    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.

    (See Joao's note below. The Group Summary can be created as many times as one wishes, as long as it has the same ID, there will be no duplicate summary notifications).

    Regarding the Text field in the Group Summary:

    Where this can come into play - AutoNotification can query the existence of a Group Summary by 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.

    Is it possible to group AutoNotification Buttons notifications? Creating more than 3 forces them to stack/collapse.

    Much appreciated!

    Using Android 8.1.0 on LineageOS (PH-1 device).

    Would this process work for grouping YouTube notifications throughout the day? Is there anything I should change or add? Thanks for all the hard work. You are very talented.

    This works for grouping AutoNotification notifications, not other app's notifications, sorry!

    I intercept YouTube notifications and recreate them in autonotification. When I do the summary, with the above example where there are 2 autonotification actions before the grouping summary, I get duplicate notifications for each notification created. Where am I going wrong? Should I just one create notification action? Here is my task. I figured out this issue. Thanks

    I got the YouTube group to work. I intercept populate fields, cancel the original, create the autonotification, group them together. It works great, but I also have the notifications seperate, outside the group. Can someone point me in the right direction? Should I then cancel the autonotification one that was created after they group?

    @terry henderson, I have the exact same issue with duplicate notifications. Did you get it resolved?
