    I'm new to Tasker. Could you please help me with the following. I'm trying to write a profile that does the following:

    While I'm teaching in a class, I want mobile data and wifi disabled during the class to save battery, and any call that I receive during the class is dropped with a follow up sms saying that I'm in a class. My class schedules are stored in a google calendar called "Teaching".

    I could do the first part i.e I could disable mobile data and wifi during my classes but could not do the rest.

    Any help in this direction is welcome.

    Thank you.

    if you disable wifi & data, your phone will never know when it has an incoming call, so the rest will not work. You need to keep your mobile data active and maybe turn off the sound instead, if you want it to detect incoming calls.

    I do not see your point. Even with data switched off, GSM connection remains active which means that the phone can receive and make calls and SMS.

    the reason i say that is because I used to have a profile that turned off data and wifi during certain hours and I was not able to receive phone calls but I guess that wasn't the reason.

    I have set up a profile to detect a calendar entry with "mute" in the description to mute my phone.
    It would be quite easy to modify this to turn of wifi and data for the duration of the calendar entry

⚙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!
