    It's not really an issue with priority in this case, the trigger and action was causing issues in a deeper multifaceted perspective.
    As for prioritizing rules, the beauty of Smart Actions is that the system is designed to auto-prioritize so the user doesn't have to worry about such things. But if there is a strong need to have the capability of manually prioritizing rules we could implement it exactly the way you described. This is something that we are aware of and if users want it then we can "prioritize" it on our list. Ha, get it.

    Logic Functions

    Along with the NOT function, the ability to use "OR" would be very helpful. For example: Location: Home OR Time frame. Basically if you guys could implement all logic functions (not just NOT) that would be great.

    Just got my droid maxx yesterday and classes are interfering with me playing with it (stupid college) but I love it so far!!

    Edit:
    Just thought of a better example for the OR argument. I use smart actions to automatically mute my phone when I am in class, I have many breaks in my class schedule so I have to create a new action for each timeframe (class time) so if I could set multiple timeframes (9-10:15 OR 11-12:15 or 3:30-4:45) and multiple locations (1. to make sure I am actually in class 2. I have classes across two campuses) so it will look something like this:

    Timeframe: 9-10:15
    Location 1
    OR
    Timeframe 11-12:15
    Lacation 2

    Obviously this is just a neatness thing and has the ability to be worked around (creating multiple actions) so its not a huge issue, just a suggestion =)

    Angelo-

    Have you tried the calendar event trigger? If you put your classes on your calendar and use this trigger, you won't need tp build all the timeframes. Works fantastically for me at work. The calendar integration is one of the best features of SmartActions.

    Thank you for the suggestion I will defiantly play around with that, I also figured out if you select multiple locations in the location trigger then it treats it as an or function. That combined with the calender event trigger will allow me to create one rule. Thank you very much.

    Guess you'll have to build a smart action that reminds you of that priority, huh? :biggrin:

    I'm going to expand this request to cover the ability to turn off all notifications, since a double vibrate for an eBay auction notification woke me up at 4:26 am :biggrin:. And maybe it's technically easier to disable all notifications since it seems to be a core part of the OS... or not?

    Thanks!

    Calendar events based on event?

    I use another battery saver and it'll do matching based on whats in the calendar event, not just the existence of an event. Could something like that be added?

    Thanks

    Hi Goaliemn,
    I don't fully understand your use case can you describe a bit more. I will then document and bring back to the Smart Actions team.

    Maybe checking the contents of the appointment. If there is an appointment on the calendar, and it contains "business" activate.

    3G/LTE auto switch

    Droid 4 user here...

    Lately I have been keeping my phone in 3G only mode since the battery drains so fast on 4G.

    However, when i'm using the car dock I would like to have 4G turn on (so streaming would be faster, etc.).

    How about a smart action that automatically turns on the 4G radio when docked or plugged in??

    Or are there any other options available?? I have a 4G switch app but they are a PITA and I can't find one that does it in one simple step.

    I for one would like having a priority setting in Smart Actions. For example, if there were two active smart actions with conflicting actions, you could set which one takes precedence over the other.

    First I would like to have an app be a trigger. For example I usually keep my phones on minimal brightness but when I watch Netflix I always have to go in to setting Nd manually adjust the brightness. I would like to set Netflix as a trigger that turns the brightness up when I start to app. Not sure if that is possible.
