What It Is

Advanced interactive Notifications in Tasker with JellyBean support.

(WARNING: YOU MUST HAVE TASKER INSTALLED FOR THIS APP TO BE OF ANY USE: AutoNotification is only usable as a plugin in Tasker. Please don’t rate it negatively because of this.)

Please don’t leave negative feedback without contacting me first. I’ll always do my best to help you, and I can’t do that if I can’t contact you.

With AutoNotification you can create notifications in Tasker with the following characteristics:

Like mentioned above, you can react to notifications in Tasker using the joaomgcd command system also available in the AutoRemote and AutoBarcode apps. Check out how it works here: http://goo.gl/PRQas

Tips for using lists with AutoNotification: http://goo.gl/CmrRI

Basically, to create an interactive notification that copies the word “test” to the phone’s clipboard, follow these steps:
– Add an AutoNotification notification action in Tasker (new Task -> Plugins -> AutoNotification)
– Set any of the fields above that you can react to (like Message on Touch) to “copy=:=test” (without the quotes)
– Create a new profile and add an AutoNotification condition to it (New Profile -> Condition -> Plugins -> AutoNotification)
– In the message filter write “copy=:=”. This will make this profile activate with every message that has the “copy=:=” expression in it.
– In the corresponding Entry task add a Copy to Clipboard action and set the text to %ancomm. %ancomm is one of the variables available in the Entry Task of an AutoNotification profile and is any text to the right of =:=
– Done. Now “test” is on your phone’s clipboard

In AutoNotification, the default variable names for its messages are:
– %anmessage for all of the message
– %anpar1, %anpar2, %anpar3, etc for every word on the left of =:=
– %ancomm for all text to the right of =:=

With this command system you can do anything you want in Tasker from your custom notification.

Most of the functionality of this app is also present in AutoRemote (http://goo.gl/1nPde), so get that if you’re interested in controling Tasker remotely and much much more.
