[TASKER] Automatic work-phone profile

First (and long overdue post) of 2012! Started a new job so I’ve been pretty busy. With the new job theme I have created a new task in Tasker to make my phone more work friendly. I know there are a load of similar automatic phone profile scripts. Most make your phone go to silent but I need my phone to be more businessy! With my job I am often at clients offices and as a result my mobile will be a key form of communication for my office to get hold of me. 

I want to have a boring businessy ringtone in case it is overheard at client offices, I also want my SMS and email alerts to be silent and not have the distraction of vibration. I do however need vibration for calls otherwise I probably wouldn’t even notice them!

Set normal profile


  1. Day: Sat and Sun

(this isn’t really important but worth NOT overlapping with work times in case you enable this profile)


  1. Default Ringtone [ Type:Ringer Sound:03onceinawhileRingtone ] 
  2. Alarm Volume [ Level:4 Display:Off Sound:Off ] 
  3. Notification Volume [ Level:5 Display:Off Sound:Off ] 
  4. Ringer Volume [ Level:6 Display:Off Sound:Off ] 
  5. Media Volume [ Level:2 Display:Off Sound:Off ] 
  6. Vibrate On Notify [ Set:On ] 
  7. Vibrate On Ringer [ Set:On ] 
This script will normally be disabled but by going into tasks and hitting the test button (looks like a play button) it will reset your settings in case something goes wrong or you are testing other settings.

Set work profile


  1. Day: Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu or Fri
  2. Time: From 08:30 Till 17:30


  1. Alarm Volume [ Level:3 Display:Off Sound:Off ] 
  2. Default Ringtone [ Type:Ringer Sound:Cassiopeia ] 
  3. Media Volume [ Level:0 Display:Off Sound:Off ] 
  4. Ringer Volume [ Level:4 Display:Off Sound:Off ] 
  5. Vibrate On Notify [ Set:Off ] 
  6. Notification Volume [ Level:0 Display:Off Sound:Off ] 
  7. Vibrate On Ringer [ Set:On ]

It’s important to go into settings > sound options and untick ‘link notification and ringer volumes’ if you want them to be different. Sounds obvious but even if you set them different in Tasker, they will be the same. They will be set at the level they were last changed to eg level 0 in this task  – they would both be set to 4 at stage 4 then both to 0 at stage 6!

You can download the profile here. Remember to edit the normal ringtone because unless your normal one is called 03onceinawhileRingtone it won’t work!
