I want to execute a few tasks whenever I am active on Tasker (e.g. editing profiles, viewing settings, etc). However, the problem is I can't see it on the list of applications that's usable when creating a profile. Am I missing something?

The developer of Tasker has specifically excluded Tasker itself from showing up in the Applications list. He cites his reason in the Tasker Why...? section of his website.



I figured this wasn't currently possible so I just created a widget that activated whatever profile I want active when Tasker is open then disable the said profile if I go back to the home app.
