    Package Name - Media Info / Condition

    Zachary Denny · 0 replies · Posted

    I see there are many more additional Media State conditions and Media Info fields in your latest update.......Unfortunately, I do not see one very important field which I was hoping would be included.

    Request:
    It would be nice if there was a Media Info or Media State condition which tells you which App is currently responsible for the Audio Output (ie What App is playing the music right now).

    For example, if you have many different Music Players (Spotify, Pandora, Podcast, Google Music, etc)....Get Tasker/AutoTools to Detect which app is actually responsible for the audio currently being played. If necessary,

    Ability to send raw TCP request with Hex data as payload

    Michael Hill · 0 replies · Posted

    This would allow control over devices that require simple tcp requests to trigger actions  (ex wifi smart plugs). There would need to be a field where you can specify the IP and also a field to provide the Hex payload string. For a better idea of how it would work you can reference the Send/Expect plugin.

    OCR with Japanese/Chinese characters

    Wayne Bowie · 0 replies · Posted

    Having the ability to use OCR with Japanese/Chinese characters would be very useful for me as I am learning Japanese using Memrise but I want to get some text from the app. I've tried using UI query with AutoInput but it doesn't work right for me so I've resorted to taking a screenshot and getting what I need from there. It would be a big help to have those extra characters be detected too

    Being able finally to move/copy multiple files in handy, end easy way.

    Vencislav Karov · 0 replies · Posted

    Hello, I've been using Tasker and your apps from few years now, and I've always been frustrated how not handy is to move files with Tasker... I've been waiting for some improvements but nothing so far. But I believe in you, and since AutoTools is adding so many futures I am sure you can add a handy way to move multiple files to specific folder. 2 quick examples : I want once in a day all screenshots what I have to be moved in my SD card. (with or without renaming)....and also I want every time when there is a

    Change advanced wifi settings

    Rob · 0 replies · Posted

    So, here's my particular use case but I'm sure there could be other uses..

    I'd like to change the DNS settings for my wifi connection in order to block ads (by pointing to an ad blocking/malware blocking dns server), but only under certain circumstances - most of the time I'm fine with ads. However it's too cumbersome to manually change dns settings every time, so if autotools could do that (and also change other advanced wifi settings where possible) that would be great.

    AutoTool Theme action

    A action where you can select or create your own theme and it populate %attextcolor %atbackgroundcolor and so.

    Users can use them as they like but in dialogues in AT you have a option to use the preset theme variables. 
    A check box Use AutoTool Theme. 

    %atthemejson gives you all colors in a JSON that you can save or set as a global variable to be used in another task or even call a subtask where you have the JSON as a parameter.

    Fingerprint dialog black out background

    Can you please add an option for the fingerprint dialog to not just dim the background but black out the backgroud app. So that you can't see any of the app in the background. This is a great security option for me

    Return an error when Date Format doesn't match Date Millis in Add Time

    Lynda Howell · 0 replies · Posted

    AutoTools -> Time -> Add Time will convert text dates/times into milliseconds, but if there's a problem with the Date Format, it just silently substitutes the current time.  I'd like to see it set some kind of %err when this happens.

    For example:

    demo.date (216)
    A1: Variable Set [ Name:%raw To:24 July 2016 8:31 AM Do Maths:Off Append:Off ]
    A2: AutoTools Time [ Configuration:
    ---------Add Time---------
    Output Format: yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss Timeout (Seconds):30 Continue Task After Error:On ]
    A3: Flash [ Text:%raw
    %atcalculateddate

    %err %errmsg Long:On ] 

    There's a mismatch between the Date Format and the actual date (: vs .

    allow more user-selected variable names when AutoTools returns values

    Lynda Howell · 2 replies · Last reply by João Dias

    Some AutoTools actions (such as JSON Read) allow the user to specify the variable(s) to be returned.  I'd like to see this option available anywhere AutoTools is returning a value.  I'm specifically thinking of Time, but it'd be helpful anywhere.

    Without being able to specify the return value, multiple calls to AutoTools Time require two extra actions between calls: one to store %atcalculateddate in another variable so it doesn't get overwritten, and another to clear %atcalculateddate so the old value doesn't get retained when the next call doesn't return a new value.  Being able to specify the return variable allows

    Detect invalid authentication failures for Tasker profile trigger

    Walter Francis · 1 reply · Last reply by petru stoian

    Secure Settings had the ability to detect authentication failures as an event for Tasker profiles so you could execute specific things if someone is messing with your device.  It seemed to be pretty popular, and I don't see any current way to do this now that Secure Settings seems to be abandoned and no longer works (easily?) since Marshmallow.

    Ideally this could be set to the number of attempts required in order to trigger the profile state, ie:  1 failure not necessarily trigger it, but perhaps 2, or some folks may prefer 3, etc.  This could possibly be done in

    Option to use second in "Time Span Between Dates"

    It would be simplify the processing, if the "Time Span Between Dates" has a option that the given unix timestamp is in second and not in milliseconds.

    It's clear that i can add "000" to the unix timestamp, but the functions "Format Dates" and "Time Span" have that option.

    Thanks!

    Great Tool! :)

    Samsung Air View (S Pen or Fingers)

    Lemuel Sacop · 0 replies · Posted

    Hi Joao,

    I am not sure if this is possible, or a perfect fit to Auto Tools Secure Settings or maybe to Auto Input, and this is specific only to a Samsung Notes' models. I would like to propose if we can know if Air View is on and off into a variable, what kind of Air View is enabled (S Pen or Fingers or both), and then if it is possible to return the app name, or the text, or the image path that I am hovering over into a variable. Then I can use this variable that contains

    Hijri (Islamic) Date

    I'm not sure if this has a big demand, but it would help me a lot. In AutoTools, Dialog, Date. Is it possible to have option to select different date type such as Hijri Date (Islamic) while the output will remain same options available i.e. The Gregorian date format, seconds, etc.
    There are couple of sites which have references to libraries used to convert the date from Gregorian to Hijri and vise versa.

    Advanced TTS action

    Richard Kemp · 1 reply · Last reply by Richard Kemp

    Tasker's built-in TTS works fine for most purposes. However, several of it's parameters can only be set by checkboxes and spinners - there are situations in which it would be useful to set everything using variables. Things I personally would like to be able to control by variables: output audio stream and 'continue immediately' setting.
