Android Calendar

Sound Profile is able to interact with the Android Calendar in your Android device. This allows you to activate a profile from an event in your Calendar. For example if you have a Meeting from 10:00 to 10:30 in your Android Calendar, this could activate Silent profile. After that, at 10:30, it will revert back to previous profile (whatever it was before activating Silent).

The way of doing this is to write the words *sp:Silent* inside that Calendar event (in the name, description, notes or details field). Sound Profile will scan your Calendar events and if it finds one with the letters *sp:xxx* then it will activate the profile called xxx at the time of the event.

PLEASE, PAY ATTENTION:

When typing the letters *sp:xxx* you have to type the * characters also.

You cannot type extra blanks.

All these examples are WRONG:

sp:xxx ← Wrong ⛔ missing *

*sp: xxx* ← Wrong ⛔ extra blank

*sp :xxx* ← Wrong ⛔ extra blank

* sp:xxx* ← Wrong ⛔ extra blank

* sp:xxx * ← Wrong ⛔ extra blanks

This example is CORRECT:

*sp:xxx* ← Correct ✅

As you can see in this example, if the profile name has blanks, then of course, you need to leave them. In this example:
*sp:Priority contacts only*

Android Calendar + Sound Profile Scheduler

You are also able to change the current Scheduler using your Android Calendar.

For example, when Christmas holidays start, activate “Scheduler for Holidays”. After Christmas activate “My normal scheduler”.

In July 1st activate “Scheduler for vacations”. On July 31st activate “My normal scheduler”.

All this is possible using the Android Calendar and Sound Profile. Let’s say you have a Sound Profile Scheduler called Scheduler A and another called Scheduler B. You could add an Android Calendar event called “Switch scheduler” (or any other name) whenever you want. For example, every Sunday, or every-other Sunday, or at the beginning of the summer, or whatever. In the event you should write the words *sp:Scheduler A* in the Event title, description, notes or details fields…

Sound Profile will scan your Calendar Events and if it finds one with the letters *sp:xxx* then it will activate the specified Scheduler.

Please pay attention, names must match exactly. Don’t forget the characters * and do not add any extra blanks as described above.

  1. On Normal profile, my calendar is sending silent notifications – not good for getting my attention!
    I use the aCalendar app, which gets all it’s info from my Google calendars.

  2. Hi Toni
    I’m having trouble with the calendar integration. For several years now I’ve been using the tags in my google calendar entries and it was all working fine until yesterday, when it stopped having any effect.

    Now I see it’s changed to *sp:Silent* but that doesn’t seem to be working either.

    Thanks for any pointers!

  3. Good Day! I’m running into an issue where my Android calendar profile “activates” but the sounds are still set to another profile (i.e. driving on Bluetooth) because it left one profile after the Android calendar profile activated. Is there a way to set priorities so that Android Calendar entries always take precedence over others?
