    Post your tasker profiles here

    I've looked and while I've found several threads with some people talking about profiles they've created with Tasker. I have gone to the application's site and even on wiki there is a very limited amount of profiles.

    I would love to have a thread where we can upload our profiles for others to download or for step by step instructions on how to make a certain profile (like how to turn your wi-fi on and off when you're within a certain distance of your home etc).

    Please only post requests, profiles (with an explanation of what they are) and detailed instructions on how to create a certain profile.

    THANKS IN ADVANCE!

    Someone with some deep knowledge of the app might think about creating a "Tasker for dummies book" just remember I suggested it and pass on a few cents my way when it's published!

    Cheers and looking forward to seeing what you all have created!

    Tasker is capable of importing and exporting Profiles as .xml files and there are some posted on the developers Wikki.
    This board will not allow .xml attachments but they can probably be posted as .zip files and would probably have to be handled through a desktop computer.
    I thought it would be more useful to have a location where users could not only describe the profiles they have done but be able to upload them as .xml for others to download and modify them to suit their own needs.
    So far the only profiles posted have been ones I have developed for my own use but the board is Tapatalk capable and completely free to to the Android community to post and download. I had to enforce user registration to keep spammers out.
    Unfortunately, the only Android browser that I have found that will allow uploads to internet web sites is the Opera Mini Browser but this is supposed to be fixed with Froyo.

    Well, I just started a thread to try and get some directions and how to do this or that... hopefully it will be a good start for us Tasker users.

    Perhaps you would be willing to email me some of your profiles? If so, PM me and post on the new thread! Thanks!

    Does anyone know how to set the "auto update" setting in tasker? I can't seem to find it anywhere. Since APNdroid isn't available, I've heard having this off is the next best thing, but find no settings for it. EDIT: never mind, found it.

    The other thing I'm wanting to do is to have it it read me my calendar appointments outloud (I need reminders to stick to my schedule). I know you can have it read texts outloud and was wondering if anyone knew of a way to read calendar notifications or alerts?

    EDIT: also, I'm looking for a good way to turn stuff on and off periodically. But unlike the lifehacker and other tutorials for nighttime, I don't want it to cycle on and off for the same amount of time, so the repeat/toggle option doesn't work. I just want to turn on gps for say 5 minutes every hour to ascertain if I'm at work, then another to leave auto update off, and turn it on for a few minutes only twice during the day. I not only don't want it checking and wasting power, I don't want distractions. Any ideas?

    EDIT 2: Okay I think I figured out a way to do this... I just dropped in a "Wait" command. So I setup a new Profile with 2 contexts: my work hours and my home location (I work from home). Then I setup these tasks/actions: auto-sync: off; gps: off; wait: 3hrs; auto-sync: on; gps: on; wait: 4min; goto action: 1. So it should turn my auto-sync off, then turn it on every 3 hours for 4 minutes, then start over. Then when my work hours are over and/or if I'm not at home when the gps is cycled on, it will go to the exit tasks which turn the auto updates & gps on.

    I hope I'm understanding the wait & goto actions properly.

    Still looking for any ideas on how to get it to read calendar notifications.

    I can figure that out, but is there a way for it to just resume playback in that same music app? I've been able to set it up so MixZing opens and want it to begin playing right away.

    I think a limitation of Tasker, and any Android App, is that it cannot internally interface with another app unless the developer deliberately provides an interface. Unless the player automatically resumes every time it is started...probably not.

    Is it possible to create a profile indicating with keyboard to use in either landscape or portrait position? Does anyone know? I have created a few simple profiles, nothing complex and I was hoping for some feedback...I have emailed the dev as well to see...but thoughts anyone?

    While I appreciate the courtesy, I am actually a little tickled that you even asked... feel free to do whatever you would like. Cheers!
