    if I build a task with a dialog, any dialog (even existing tasks that worked before will stop working in thsin scenario)
    I Can run it from tasker, as many times as I want, until the point I'm trying to run it from a widget or a shortcut, from that point I can not run any task with a dialog, even from tasker directly.
    it either show me an error, or freeze tasker
    Even restart the phone does not solve it. (i.e the task will run until I run it from a widget again)

    To temporarily solve (after I run it from a widget) I can go into tasker, click edit on one of the tasks dialog action, and save the configuration, from that point I can run any task with a dialog from tasker it will work until the next time I will try to run a task from a widget.

    Another interesting fact, if I run task A from shortcut (froze of course), then enter tasker edit task B's (dialog item) and save , and then run from tasker task B, I will actually see task B's Dialog run on top of task A's Dialog (that was frozen before, now will appear) - strange right?

    Need tasker developer to fix this bug ASAP, as all my tasks does not work anymore- and Im sure many others have the same issue, I checked with a friend who has S10+ as well, and he expiriance the exact same behavior.

    here is the error :

    Hi. Did I maybe reply to this via email? In essence you should allow AutoTools to display over other apps. See if that works.

    Try going to Android Settings > Apps > menu > Special Access > Appear on Top > Enable AutoTools. Does that help?

    Hello,

    I am facing the same issue with Autotools Dialog box/Webscreen.

    as per the suggestion from the Developer/Admin, I cross checked and ensured that the Autotool app has permission to "display over other apps" in my OnePlus 7T device. The task works whenever I edit the Dialogbox/Webescreen and test it immediately but during actual scheduled runs it simply fails with the error mentioned by nirmelamoud and does not display anything.

    I only recently purchased the Autotools (v)2.2.3 and am trying out enhance my various tasks.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Error message excerpt:

    Thank you joaomgcd for your prompt response with the links!

    Based on the points mentioned in the first two links both apps were running in foreground. But unfortunately Autoapps was still being battery optimized in the background. Once it was set to "Don't optimize" state the Dialogbox/webscreen error disappeared. I will continue to conduct more test runs but for now the fix seems solid. (I didnt have to revert the google drive version you shared)

    Thanks again for your help. Hopefully, I will get better with the debugging error messages on my own.
