the following profile will only run manually:

    Profile: Move BBM Files (226)
    Event: File Modified [ File:pictures/BBM/ ]
    Enter: Move BBM Files (227)
    <List files in the /storage/sdcard0/Pictures/BBM/
    .BBM Process>
    A1: List Files [ Dir:pictures/BBM Match:*.* Include Hidden Files:On Use Root:Off Sort Select:Alphabetic Variable:%listbbmfiles ]
    A2: For [ Variable:%listbbmfile Items:%listbbmfiles() ]
    A3: Move [ From:%listbbmfile To:Tasker User Configuration Backups/Backups/Tasker Scripts/.BBM Process Use Root:Off ]
    A4: End For

    This same profile ran with no issues when it was on the Note 3. Can anyone perhaps shed some light on why the above Profile will only run manually on a Samsung Galaxy S8+ (Android 7.0).

    In additions, it seems like a lot of my Profiles will are having the same issue; where they ran fine on the Note 3 but will only run manually on the S8+.

    Is anyone else having the same issue with their Tasker Profiles?

    Thanks,

    Vernon

  2. On Droid Turbo 2 running 7.0 ...

    The Profile appears to be looking for a specific file name like ...
    Pictures/BBM/sample.jpg

    It seems to work the way you have it in the next version that is currently in Beta.

    Thanks Thom.

    Hopefully a new release is coming soon. I have a number of Profiles that used to work automatically now require manual intervention.
     
  4. I just tried again and ran ...

    Profile: Test (180)
    Event: File Modified [ File:pictures/BBM/ ]
    Enter: DevE (630)
    A1: Flash [ Text:DevE Long:Off ]
    A2: Beep [ Frequency:4096 Duration:256 Amplitude:100 Stream:5 ]

    ... on 4.9u4m and 5.0b5m with no problem on 7,0 (not 7.0.1)

    ... Thom
     
  5. This previous test was on two different Droid Turbo 2 phones. The 4.9u4m failed previously. The only difference the second time is that I had done a Wipe Cache Partition on that phone after thje first test.

    You might want to give Wipe Cache Partition a try.

⚙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! Check out an example https://youtu.be/yAt2D1XmgUI. ☑ 7 day trial - one time payment to unlock

Note
: Tasker uses the BIND_DEVICE_ADMIN permission in order to provide the System Lock functionality
