Location Trigger Issue

2012-04-01, 0:41 AM

I created a short test action.



Triggers: Location


Actions: Send Text Message



It activated in the wrong location (by several miles). This happened unnoticed to me so I can't be sure how long it was activated. Later in the day I went to the trigger location, it properly sent a text. After leaving the location the action stayed active for over and hour. I eventually made the action 'manual only'.


I have since re-enabled the action and will post if I come across any other buggy behavior.

I've captured your comments and will bring back to the team.


What version of Smart Actions are you using? 


CURRENT VERSION:2.1.2.0 If you don't have the latest, upgrade and see if it works better.


Thx

I am running 2.1.2.0. Howver, if this update came out recently I can't be sure I was up to date when this happened. I have not been able to recreate the bug. Sorry I can't be of more help on this one. If it happens again I'll be sure to post.

Yes the update was on Mar 21. If you do encounter the issue again just let me know, we're still going to investigate on our end.


Thx for the feedback!

I too am having a location trigger issue.


I have a trigger set up every time I enter a certain place.  But, recently, that trigger has been activating no matter where I am.  I have the trigger set as Location and Timeframe.  I thought it might be the Timeframe, but the Action activates no matter what.


I am running the latest Smart Actions software.

Ok I have this issue captured.


So I'm assuming you tested by disabling the timeframe trigger to verify.


To fix, try deleting the location (long press the location to delete) and adding it back again. Maybe the location data got messed up somehow. If that doesn't fix it, you can always clear the cache, but this is much more agressive and you will lose your custom rules.

Thanks!


I had already tried the timeframe trigger.  But, I didn't clear the cache.


I just cleared it and the Action is working perfectly now.

I have seen a similar issue.  I have tried setting up the Location Trigger for where I work.  I Would  like to be able to set it up where I get to the parking lot and it goes to vibrate and it stays there all day.  Being indoors maybe the GPS isn't as accurate and because of the property size my location might bounce around a bit and it doesn't think I am at that same location anymore and turns the ringer back on.  


I have tried to associate multiple locations to the same location trigger but I still have issues with it.

I have also had this Location Trigger issue several times.  I've deleted and reset the trigger and I've deleted my cache three times.  The cache deletion solved it in the past.  I'm running Smart Actions 2.1.2.0 and just got the issue again when I upgraded phone OS to 6.12.181.XT912.Verizon.en.US.


Please fix this app.  I love it but the Location Trigger has become unreliable and caused me to miss several calls as Smart Actions thinks I'm at work when I'm 10+ miles away.
