I'm trying to use Tasker to turn on the do not disturb mode in android 6.0 marshmallow. I used to use tasker to make my phone go silent when I plugged in my charger cord every night, and turn off silent when I unplugged the cord in the morning. Tasker broke I think with Lollipop when we lost our silent mode. Now with Marshmallow we have do not disturb, but tasker can't seem to trigger it and/or has no access to "do not disturb." I set up a profile (state/power/any) and a "task" (audio/do not disturb/all) but it does nothing when I plug in my power cord. Can anyone solve this problem?
It doesn't work because you designed the action not to do anything but let Android disturb you, as usual. Here's what each entry corresponds to under Audio → Do Not Disturb:
- None: silences all sounds, including alarms - Total Silence
- Priority: silences sounds except for certain calls or notifications - Priority Only
- All: this effectively ends Do Not Disturb mode
- Alarms: silences all ringtones & vibrations except alarms - Alarms Only
