I'm trying to get an alarm to go off when my calendar notifies me of an event. I can get the alarm to trigger but not switch it off. The only way I can kill the alarm is by forcing tasker to stop. Is there some way you can't kill the alarm or is this a bug as mentioned in the tip tool (Samsung galaxy Tab S3)

The two last steps in the profile is my attempt to stop the alarm as I can't switch it off when it triggers

I'm not aware of any way to stop a play ringtone action. The problem had to do with underlying android and the need to reference the original play ringtone instance.

Most people use music play instead with a music stop action.

The cancel alarm action is for system alarms, which you can set through tasker, but you would need to use an alarm set action.

When you choose a stream in a audio action (such as the alarm in your play ringtone), you're determining which volume control affects the sound. It's not the same as creating a system alarm.

Thanks that seems to have done the trick.
