    I’m having trouble configuring automateit to reply to sms messages, as it always asks for a specific phone number to send to. Any way to resolve this?

    • AutomateIt says:

      Currently the send SMS action requires a predefine contact as the SMS recipient.

      We might add in a future release the functionality of replying to caller/sender with an SMS.

    1. If using more than several “OR” trigger conditions, later it’s impossible to delete (edit) selected triggers out of the rule , because the gui gets mixed up and the deletion icon is not visible anymore.
    2. I want to activate Wifi only for apps in my cell which are depended on data transfer .(google, utube… etc, but not for calls, or messages…) Is there a way to know that?

    • AutomateIt says:


      1. We are familiar with this problem. until we will change it we recommend to split the composite trigger into two (or 3 if necessary). for example if you use an or trigger and inside it triggers A or B or C or D or E or F, you can replace it with or trigger and inside it A or B or C or OR trigger (#2) and inside this one D or E or F.

      2. We don’t know a way to do this.

    Similarly, when exit a Navigation application [as trigger], the actions are

    -turn off GPS

    ps. I am using Automateit Pro

  4. yevets says:

    I would like start an application [navigation app or maps] as trigger and the actions are

    – Turn on GPS [currently not available]
    – Turn on mobile data
    – Turn off wifi

    Could you include GPS state as an action item?
