    I bought AL unlock key and it's installed.
    When I install and start AL for the first time it tells me that I can use it for 7 days in a trial mode (weird, I would have expected it to pick up the key).
    Now, I have GFs and according to the AL logs they are triggered properly, however, my Tasker profile that does a simple thing - for every time GF is triggered (any GF, any status) is never triggered.
    That "trial" message is suspect, since at some point I saw an AL message that "out of trial" version would not trigger any Tasker activities. However I am a bit confused here since the key is installed and the Tasker is still not triggered.

    Please help!

    I'm on 8.3.x version of GP, so that shouldn't be a problem

    Thanks for the report. Can you please show me how the main screen of the app looks like in a screenshot? Thanks!

    Not sure if that's what you mean by main app, but here's the screen shot for the auto location. Thanks!

    Eh that's the very top :) The white-ish line you see on the right is not a scrollbar :)

    Oh I see! Then it's already the full version. Otherwise it would show an option to purchase the app.

    Can you please export your profile's description (not xml) so I can take a look? Long-click the profile in Tasker->export description Thanks in advance

    Profile: Geofence Home / Away (41)
    Restore: no
    State: AutoLocation Geofences [ Configuration:Geofence Name: Home large
    Status: Inside ]
    Enter: Home / Away (43)
    A1: [X] Variable Set [ Name:%AlStatus To:%alstatus Recurse Variables:Off Do Maths:Off Append:Off ]
    A2: A Mode [ Configuration:Mode: Home Timeout (Seconds):0 ] If [ %alstatus ~ Inside ]
    A3: A Mode [ Configuration:Mode: Away Timeout (Seconds):0 ] If [ %alstatus ~ Outside ]

    Exit: Home / Away (43)
    A1: [X] Variable Set [ Name:%AlStatus To:%alstatus Recurse Variables:Off Do Maths:Off Append:Off ]
    A2: A Mode [ Configuration:Mode: Home Timeout (Seconds):0 ] If [ %alstatus ~ Inside ]
    A3: A Mode [ Configuration:Mode: Away Timeout (Seconds):0 ] If [ %alstatus ~ Outside ]


    Home large is a geofence "Manual name"

    This profile doesn't trigger either...

    Profile: Any geofence (18)
    Event: AutoLocation Geofences [ Configuration:Status: Any ]
    Enter: Geofence Triggered (23)
    A1: Notify [ Title:Geofence triggered Text:Geofence %algeofence is %alstatus at %aldatetime Icon:null Number:0 Permanent:Off Priority:3 ]
    A2: Perform Task [ Name:Check away Priority:%priority Parameter 1 (%par1): Parameter 2 (%par2): Return Value Variable: Stop:Off ]

    All I want here is to get a notification on any geofence, in or out.

    And the sshot has all the geofences I have, 2 of them are on the inside - never triggered in tasker, but log in autolocation has them activated.

    A long shot, but is your Tasker maybe disabled? Has happened before... :)

    nope, not disabled, i have lots of other profiles triggering just fine. Unless I don't understand what you mean by "tasker is disabled"?

    Yes, that's what I meant :)
    Can you try creating that profile as an event instead of a state and see how that works? Thanks!
