I've set up a
Device Shutdown event on Tasker, and I'm trying to use it to send an SMS text before the device dies due to the battery dying. I've got:
Event: Device Shutdown -> Task: Phone: Send SMS
Send SMS is set up currently to just send to myself for testing, but it's not working. I was hoping to have it send a text to the last sender if the last text received was less than 10 minutes ago, and the battery is below 3%, but I can't even get it to just send a simple text without conditions.
According to the tasker help file:
The phone is about to shutdown (completely turned off, not standby).
Note: this is right before shutdown. You might backup a file or similar, but UI interactions such as dialogs and anything that takes a significant amount of time will not work.
From this note, my guess is that
Send SMS takes too long to execute, however I thought I'd throw this question out anyway.
