Need some tips for a tasker profile I want to set up. What I want is:

When I press a button, it will disable notifications of text messages. When a text arrives, it will start a timer for 5 minutes. If no text comes in before the timer runs out, I will get a notification. If another text comes in after, say, 3 minutes, it will reset the timer.

The rationale: At times I get too many texts from an overly texty person, and it's irritating to stop what I'm doing every minute or two to check it.. So I'd like it to be quiet until there is a 5 minute period with no text messages. Then I'll happily read whatever texts I've received. 

Bonus points if I have a GUI where I can set the timer duration. :-)

I know Tasker has a timer module that runs a task once the timer is complete. However, I need to execute a task (store volume levels and disable notifications) when the timer BEGINS. Also, I'd need to reset the timer (without storing volume levels) if a text arrives while the timer is already running.

Tips?

Thanks!

+Mueen N​ just create a counter, that count the incoming messages. Also create a timer... (I've created many timers) and use autonotification to control notifications (create, delete, etc...). Check my community and my tasker tutorials/videos for more info...

Feature request: I have so many profiles and tasks in different projects, but for some of them the trigger is similar or even the same, which can cause problems. It would be cool to have an alphabetic  list of all triggers of all projects, so I can see at a glance which tasks start eg on a specific time, in a specific app, or are triggered by a specific plugin.

Hello there,

I have a problem with turn on/off Wifi and mobile data when I'm at home, work and outside. The problem is that the difference between my home and my work is approximately 10 km but the cell near towers are more or less the same so almost same near cells are covering pretty much a whole area. So when I travel from work to my home or I'm just outside for a coffe, there is always WIFI ON and mobile data OFF because of the cell towers in the area. I tried various different things like ignore the cell towers which are the same for home and work but still I have problems. Now I think about something like: When I'm near cell tower (home or work) to enable Wi Fi but not disable data yet, so IF I'm connected to either home or work WIFI network for 5 min for ex, turn off data, either wise leave it on and turn off WIFI. But that means that if I'm still driving from work to home for ex, tasker will check, see that i'm not connected to home/work wifi and will disable wifi. Then, when i'm home later it will not turn on wifi again. It's little tricky and I can't find a real solution. Any ideas?
Thank you

I've been working (very slowly, sorry about that!) on a complete re-vamp of Bluetooth Detection. Most of the code is completely new, and its been updated to Material Design. Along the way, though, I've done some soul-searching, and made a few very difficult decisions. I wanted to know what people think of these, before I publish:

1) The trial version will be no more. I'll support current users who've unlocked the trial, but if you are in the middle of a trial, or are a new user of the trial (which shouldn't happen, as I've already "unpublished" it), you'll simply get a note explaining that the trial version is no longer active. This comes for many reasons, but mostly because the benefit of having it didn't outweigh the cost (in time, mostly) of maintaining it.

2) Polling for "nearby" BT devices will now only happen if your BT is already enabled. That means that those users who use nearby to enable BT when you are in your car (as I myself did at one time) will have to either switch to Movement Detection, or simply leave BT on all the time (as I do now). Again, several reasons, but mostly that the experience was not ideal, and I don't think it was going to get better. With Android M, though, BT may enable polling even when off, so it may make a return in the future.

So, I'd like to hear what people think: please let me know how you feel, not only by voting, but also in the comments. Thanks!

I just tried the app and need some basic instruction. I don't see a "distance" variable where it would read you a db level of how strong the signal is from the watch

A quick perform task question. I'm passing a variable into a perform task and then want to split it within the task. After spliting, is %par11, %par12, %par13 correct?

Hey I'm trying to make a profile that plays my default ringtone when I get an incoming call through the Google hangouts app.

The problem is that the incoming call notification title uses the contact's name instead of something static. However the body text says incoming call so I imagine that I'd be able to trigger the ringtone based on the body text.

It'd be better if there was a notification state so that the ringtone stops once the call is answered or missed. Currently the ringtone plays until the end even when the call is finished.

If there is a better way to accomplish this is appreciate it thanks.

A decline and answer button appears, but my main issue is that I don't know how to make the ringtone play when an incoming call through google hangout is happening.

Wow here's an action that might prove useful in some cases. Seems pretty straight to me. Except for 1 problem and this is where I need pointers :

In the data field I would enter the file path. But what if I want this action performed for the CURRENTLY PLAYING file? How would I get the file path of only the currently playing file and set it to a variable which can then be used here in the data field?

