    Can anybody explain a little bit that how exactly it works? Like what criteria are set to achieve this?

    I'm sorry, but I don't understand how it works. I imported the project, set up the required profile and used my task. I then turned it off then on several times and nothing happened. I don't understand what the "Sleep Time" is for.

    This is for doing a task the first time you unlock your device each day. The Sleep time is just when the variable resets itself so that the first time you unlock your device after that time, this task runs.

    Let's say for example each morning when you unlock you phone you wanted it to announce to you the weather and your schedule for the day but you only wanted it to do it the first time you unlock your phone in the morning. This task would accomplish that by doing it once and then not again until after the Sleep Time was reset.

    Thanks for the quick reply. It looks like you have to leave your phone on in order to reset. Usually I shut my phone down, so I'll have to come up with a way where it will reset when phone is shutting down.

    Yes this would require that your phone be on at the time of the Sleep Time reset. But, you could set a variable on the first boot of the day and maybe use it that way. Something like set a variable to current date and then at boot, run task to check that variable against the current date again. If current date > lastdateset then run task and set lastdateset to new date.
