    Hello there!
    I've been reading here ant there about the "Wait" action inside Tasker and how it blocks action flows. After all this I haven't manage to figure this out: is it a good practice to try to avoid using "Wait" all together? Maybe replace it with time triggered external profiles, where the trigger time is set in the current task (the one that needed "Wait" in the first place)?
    What are your thoughts and practices regarding this subject?

    For me it's a bit of both worlds.
    - If no wait statements are used in certain tasks, it will not work as it should (seems like it jumps certain stuff).
    - Same goes if waits are used that are to long (seems like it never reaches some lines and skips them).
    I'll go by with trial and error for each task.
