New User Help

Post by meyerweb » 04 Jun 2014 19:40

Hi everyone. This looks like a very powerful program, and as a long-time (read: old) developer I appreciate the flow-chart approach. I'm going to download the eval version and try this out, but probably won't have time until the weekend. In the meantime, I'm hoping you can answer a couple of questions for me.

Is it possible to do and / or logic with conditions and triggers? "And" logic seems like is should be simple: just put one trigger or condition following another within the flow. Only if both are true will subsequent steps be executed. But I'm not sure I see a way to do "or" logic. For example, take an action if I'm connected to WiFi AP "home1" or WiFi AP "home2". Is this possible?

Thanks.

Hi,

Triggers are event handlers that are invoked when the system detects an event so a trigger is not active over a longer period of time and it's therefore not possible to combine triggers with an AND. Automagic allows to add multiple triggers to a flow which would be like an OR.

Conditions on the other hand allow to be combined in different ways (AND, OR, XOR etc.).
Please see this post for a few examples: http://automagic4android.com/forum/view ... 3868#p3868

Regards,
Martin

Thank you, Martin. That should handle everything I need to do.
