    Hi, I want to be able to msg my phone so it takes some pictures and mms them back to me

    so far this is what I have seen on this and it starts to work

    ===
    Create Variable %StolenFilename as Stolen
    Create Variable %Shots as 1
    Create a task
    (Task) For %Shots items 10
    (Variable) Variable Join %StolenFilename %Shots
    (media) Photo - under filename put %StolenFilename
    (Phone) Compose MMS (number is whoever you want to get pictures) Attachments %StolenFilename
    (task) wait 1 second
    (Task) end for

    sends 10 mms pictures (change the number of items for more or less)
    ==

    so it takes for some reason 1 picture but names it %StolenFilenamethen looks for it in my sd card location and give an error like

    location not found: sd/dim/%StolenFilename

    so i kind of get it, the reason I dont think its taking more than one pic is becuase its naming them %StolenFilenamenot different names?

    can anyone figure this out, even it I could get one image sent back via mms would be a great start?

    thanks

    Did you type the error yourself? Because sd/dim doesn't exist. It should probably be sdcard/dcim... or is this a red herring?

    thanks for the reply

    Yeah sorry... I meant if the message was ad you posted, yeah would make sense it can't find it

    So now that's sorted...

    Go and check what I expect is /sdcard/dcim/tasker and look for these photos and see whats there.

    Also go to the variables tab in tasker and look what %Shots looks like.. screen shot if possible please

    for the images in that folder you said there is one called %StolenFilename.jpg

    i looked at the error and managed to get it this is what its looking for:

    /mst/sdcard/%StolenFilename

    but dont know where that is getting set to look there?

    attached screen shot is that the screen you wanted?

    I was hoping I could fix it if it was faulty, I dont mind doing it different if there is a better way or another tutorial somewhere?

    thanks

    That's what I was afraid of because they're not particularly precise...

    :( could you help me on doing this? as that kind of works but needs to be able to name each image different and find the images to send?

    Sorry. Not based on what you posted I am afraid. I would suggest finding a new guide.

    Maybe if you can export me your profile, I can have a play with it.

    Just long press the profile > export > export xml to sd, then zip it and attach here.

    Can't guarantee a speedy resolution as time is not always free but at least I can have a play and see it in real time...

    Good news? Fixed you filename / attachment issue.

    http://db.tt/D2G5tPZ1

    Bad news is... "compose mms" doesnt send an mms. You'd have to manually press send. Same with "compose sms". There is a "send sms" option that does automatically send but no mms equivalent.

    You may have to consider amalgamating this with the profile I posted that emails pics of people putting incorrect pattern locks in

    I found it thanks, I got that working I just am trying to tie them together, well the idea to me would be just to change the action at the start so instead of the attempts on the password I would add received txt with a word

    so think I could do this unless I am thinking wrong lol will post back soon

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

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
