    Hi all, I own a Samsung S9 with the original Led View cover. It's good overall (ehm, the cover) but I really miss the notification led that is... Covered by the cover, so instead of making a hole manually I'm thinking about using tasker and autonotifications to repeat a notification every X seconds and make the led view cover think that it's a new notification, so the cover will show let's say a dot every X seconds like the phisical notification led.
    I've already tried some pieces of tasks found on internet but none can satisfy me... Basically I would have to:
    - intercept the notification
    -until I open the cover, repeat every X seconds the notification but in silent mode
    - if possible, keep the ringer/vibrate for incoming calls and for sure restore the ringer/vibrate mode when the cover is opened

    I've also tried myself the snooze function of autonotification, but if the ringer is on it will keep ringing every X seconds...

    Thanks a lot for any suggestion

    Hi. What about that can't you get to work exactly? What have you tried?

    Hi, the simplest task I've tried is just a loop that start with the event "Autonotification Intercept Event Behaviour" for an app:
    1: Wait 10 seconds
    2: Autonotification Snooze the notification of that app for 5 seconds
    3: Goto 1

    But the notification will be repeated (and shown on Led Cover) with the audio profile active, and it's not very practical...my phone will vibrate or make a sound every 10 seconds...if possible, I would like Autonotifications to repeat a silent notification every X seconds for that app without modifying the current sound profile, like the notification led do. Maybe changing the Notification category for that app until I read or dismiss the notification...
    Thanks!

    Ah yes, maybe you can simply add a AutoNotification Category action to that task to change the category? :)

    Hi Joao, I think I've found a simpler way to make led view cover blink when notifications are still unread. I'm trying to use built-in tasker alerts, so I set the tasker user notifications to silent and my profile is now

    event: "Autonotification Intercept Event Behaviour" for app x
    task:
    1. wait y seconds
    2. Notify
    3. wait z seconds
    4. Notify Cancel
    5. Goto Type Action Number Number 1

    Then I assign Tasker notifications to be displayed by a Led shape with Led View Cover Editor.

    With this, every time I receive a notification from app x, after y seconds Tasker start to send a (silent) notification every y+z seconds and if the cover covers the screen a led icon will be shown.

    The problem is that I want to stop Tasker to repeat its notifications when I open the cover (and view the notification of the app x). I've tried to add the condition "if screen is off" to task number 5 but it's not working, so by now the profile is unusable (Tasker notification repeat forever).
    How can I make Tasker stop generating notifications when I open the cover? Do you know what condition is when I see Samsung S9 lock screen? Is there any other condition in the loop I can use?

    Thanks a lot

    What does %SCREEN show when you test it in the task?
