Timeout for Homescreen

Post by dribnus » 30 Mar 2021 16:48

I'm trying to configure AM to shorten the display timeout when I am on the homescreen. OR, run a shortcut that I have that turns off the screen. Basically, I need a trigger for when the homescreen is displayed. Any suggestions? I'm using the Nova launcher.

you have to find out the text sequence which appears with the Nova Launcher, for me it was German language and triggers on the 5th page,
hope it helps

Thank you. I was able to translate everything but the regex command. How is that used with the homescreen? Should I be able to use any text that is always on the Homescreen to trigger the flow?

you should use "letzte Ereignisse" to find the last triggers, there you will find the needed record not only for Nova but all other events too and choose the record. Normally no need to change the values which are put automatically in the fields, for me I had to change the values...

Ok, thank you. This is new to me, so hopefully I can figure out how to do that. I'll do some searching.

you can also use this trigger, if just coming back to Nova without special page

This is actually the one I was using and it worked great. Then I used a similar flow for all my other apps to make the timeout longer. However; now, when selecting all apps, only about 1/2 of them will stay selected after saving. I can't use the * wildcard, because then Nova would be selected as well which would counter the flow I have for the shorter timeout when on the homescreen.
