    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.

    I strongly second a 3G/LTE smart action. I'd like to turn off 4G when my battery drops below 20% capacity.

    Add me to the list wanting a "not" or "default" action. I want to be able to define settings for when I am NOT currently in a situation that would cause a trigger to activate.

    I came to Smart Actions after using Locale on my D1 for years. The way they let you prioritize actions was great. I'd like to add another vote for that ability as well.

    Ok I have captured "not", "default," and "prioritization." Got it!

    Do you have a particular use case for the "Not" condition? Then I can go back to the team and explain to them.

    I have a RAZR which recently upgraded to ICS [4.0.4 and Screen Action ver. 3.1.5.1.2] I used SA extensively under 2.3.6, but now with 4.0.4 there is no "Keep Screen On" option under settings. At work my RAZR sits in a dock so I can see the clock and quickly hit mute if I'm listening to music or an audio book. Even with Developer Options / Stay Awake, the screen goes dark after 10 minutes, though the setting only works while on a charger. Imagine trying to navigate your car and having the screen go black.

    Long story short; I'd like Smart Actions to override ICS and force Keep Screen On for some of my Smart Action profiles. I want to be able to set "Screen Timeout" to "Never", for certain actions.