I think you need to ensure that your friends phone had that sound file in the particular folder as stipulated in your task

Hi all, I'm after some help understanding FOR loops, i posted on my previous post but thought this would widen the audience.

I have an array %Snakename at the moment its got 3 names.
Each snake has its own txt file.

In my task i need to open the txt file, split the data, subtract 1 from one of the variables and over write the updated information back to the same file.

I then need to do a loop to run the the above for %Snakename2 and %Snakename3 but also for any. Additions to the list in the future.

I can do all the above except for setting up the loop as never done it before and I'm getting confused looking in the wiki and other people's examples.

Would i need to get the %Snakename(#) being how many variables in the array.
Set %index to 1, run the task with %Snakename%index and at the end do a
if %index ~ %Snakename(#)
Stop
Else
%index +1
Goto action 1
Endif

Thinking about it i think that should work but wondering how to do it with loop.

Using #autonotification is it possible to intercept #waze speedtrap warnings?
I've tried using a generic "notification" filter and I see waze sending notifications for startup, navigation and shutdown but only a simple popup that tasker doesn't notice.

Dear Friends,

I am trying to create a project which will help me to receive call when I am driving bike. I am using Tasker, Autovoice. My requirement is when I will receive a call, phone will announce caller name and asks me whether I want to pick up the call. If I reply with yes then call should be picked up.

I have set some part of the profile as per my idea. However when I try to test it phone only announces caller name and do not go ahead to 2nd step and next steps. Kindly suggest what should be done to achieve the result. Profile export is as below;

Profile: C. O. R (35)
Event: Phone Ringing [ Caller:C:ANY ]
State: Headset Plugged [ Type:Any ]
Enter: Call Do (36)
A1: Say [ Text:%CNAME is calling Engine:Voice:com.ivona.tts:eng-GBR Stream:2 Pitch:5 Speed:5 Respect Audio Focus:Off Network:Off Continue Task Immediately:Off ] If [ %CNAME !~ %CNUM ]
A2: Say [ Text:Do you want to accept this call from %CNAME? Engine:Voice:com.ivona.tts:eng-GBR Stream:2 Pitch:5 Speed:5 Respect Audio Focus:On Network:Off Continue Task Immediately:Off ] 
A3: AutoVoice Recognize [ Configuration:

Language Model: Web Search
Voice command without headset
Command: "accept call (regex)" Package:com.joaomgcd.autovoice Name:AutoVoice Recognize Timeout (Seconds):120 Continue Task After Error:On ] 
A4: If [ %avmatched ~ true ]
A5: Run Shell [ Command:service call phone 6 Timeout (Seconds):0 Use Root:On Store Output In: Store Errors In: Store Result In: ]

Hi Nate & mrtur, I copied the steps as mentioned in your suggestions and the profile worked as per expected for the first time. However I am facing below issues;

1. Profile works first time only. If I try to test it 2nd time it do not work.
2. I need to restart the device to test it again.

Also the say action sometimes works some times dont. What could be the issue ? Kindly suggest;

My current config is as below;

Profile: C. O. R (35)
State: Headset Plugged [ Type:Mic ]
Event: Phone Ringing [ Caller:C:ANY ]
Enter: Call Do (36)
A1: Variable Set [ Name:%RINGING To:1 Do Maths:Off Append:Off ] 
A2: Say [ Text:%CNAME is calling. Do you want to accept this call? Engine:Voice:com.ivona.tts:eng-GBR Stream:0 Pitch:5 Speed:5 Respect Audio Focus:On Network:Off Continue Task Immediately:Off ] If [ %RINGING ~ 1 ]
A3: Wait [ MS:80 Seconds:0 Minutes:0 Hours:0 Days:0 ] 
A4: AutoVoice Recognize [ Configuration:

Prompt Text: "yes" "accept" "no" "reject"
Voice command without headset
Timeout: 120
Command: "all" Package:com.joaomgcd.autovoice Name:AutoVoice Recognize Timeout (Seconds):120 ] 
A5: If [ %avcomm ~ yes | %avcomm ~ accept ]
A6: Wait [ MS:500 Seconds:0 Minutes:0 Hours:0 Days:0 ]

I just saw an app that claims to send your phone's location when the battery gets too low and I thought this would be easy in Tasker. But while I can get the location and put it in an email easily enough, I don't see a way to actually send the email. Am I going to need a plugin for this (Autoinput?) or is there another good way to get the warning out of the phone short of texting someone else?
