    Hay all,

    This is the first I've found of Tasker and it looks amazing! I can't wait to think of cool new routines for my phone. My question is this:

    Sometimes I'm at work and pulled away from my desk for longer than I expect. As much as 2 hours, which is long enough to wish I had seen an email earlier. I have my phone/watch notifications turned off because when I'm at work I'm getting messages via my laptop, and at home they will text me if it's important. When my (Work wifi is near + Laptop Bluetooth is near), I want notifications OFF for Outlook (and others) as I'm certainly sitting in front of my laptop. (Work wifi + NO laptop Bluetooth) means I'm on the warehouse floor and I want those messages getting to me via phone/smartwatch, so I want Tasker re-enabling the notification of those apps. Home wifi near means disabling of those notifications since now work is somebody else's problem! :p

    I have a Samsung Note 9, running Android 10, One UI 2.1, unrooted. Setting the wifi near and Bluetooth near is easy enough, but no matter which settings I look into I can't find the specific one I'm looking for App Settings, General Settings, Notifications...

    Am I missing something , do I need to look into creating a custom variable, something else?

⚙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!
