Widget / Shortcut Configuration

Widget / Shortcut Configuration icon_tasker.png

This screen allows selection and configuration of a task which will be performed when an icon is clicked on the Android home screen or a timer elapses.

Please read about Task Widgets / Shortcuts before venturing further on this screen.

The layout of the Configuration screen is nearly identical to that of the Task Edit screen. The differences are as follows:

  • there are no icons for renaming or deleting the task
  • at the bottom of the Widget Configure screen is a launcher button. This will take the icon and text of a selected application as the icon and name of a new macro. You can then change the details as you wish e.g. add an action before loading, change the icon.
    Tasks created with this button are One-Time only: you can't access them again after the widget is created.
  • when creating a Task Timer widget, you'll find a different button in the bottom right which allows initialization of the timer. You can use this, or wait till the widget is created and then click on the icon to configure the timer.
