Tasker automates your tasks. A task is a combination of actions to complete a single thing, like opening an app or turning on your Bluetooth. You can create profiles to automate different tasks that are subject to time or data sensors. You can further create scenes that establish controls that help you interact with profiles. You can also create variables that you can use in your profiles, tasks and scenes, and store them.

Remember the following terms while you’re starting to use Tasker:

1. Named/Anonymous Tasks – named tasks are identifiable and can be reused in different profiles, while you cannot reuse anonymous tasks. You can create profiles or shortcuts with the help of anonymous tasks that will not be necessary more than once.

2. Task icon – each task has a task icon (question mark is a default icon)

3. Task Scheduling- the actions in one task are executed one after the other. However, when there are several different tasks, their handling needs understanding.

  • To avoid interference, only one action can be executed at one time
  • High priority task blocks low priority tasks in the cue, while execution.
  • Tasks with same priority take turns. Most recent task in the cue executes first. Similarly a child task of another task executes first.

4. Task Priority – Values, 0 to 10 determine the level of priority assigned with each task in cue, with 0 being least important.

  • Default priority level of the “enter tasks” is 5 which can be changed from Profile Properties
  • Exit tasks in the profile have 11+ priority and their default level is 16.
  • Tasks run by shortcuts and widgets have 7 as default priority. You can set them in Menu/Prefs/Action.
  • Tasks that show scene and tasks that run from scene elements have different priority levels. The latter has 1+ priority than the former.

5. Action Groups– Actions groups make tasks scheduling easy, based on the length of execution and interference of actions. Some action groups are Speech, Javascript, Fix, Voice, Proxy, Proxy scene, Other Scenes, and Normal.

Due to its adaptability, Tasker has gotten stronger and prettier with the passage of time, and because of the APIs added by Google from time to time.

The start isn’t easy, but thanks to the communities around with advices on tinkering and troubleshooting. Tasker communities are great sources, making it easy to learn and understand its diversified nature.
