Hi. I've been a user of the popular Tasker app for over a year or more. I have basic profiles and tasks for simple things I need automated but lack the expertise.

I've looked at many websites including the ones provided for Tasker but never could really find what I'm looking for.. as far as profiles and tasks I need help creating.

So this thread is dedicated to people like me who can request what they want and have our community help creating the profiles and tasks that we simply do not know how to create or need help on.

With that said...

I need to create a profile that will text my girlfriend once I arrive at her work to pick her up stating that I have arrived. But only if it's after 3:45PM.

I have created a profile that does this but it's unreliable because it doesn't know I'm in the radius of what I set unless I use an app that triggers net GPS. Other wise it could take several minutes for it to pick up my location.

What I have:
GPS location profile >> Send SMS if %time>15.45

But like I said, it doesn't work most of the time.

I want to reverse it to:
Between hours 15.34 and 16.30 to check if I'm in the area, then text her. But I can't figure it out.

HELP!

The official Tasker Google group has loads of people who are experts in Tasker profiles. I'm not saying this thread shouldn't be here, but you might get better answers there.

I have such a profile which works flawlessly.

Profile context:
Location + timeframe (from 1600 - 1700)
task: Send sms

for location I just use NET with a radius of 400 meters.

That's basically what I have but tasker doesn't know I'm in area unless GPS is triggered. Here is what I have: see attachment

I want:
Profile: Between 15.45 and 16.30
Task: Check to see if I'm in area, if so... Send SMS.

[Q&A] Tasker Profile and Tasks Requests
How do you prevent it from sending multiple SMSs? I guess you could set a variable.

You might have to experiment with what way to trigger the location setting, i.e., GPS, WiFi, or cell location.

Make sure you set the location when you're actually there. For me location works fine..based on cell towers.

It does not sent multiple sms. When location is entered the corresponding profile will start it's task. The task only runs once... So one SMS...

So instead of picking the area using the map, go there and set it? It uses the towers? I will try that. Thanks.
