    Hello everyone,

    I am trying my best to find a way to set up Tasker for disabling some specific profile when another profile is on. I have a profile to stop every internet connection by night, and I would like it to stop another profile that keeps running the whole day and keeps searching cell towers.

    Any help?

    Use the action Tasker > Profile Status

    I already tried that but the second profile keeps turning on because "Profile status" seems to deactivate it once, but when the profile detects the cell towers it activates itself again. I would need a way to permanently turn it off when the first profile is active.

    If you disable a profile using Profile Status, it can't activate - it's disabled. You would also need an exit task to re-enable the second profile when the first profile exits. If for some reason this isn't working for you, you could also try this:

    Profile: Night
    Context: <your context>
    Enter Task: <your actions>

    Profile: Daytime
    Context: Variable Value %PACTIVE Doesn't Match *,Night,*
    Context: <your other contexts>
    Enter Task: <your actions>

    What's the context of the first profile -- the one that disables the second? The context you've selected may be your problem.

    You could also use a variable set by the first profile but the second profile would have to check the variable.

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

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
