Plug-in decision

An decision block that checks a “condition” of an app which support the Tasker and Locale plug-in architecture.

If the proceed option is set to Immediately, then check the current “condition” without pausing the fiber. If set to When changed, then the fiber will pause until the “condition” is changed by the plug-in.

Variables in Tasker plug-ins must be preceded by a % character. Automate has no such requirement, so any preceding % character will be removed for the output variables names.

Privacy warning! When a plug-in has been configured, the configuration will be stored in the flow, the data within it is foreign to Automate and may contain sensitive information. Be wary of sharing a flow using this block.


  • Plug-in — plug-in to invoke.
  • Proceed — when the fiber should proceed.

Output variables

If a plug-in support result variables, a list of variables may be displayed once the plug-in has been configured. An alternative, if no variables are displayed, is to enable Allow plug-in to set any variable and assign the variables from within the plug-in during configuration.

Note! This documentation is also accessible within the app from Help & feedback menu.
