I'm using Sleep as Android as my alarm clock and want to make use of the intents it sends out, specifically the "user pressed snooze button"
Sleep also includes a Tasker plug-in that Automagic can use. There is a "Plugin Event (Experimental)" trigger and "Plugin (Experimental)" action.

@Rafi4 Try this

@Martin is it possible to add same workaround to start activity action that you have added to send/share intent received. I'm getting permission denial errors sometimes.

@Rafi4
I myself gets permission denial error when i run that flow manually but once. Try with shortcut trigger. Create a shortcut in launcher and execute.

If you want simple flow without those script then i guess you have to wait for a workaround to be added by Martin so that we won't loose content uri.

I have already thought of this way but that wasn't working with all sources like downloads, recents, images, audios, videos.
I have tried your flow on Samsung 8.0 device but samsung gallery unable to open any images.

It looks you are picking up files from either internal or external storage. So i have edited your flow which should work for image, audio, video and text files. Edit 2nd expression to set your apps. Or you may untick Explicit component.

That action can be used to uninstall a app.
You want to delete a file using this action?
