    I want to have a profile that has 2 sets of conditions joined by an AND operator. It seems they are only joined as an OR currently.

    If Keyboard Open AND Unread Text then Launch Messaging.

    When I add both Unread Text and Keyboard Open to a profile, Messaging opens regardless of having an Unread Text.

    Need some help, please.
    Can't get the task "say" to say the variable value.
    is there maybe a specific TTS engine i need instead of the default one i have?

    As I read through this thread I was wondering if someone could help me. I want to write a profile that will either light the led and keep it on or flash it fast and vibrate every 45 sec. when I get a new txt message untill I check it or I unlock the phone.

    Alternatively, you could use Missed Call/Blink/Easy Reminder.

    Yeah, yeah.. I'm on my phone. So?

    Hi guys, lurker reportin'.

    I've read up to page 20 or something and found quite a few things I liked. But I'd still love to be able to tingle around and put my imagination to reality with Tasker.

    The one problem I can't seem to find a solution for is: How to set a real meaning to a user-created variable.
    See, I use Variable Set, name it something, give it a value and all that jazz; it still does not refer to any actual part of the phone. Sure I can create a %WEATHER variable and dictate that it be 1 on Sunday and 0 on the remaining weekdays, but this is not what I want to do.
    I want to create custom variables that refer to the inner states of the phone that the built-in ones don't cover, such as: the flash light.

    Let's say I can create this variable:
    Variable Set: %FLASH
    Value: 0~100 (brightness measurement)
    Frequency: 0~100 (Hertz)

    How can I tie it to actually trigger the flashlight when modified to a value other than 0?

    I've been using Tasker with the missed notifications profiles for some time. Just started noticing that occassionally it doesn't alert on Google voice texts. When the screen is on it always seems to detect a new message and trigger the reminder task. When the screen is off it is about a 30% shot of it working. Normally no reminder appears. Any ideas?

    Tasker not respnding to missed calls

    esheesle - I've found with the App Missed Call that if you get a call and you select "Ignore" then you won't get a missed call notification. Maybe Tasker works the same. I think the logic is that if you pressed Ignore, you acknowledged the call and didn't really miss it. You already know you missed it because you pressed Ignore.

    Think it might work differently. In this case the missed notification profile set checks for missed sms(works all the time), and a notification event from google voice for sms there. The second part is what is failing when teh screen is off. Seems like an issue where the accessibility service isn't detecting the event.
