Re: Query content issue, bad.

With regard to the relatively lengthy code to extract hours minutes, AM / PM value, etc., then speak the time, there's a simpler way to do it (although the spoken text doesn't say "o'clock", it says, for example, "Five PM" or "Five Oh Three PM"). The example below will change the large number (which...

Re: Wifi On/Off Profile

Take a look at the action Set Network Location State (and its help documentation). If you're rooted, I'd suggest that you try adding that action to your flow, above the actions that query your location.

Re: Location precision problem

Also, instead of following your first (entering/exiting) location condition with a second location condition, you can follow the first one with the Condition / Expression : entering == true; I still have to try this. It doesn't really make a difference, but it simplifies the flow a little bit by re...

Re: Location precision problem

Since the first location condition returned TRUE, but (reading between the lines of your post) the second location condition did not , it seems likely that the first condition's returning TRUE did not happen because it thought you had entered the area - rather, it was responding to the fact that the...

Re: Make SMS limit more "flexible"?

Thanks Martin. I'm aware of the "exceptions" connection (I even explained it to another poster a few weeks back ;) ) but I didn't use it here for 2 reasons. First, as you say, exceptions are for handling errors , and as explained in the OP, rightly or wrongly I don't think that this is an error, bec...

Re: Make SMS limit more "flexible"?

Hi Martin:

Are either of these possible, or should I construct the flow without using the "SMS limit" function (perhaps by building in some kind of duration condition which would precede the sending of an auto response)?

Re: Vibration is not turned on

Thanks for this hint. So I need a second workflow to reenable it when I leave the office area, right? You were too quick for me - I was editing my post while you were reading it !!! The edited version (above) actually answers this question (my Drive Mode ON flow enables all of my location flows) an...

Re: Vibration is not turned on

I have a lot of location flows, so I'll try to answer Q1. Let's say your flow is named "In office area" (we'll refer to this name later). If I were you, I'd have the flow disabled by default. There is little point in having a location flow like this running all the time, when you're not going to be ...

Re: How can I test whether or not I have an internet connect

The most obvious way would seem to be to send an Action / HTTP Request (to a reliable web site). If it fails, you'll get an error message.

Or perhaps download a dedicated app (PingTools, for example) and use automagic to run that?

Re: triggertime variable formatting

As alternatives to the suggestions from Peter: I want to know the actual time formatted in a conventional way. To express, in a "conventional" (hour:minute) format, the time at which the flow was triggered: Action / Script Trighour="{triggertime,dateformat,HH}"; Trigmin="{triggertime,dateformat,mm}"...
