    Hi all, I've been looking for an app or setting that will do what I used to be able to do naively in my windows phone but the only app that seemed to do this very well has recently been updated and seems to not work any more so I thought I'd have a look at tasker. I've fallen at the first hurdle.

    For my calendar I use Outlook (I also replicate my calendar events to google so could use that if needed) and I'd like my phone to go to silent during meetings. Has anyone done this or could anyone point me in the right direction to get this started?

    Thanks

    Try creating a profile with the Calendar condition and then in the task use the Do Not Disturb action :)

    New Profile>Event>App>Calendar Entry

    If you leave all the fields blank in that action , it will match any calendar entry you have in any calendar you have. If you only want to match certain events, then the title field needs to match the name of your calendar entry. When you are adding the profile event or adding actions the icon at the top right of Tasker with the question mark or the i usually has some pretty good information as to how to set up the fields also.

    Here's an example profile.
    Profile: Calendar Event (350)
    State: Calendar Entry [ Title:* Location:* Description:* Available:Any Calendar:* ]
    Enter: Anon (351)
    A1: Do Not Disturb [ Mode:No Interruptions ]

    Exit: Anon (352)
    A1: Do Not Disturb [ Mode:Allow All ]
