    Hello,
    I am trying to build a new context but am really new to Tasker, so I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.

    I want my context something like this:
    1)Notification from Whatsapp parent application
    2)Contains "____" keyword. or is Sent from _____ person

    so that the tasks could be
    1) Play X sound
    2) Show popup to dismiss
    3) Repeat playing sound until popup is dismissed

    It is basically a triggered wake-up alarm when receiving a specific keyword.
    Thanks!

    I don't use WhatsApp so I'm somewhat limited on what exactly I can recommend, but I did find a pretty handy-sounding Tasker plugin for working with WhatsApp notifications: WhatsTasker.

    You should be able to use that as a State context, to receive the WhatsApp notification and parse it for your keyword.
