Birthday messages

Back to list of posts

I have several profiles set up so I never have to forget to say "happy birthday" to someone.

Profile - Birthday - brother
Entrance conditions: February 16 + From 12:01 am - 12:15 am
(This gives me leeway in case Tasker doesn't check until 12:09 or so)
Task - Birthday - brother
Send SMS
Number: (555) 555-1212
Message: Happy birthday!

Since I don't want them to get messages every few seconds or so for the entire 14 minute time span, I have a forced cooldown period of 1 day. This allows the profile to go off once, then when Tasker does it's checks again, the conditions are no longer met because it is now the next day.

I only did midnight because I like messing with him, but when he gets up and checks his phone, I did wish him happy birthday (in case I can't reach him by calling later).
