    AutoTools dumpsys support

    Ian Grody · 1 · Last reply by João Dias

    With the permission, android.permission.DUMP AutoTools has thr ability to run "dumpsys" commands, normally requiring root or ADB. Could AutoTools have a Dumpsys menu where a user can thtow arbitrary values at it, example "dumpsys activities" and retrieve their values please?

    Thank you!

    I would appreciate port knocking when making an SSH connection to be added to auto tools.

    Update autotools root addon to support oreo notification channels

    dragone17 · 0 · Posted

    Autotools root add-on doesn't work anymore since Oreo and the notification channels.

    It could be interesting if it was possible to have a way to enable/disable notification like before. Even more interesting if single channels could be enabled/disabled.

    I since Oreo I tried using autonotification way to disable notification (when I don't need them), but it doesn't work like autotools add-on. I have a mi band 2, and when I stop notification with autonotification, the mi band still vibrate.

    With nougat and autotools root add-on, the mi band wouldn't vibrate if the notification was disabled.

    Wave Launcher-like flyout WebScreen

    Andreas Toth · 1 · Last reply by João Dias

    Any possibility to add a Wave Launcher-style WebScreen?

    Note that Wave Launcher can run apps, shortcuts, activities, and even widgets(!), and, for organising, it supports virtual folders. It would be cool being able to replicate all of this behaviour with AutoTools.

    Have WebScreens server-listed items show status

    Andreas Toth · 0 · Posted

    It would be great if the server listing of screens indicated, per screen, if a screen is imported, out-of-date, or, possibly even unavailable on the server.

    AutoTools List Dialog "Select All" Button ?

    Tasker Pro · 0 · Posted

    In any AutoTools Dialogs that allow multiple selections, when that option is enabled (ususally under Advanced) - when one item is selected in the resulting dialog, a "SELECT ALL" button should also appear in the dialog, which when pressed...selects all :)

    And of course the presenece of this button could be an option as well ;)

    Json Write work with files

    Lynda Howell · 0 · Posted

    It would be helpful if AutoTools Json Write could work with files.  It currently only accepts a string for Input Json, so can't be used with json larger than can be passed from Tasker to a Plugin.  Assuming that same limit applies for passing back from Plugin to Tasker, then it would need to be able to write directly to a file as well.

    Adding a OR context to profile.

    Ryan Wilson · 0 · Posted

    I think it would be awesome to have a OR in the context of a profile! Such as Wifi Connected OR Bluetooth Connected perform this task. Just think this could be more cleaner than making mutiple profiles for one task.

    Would even be nice to have a OR in the task. More like a standalone option. Almost like a if statement but with OR.

    Example Something like This Verable or This Verable = This

    I believe you can already kind of do this alone in the IF statement but would maybe like to see a standalone option.

    A standalone option to change the navabar

    Ryan Wilson · 2 · Last reply by João Dias

    I know there is apps out there that can do this, but I think the developer of Autoapps can do better! I aslo know there is a way you can do this with autools. Just think it would be easier to have a standalone option.

    "Suffix" action for AutoTools Text

    Tasker Pro · 0 · Posted

    AutoTools Text has a "Prefix" option, but seems to be missing a "Suffix" or "Postfix" option to append new data onto the end of each input text ☺️

    AutoTools to Fake Send SMS to self

    Ian Grody · 0 · Posted

    Allow sending an SMS to yourself without the need for cellular network.

    There are apps in the Play store that do this, but none work with Tasker and AutoInput driving them is sometimes unsuitable, especially when needed when locked/display off.

    This then could be used for a mixture of things, namely converting app notifications into SMS so smart bands and other wearables etc that supports reading SMS can receive notifications. It would also be a great function to time fake sending SMS when you have to meet that 'one friend'

    Allow a dialog webscreen to show over top of a normal webscreen.

    Matt Vogel · 0 · Posted

    Allowing a dialog webscreen to be displayed over top of another webscreen would allow a "submenu" type interaction.  A dialog feels more like a natural UI element than an overlay screen. As of now the original normal web screen is completely replaced with a full screen dialog when the dialog is created. 

    Assigning the screens overlay IDs does not have any effect since neither screens are overlays.

    Allow any app as AutoTools launcher

    Axxel · 0 · Posted

    AutoTools currently only allows Launcher apps to be chosen in launcher tasks. It would be nice to allow AutoTools to (optionally) allow any app to be used as a launcher. This would allow apps that dynamically register as launchers (like com.bitspice.automate) to be used. I can also imagine it being potentially useful for kiosk-type tasks.

    Allow text in dialogs to be selectable

    Prasant · 0 · Posted

    I'd like to be able to display an AutoTools dialog with some text that allows me to select a portion of the text. Currently my work around is to use an input dialog, but that is kind of overkill for just selecting text. There's no need to bring up the keyboard and have to input text.

    An example is the dialog that allows me to select text in my Reddit app.

    Storing a history/log of Clipboards in Join.

    Andre Camenzind · 0 · Posted

    Nominally 10 deep. 

    When copying on multiple devices that have Join and having clipboard set to share, occasionally the clipboard on one device will be lost/overwritten unintentionally. 

    A history/log within Join, storing the Clipboard history from multiple devices solves that problem.

    Default dialler for fully customisable call handling

    Ian Grody · 0 · Posted

    If AutoTools could be set as the default dialler, we could create a fully customisable dialer for handling inbound, outbound and in process calls. Any elements from Dialogue could be used to configure the layout and design, with obvious advantages of using a variety of features.

    Idea behind this will be to include ability to add additional information to incoming calls; Spam Caller APIs, Web lookups of the number, add a map of the business, even interact with Tasks to retrieve data during the call. 

    Also with this capability, we could have much greater control of call handling; forwarded calls
