    Grouping is great!

    I think a good note regarding the Group Summary is that it can be created at anytime before or after the notifications you want to be in the group are created.

    However the Group Summary should only be created once. So when intercepting notifications from another app in order to re-create them in AutoNotification - an AN Query should be used to determine if the summary exists, and if one doesn't - create it. If it does exist - don't create another one.

    In order to do this the Group Summary has to have something that identifies it to be queried, which is where when Joao mentions:

    "Although this text won't appear anywhere in the current Android Version it's a good idea to set it anyway in case Google decides to make it appear somewhere in the future."

    Comes into play. AutoNotification can query the existence of a Group Summary by its querying its text (whether the text is visible or not) :)

    Is it possible to group persistent notifications of different apps within the same group?

    Actually @Tasker Pro you can create the group notification as many times as you want as long as you give it the same ID :) No need to query current notifications at all.
