    Trigger a macro every n hours

    Basically, title says it all. I need to perform an action every n hours. It doesn't matter to me if the macro triggers every n hours, or if the macro triggers every hour but there is logic in the macro to perform an action every n hours. Anyhow, this is a simple problem that I don't know how to...

    Trigger each hour

    WOW! All of you on this forum are great! (Someday, I hope to be as smart as all of you.) A fervent thank you to everybody that chimed in and helped me get my project up and running! hendis

    Trigger each hour

    Thank you for answering so quickly, Jacob, but the interval trigger won't work either. Let me explain. I need to perform a set of actions every hour on the hour. Sometimes, these actions will take 4 minutes, other times 16 minutes, and in extreme cases, more than half an hour. Regardless, I need...

    Trigger each hour

    How do I trigger a macro to run each hour EXACTLY on the hour? I don't think that using a "wait until next action" will work. To put it in different terms, I need to trigger a macro when the minutes equal 0 - and repeat this 8 times. I am doing a project at work that is expected to last several...

    Use MD to add functionality to Alarm Clock

    Everybody, I'd like to report success. After a lot of testing and tweaking I now have a working macro. No, it's not sleek and pretty and elegant. To be honest it's not elegant at all, but it works. And that's what counts. I discovered that the problem was in increasing the sound level. To...

    Design tool

    It would be useful if the search function could be upgraded to find a macro's "causative precedents" (other macros that contain a statement causing THIS macro to run). Many users/developers use one macro to trigger another, instead of putting a trigger condition in both macros. This feature...

    Use MD to add functionality to Alarm Clock

    Snurre, I found where the problem was and corrected it, but now I'm running into something else. The sound variable is not increasing the way I had hoped it would. Again, I can only say that I'm obviously doing something wrong. Is there a way I can show you what's going on?

    Use MD to add functionality to Alarm Clock

    To Snurre: I have duplicated your example, but cannot get any sound at all. Is the starting value of the volume variable the starting volume level of the played sound? I seem to be doing something very wrong, and don't see my problem. Can you give me more of an explanation? Also, can you explain...

    Use MD to add functionality to Alarm Clock

    I'm still working on creating an alarm clock macro (and many other things as well) while working 84 hours a week. I have concluded that trying to solve my own issues first helps me to learn. I will only use someone else's solution as a last resort. That said can anyone tell me how to vary the...

    Use MD to add functionality to Alarm Clock

    TIA to anyone and everyone... Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong thread group, but I'd like to use MD to replace my alarm clock app and add "skip 24H" or "skip next alarm" functionality, too. Anyone know how this can be done?

    HELP! Accidentally added a "screen off"

    UPDATE: Wiped phone to factory settings using hardware keys. It will be a tough go restoring everything, but I'll consider it "tuition" for learning from a dumb mistake... At least I can use it again.

    HELP! Accidentally added a "screen off"

    Hi, all. I created a macro to keep background apps closed, and added a "screen off" statement at the end. Now, my phone is essentially bricked, because the screen turns off automatically. I can't do anything with my phone until I can get to Macrodroid to fix my error. However, I can't do that...

    MD repeatedly crashing after update

    Just an idea... All, please comment on this: I figure that the problem with MD crashing started when I updated via google play. What about uninstalling and reinstalling MD? BTW, if anyone is still interested, there is no entry in the syslog when MD crashes. No indication in the MD system log...

    MD repeatedly crashing after update

    As of Friday, 11/26, MD Helper v. 1.7 has been installed All macros are working, but MD is still crashing repeatedly. Crashes are now random and unpredictable. (The only way I k now is because Android throws a dialog saying that MD has crashed.) Any way to fix?

    Geofence area title as Magic Text

    Apologies for being slow, but I'm new to MD. Could you give me an example? Let's say you're entering the geofence area called "Apex". You want to send a text saying "I am at Apex". How would you do this?
