how can I use a tasker plugin?

Post by Ghostnet12 » 14 Dec 2014 18:00

The flow I'm working on is a flow to send an away message when its enabled. The flow also includes a activity condition to sense if I'm driving. The problem I'm having is not being able to use my tasker location plugin. How would I be able to use my tasker plugin?

Hi,

You can use plugins by adding a trigger, condition or action of type Plugin to the flow. The plugins available on the device should be shown in a drop down list.

Regards,
Martin

Martin thank u for your reply, tasked plugin I'm using isn't always reliable. Is there a more reliable solution to location activity plugin I can use?

Hi,

You could also use trigger User Activity to detect when you are driving in a car. The detection itself is done by Google Play services installed on the device which is probably also used by the plugin you have used so it's not likely to perform better.
When you are using bluetooth in your car, you could use the trigger Bluetooth Device Connected to circumvent the activity trigger completely.

Regards,
Martin

Hi, instead of using tasker plugin I added user activity to copilot ( GPS I use). That made my drive mode within the flow extremely accurate. Thnx for the help. Drive mode activates when I'm using my preferred gps and deactivates when I'm not. Exactly what I was wanting .
