    Hi all, new to tasker and have been trying all day to get a volume slider on my tab A.  I've successfully gotten a slider on my desktop top but it doesn't work.  Thanks in advance.

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!


  2. It is not clear what you are trying to do.

    Volume control is one of the more complex areas in Android. There are eight volume stream adjustments that can be made ...
    A - alarm
    B - BT voice
    C - in-call
    M - media
    D - DTMF
    N - notification
    R - ringer
    S - system
    ... and some of them are connected (DNRS).

    What have you developed so far? You can long press on the task name and select settings / export / Description to Clipboard and then paste it into a post here. An example ...

    Dev4 (316)
    A1: Variable Set [ Name:%SSI To:0 Recurse Variables:Off Do Maths:Off Append:Off ] If [ %SSI !Set ]
    A2: Variable Add [ Name:%SSI Value:1 Wrap Around:0 ]
    A3: Take Screenshot [ File:%SSI.png Insert In Gallery:On ]
    A4: Flash [ Text:%SSI.png Long:Off ]

    Damn. I was hoping this wasn't a developer thread.

    Do you have to be a developer to use Tasker? When I bought it I thought I could just add stuff like that anywhere I wanted.
  5. Tasker is an "almost a developer" application. If you were a developer you would think of it as a collection of extremely useful macros.

    I was attracted to this problem about two years ago because Android volume controls are about the most complicated Android subject. Everyone thinks "volume control" No one approaches it thinking "8 volume controls".

    If Tasker is too complicated for your liking ... many people use MacroDroid. It does most of the capabilities that Tasker does and is less "developer like".

    The "Need Help" thread here shows how to add a JavaScript capability to Tasker because it doesn't have it already built in. he code is not mine. It is public domain and published in a number of places on the Internet.

    People love Tasker because you are constantly able to learn new things about Android. People hate Tasker because there are all kings of new things you can find out about in Android.

    What have you done so far with Tasker?

    I bought it and tucked it away in the Play Store. Haven't tried it since the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. It wasn't what I thought it was.
  7. I recommend that you try something.

    The one that seduced me ... Motorola devices used to dim when the proximity sensor was covered. They no longer do. A simple Tasker Profile/Tsk solves that problem.

    You might want to check out MacroDroid.

⚙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

and many other (130+) states and events! Check out how easy it is to create an automation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6EAbLW5WSkActions

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
