    Hi. I am creating a tasker task that send birthday greetings to %acname (%acnumber) if their birthday (%aceventnext) is equal to today's date.

    So far everything goes smooth until recently, I have two friends who have the same birthday. AutoContacts only detect one contact, and cant find the other one.

    Is there a way to send greeting message to both friends?

    Just a question how do you make tasker detect their birthday's from phone contacts or from calendar?
    Also that how do you trigger task on that date?

    Unfortunately there's no way to detect 2 birthdays on the same day for now. Sorry!

    1) on my samsung phone contacts, I insert contact birthday "add event- insert date"
    2) force refresh contacts in AutoContacts
    3) to trigger the task, choose add profile "time - choose 00.01 to 00.06 (means midnight). This will trigger the task on 00.01 midnight.
    4) in tasker autocontact plugins, choose short by "next event". If "next event=today, send birthday message.

    Joaomgcd, can you fix it in future updates?
