Having issues with menus causing black screens and making my phone unresponsive. These sometimes go away after the phone locks, sometimes I have to reboot, any ideas?

My device is doing this too but im not sure tasker has anything to do with it. I dont have any tasks using the menu action so if tasker is causing the issue its not just that action.

I'm making a scene to perform some weather calculations. I am using text boxes that have a string of tasks on text changed that perform the calculations live. The results populate variables to either do other calculations, or populate text fields for the answers. It seems that after it gets down to number 8 or so, it stops calculating? I can create a test variable to run the exact calculations and they work correctly. Is there a limit to how many tasks can run on the text change event? Or am I missing something else? Thanks

Recently i have been having trouble keeping a "system" setting from ever changing (no im not actually changing it, it just keeps changing) and then it hits me. I seen that tasker can change the screen timeout but i cant see the option im looking for.


For some reason my screen timeout keeps changing from "never sleep" to "15 seconds". I know this because prior to the timeout my screen goes dim on me. Id like to set a profile/task so if the screen timeout is NOT "never sleep" to change it to that setting. That way my screen never dims while im reading.

(NOTE: my screen cant actually sleep because i have it marked in my developer settings to keep the screen on when charging, which further adds the note that my device never leaves the charger. However that doesnt stop the screen from dimming at least and thats what im trying to avoid especially when im reading... Toshiba Excite 10 (AT300) - not the SE ...... NOT ROOTED running 4.1.1)

I found tasker cant be causing the problem because i literally have no projects/profiles/tasks that change this. .....Unless somehow a profile to set zooper variables when music is playing causes this. The only thing i can think of is HI LOCKER and only because theres no option to just go with the system setting. =-(

Using Tasker to mute phone when there's a meeting in my work calendar. One problem is that Tasker does not distinguish between meetings that I have confirmed and meetings to which I have not replied. I get many meeting requests but don't attend them all so it would be nice to able to distinguish between the two. Is that possible?

Guys maybe trivial question! Tasker also allows close restart the device but I noticed that allavoce Normal Reboot the phone will reboot of "abrupt" in practice does not like when you tap the button there is a command in Android that allows this type of reboot?

Is there a way of adding text to a already set variable?

I have a couple off arrays set up for a messaging project I've been doing in autowear and want to take it a step further.

If i receive a Message from mr x. I take the name, time & message text and put them into there respective arrays titled name, time & text. Using array push for all three, the details all stay in line so i can call %name3, %text3, %time3 to make up the details for message number 3.

What i am wondering is, if mr x messages again, have tasker search the %name array for a match. If it was %name5, then to copy the previous messages text %text5 to the new %text1 so it's making a conversation history.

Hope that makes sense, it does in my head which isn't saying a lot.

I'm having a weird problem I've never had before. Tasker crashes whenever I try to drag an action. It happens when I'm rearranging actions, or if I try to delete one but only when I release it. This happens every time.

I tried clearing data and starting fresh and it does it from a fresh install too. Any ideas? #crash

Hi, I'm new to Tasker. I read where someone made a Tasker profile when they lift their phone off of their Qi charger and the battery is below 30% the phone says "put me down" in a robot voice. Can anyone help me do this? Thanks!

How to set Samsung to silent on 5.0? I know that with 5.0 tasker was changed to reflect the new interruptions system. However samsung still has silent mode in their roms and I can't find out how to set the phone to silent mode. Interruption just turns on blocking mode. And you can only turn on vibrate. Any ideas?

Last night I spent a lot of time trying to convert a Unix Timestamp to a simple date and time format. I thought it'll be pretty complex but within Tasker it turns out to be pretty simple.

Here's how:

1. Convert the time to seconds.

ACTION: Variable Set "%TIMESTAMP" to "round(UNIX-TIME-STAMP-HERE/1000)" make sure you put your timestamp in as directed and select "Do maths"

2. Convert the Seconds to date and time.

ACTION: Variable Convert "%TIMESTAMP" than select the Function: "Seconds to Date Time"

3. Use the variable "%TIMESTAMP" as you need it.

Notes: You don't use the added quotation ( " ) marks.

(Thanks to +Oleksiy Chekin​​​​ for teaching me how to do this in relation to the Weather Ace app and using it's Tasker plugin, specifically the Unix Timestamp variables it creates.)

#Tasker, #UnixTimestamp, #WeatherAce, #WeatherAceTaskerPlugin

You can use Autovoice + Autoshare (or use intents), I've created some tutorials how you can directly add things on keep or Evernote. Check my youtube tutorials or you can create your own shoppinglist in tasker. Here is an example of mine: https://youtu.be/MTJjrJ4xvv4 and also in material design: https://youtu.be/Ii9xsKgcd4E

Hi
I used phone's hotspot function a lot. But usually forgot to turn it off once I'm done. That drains battery.
