I have seen a lot of fragmented threads about different profiles and requests for help. So I have decided to make a thread to collect profiles and advice for people from different devices to use (hopefully in an easy to understand English!). Also, I'm not a huge Tasker wiz! I just hope that everyone can contribute in one place for everyone at xda. So please send me/the contributor a PM if you see a post that is wrong.
Post #2 - Links to submitted guides/profiles
Post #3 - Basics of Tasker
I do not have ownership (whole or part thereof) of the Tasker Android Application. This guide is for educational purposes only. I, or any contributor to the guide, is not responsible for any faults (software or hardware) resulting from following the instructions set out in this guide.
Tasker is available from the Android Market or in trial form from the website
Admins: If this thread is unnecessary please delete and let me know, thanks.
Submission of Profiles:
If you have a profile that you would like to share, please put it into this standard form so that people can more easily understand what to do:
Profile: "Wifi at home"
- Variable "HOME" [matches] "1"
- Wifi-near [(SSID of home/work/school wireless network)]
- Wifi [ON]
- Mobile Data [OFF]
- Mobile APN Enabled [OFF]
- Wifi [TOGGLE]
- Mobile Data [ON]
- Mobile APN Enabled [ON]
OR if you want to submit a walk-through as well:
- Tap Context
- Google Maps
##(end example 2)##
If you are completely new to Tasker, you need to check out the Tasker website and wiki.
The program may seem unwieldy and complicated at first for those who do not have programming experience - I certainly found it a little intimidating at first - but once you play around with it, it helps a lot. The guides on the wiki and on the website are a little confusing, so hopefully this thread will help decode some of the settings/profiles into plain English.
The wiki is worth checking out for the walkthroughs and downloadable profiles - so take your time to check it out!
duckredbeard has also pointed out that there is a google group for Tasker which is supported by the developer himself. So if you need some trouble shooting, check that out too.
