Smart Actions Add Rule Malfunction

2012-08-23, 15:41 PM

Recently I have upgraded to ICS.  I have now discovered that I cannot add rules, nor can I edit those currently in existance.  This is not a location issue; this is concerning the editing of any new and or current rule on Smart Actions.

I will give the step by step as follows:

1 - Start SA.

2 - Press +

3 - Press Blank rule

4 - Name New rule (Name = Test), press Done

5 - Press TRIGGERS +

6 - Press (in this case) Timeframe

7 - Select Morning

8 - Press DONE.  TRIGGER Timeframe: Morning IS DISPLAYED

9 - Press ACTIONS +

10-Press Ringer volume

11-Select Silent

12-Press Save

**TRIGGER IS GONE.  "Tap the plus sign to add triggers and make this rule automatic." is displayed.


This occurrence happens for any rule configured any way at any given time.  I have cleared all data and cache info in both the Smart Actions app as well as the Smart Actions FW app.  I have restarted my phone.  I have uninstalled the updates and run the program in a previous version.  I have reinstalled the updates and used the most current version to date.  I have done everything except for a another Factory Reset (which I performed in order to freshly install ICS), but I believe that to be extreme for the minor inconvenience of not being able to use Smart Actions.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

i am not sure why you did a reset to install ICS, but there have been issues where SA didn't  behave correctly and a factory reset after the ICS update solved the problem.
