AutoApps Variables


Basic Concepts

  • AutoApps variables always start with 2 letters which are the initials of the app in question. For example, AutoRemote variables always start with “ar” and AutoLaunch variables with “al”. This is not the case for AutoAlarm, for historical reasons.
  • Variables that have () after their name are arrays. An array is a list of values. You can access items on that list with %array1, %array2, %array3 etc. Find out more about Tasker arrays here.
  • AutoApps variables can be created in 2 places:
    • Plugin conditions
    • Plugin actions
  • Variables are only available:
    • For Plugin conditions in the Entry Task of the profile (not in the Exit Task)
    • For Plugin actions, in all the actions following the AutoApp action
  • You can see all these variables in Tasker. Near a text input field, there’s always this icon:  tasker tag If you click it, you’ll see the relevant variables.
