    I'm looking for a task that can shutdown my phone when the time is 23:00.
    I know how to do it with my computer but i don't know how to do it with my phone.
    Please help me build the right task.
    Im using miui based on 4.1.1 xiaomi mi2s.

    I set my phone to reboot once a week at a certain time (2am) on a certain day (Tuesday)... you could use the same profile to turn the phone off. It does involve using another app (Quick Boot) - not sure if you have to have the pro version in order to use the Tasker plugin functionality though:

    • In the profiles tab, click the "+" sign (to create a new profile)
    • Select the "Time" option (set start and finish both to 23:00)
    • Press the key to get back out of the "Time Edit" screen
    • From the list, select "New Task +" (and give it a name if you want - off/reboot/etc)
    • In the "Task Edit" window, press the "+" sign (to create a new task)
    • Select the "Plugin" option
    • Select the "Quick Boot" plugin
    • Hit the pencil next to "Configuration"
    • In your case, select "Power Off" from the drop down menu (I selected "Reboot", as that's what I wanted my phone to do)
    • Hit "OK" at the bottom of the screen
    • Press the key to get back out of the "Action Edit" screen
    • Press the back key on your phone and you should be good to go... when it gets to 23:00, your phone will power off :)

    You could always add other triggers - day of the week, for example, if you only want to turn your phone off on certain days.

    Lemme know if this is what you were after... if not, I'll see if I can offer some other advice :)

⚙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

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

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!
