A Tasker Automation has two main components, first is called the profile and second the task. Profile can be defined as a set of conditions that are to be met before the Tasker could do anything. Task on the other end is something that Tasker would do once the conditions are met. You can think in terms of triggers and action or even as cause and effect.
When you are going to launch Tasker, the first thing that you will come across is the profile, but you need to focus on the task instead. Since your main objective is to get something done, therefore it is imperative for you to focus on the task. You also have the option of creating a task first and later associating it with a profile.
