    Hi everyone,

    I recently downloaded tasker and was looking how i could activate my system profiles. (I have one for when i'm home,outside, asleep, driving a car and one for when i'm attending classes.
    I would like to activate them with tasker. So i started looking; first in tasker itself, then i looked in secured settings (a tasker input), and now i'm looking with the autoInput to activate these profiles. I can't find that many instructions/ youtube tutorials about AutoInput so i hope someone can help me here.
    So what I want to do is make a task in tasker to activate one of my profiles mentioned above.
    for my task: see picture.

    So where it goes wrong is step 3. I use "easy setup" then i "add" system profiles. so far so good. after that i click on the profile i want to activate.
    now i get a second screen with select element field. When i choose "element id: com.android.settings:id/profiles_pref" it just activates the first profile on the list.
    when i choose "element Text: Class" or "Element center point (x,y)" nothing happens.

    I did find tutorials, just not that many. And when I watch the tutorials it seems that my method is the right one. ;) so I just don't know what I'm doing wrong

    Then I suggest you take to the autoapps forums where there is a chance you may get some help, also export your profile as description and post it so people can actually see what you are trying to achieve and help identify what is not working since you say your method is correct

    and to be clear, i'm not saying my method is correct. I think my method is correct since it works with apps like deezer,...
    This question is just about the system profiles. (but maybe it just isn't possible to activate them with autoInput.)

    So if anyone else is asking him/herself the same question and used the search function. I don't think it's possible.
    All the other functions on autoinput worked, so I guess programming the profiles in tasker and secure settings just is the best option.
