    @fletch there's no guide for that but it's pretty simple.
    - receive AutoShare from the share menu
    - In tasker react to it with the AutoShare event condition
    - in the Task send an AutoRemote message with %asfile() in the Files field

    Hope this helps

    OK I *think* I followed the above and it appears to be almost working. When I try to send a file I get a message that the file doesn't exist. But it looks right..the filename is correct . The message comes up fast, so I could not see the complete path-it's also in white which makes it hard to see. Pretty sure the file path is correct, any ideas why I would get this message?

    Also is there a way to set up the task so I get to chose which device I send the file to rather than having to select one in advance??

    Thanks again..

    What file browser are you sharing the file from?

    To select the device you need to create a Tasker scene where you list your devices and then when you click the device, send the message by device name.

    Hope this helps!
