Hi all,

I want to run a task per Homescreen Shortcut and with parameters.

The Standard Tasker Shortcut has no possibility, but the App Shortcut Maker show me the following under Extras

Key
mcro

Value
<Task sr=""><id>-156</id><Img sr="icn"ve="2"><cls>net.dinglisch.android.taskerm.Tasker</cls><pkg>net.dinglisch.android.taskerm</pkg></Img><nme>TasksName</nme><pri>7</pri><rty>2</rty><Action sr="act0"ve="7"><Str sr="arg0"ve="3">TasksName</Str><Int sr="arg1"val="7"/><Str sr="arg2"ve="3"/><Str sr="arg3"ve="3"/><Str sr="arg4"ve="3"/><Int sr="arg5"val="1"/><Int sr="arg6"/><Str sr="arg7"ve="3"/><Int sr="arg8"/><Int sr="arg9"/><code>130</code><Int sr="arg10"/></Action><cdate>1625766078029</cdate><edate>1625766078029</edate></Task>

and offers me fields "Additional" with Key and Value under Extras, where I hope, I can submit own Parameters to the task.
Can someone help me please, how to fill these additional extras, to submit for example a phonenumber and a SIM Label to a task from the shortcut if this is possible.

Thanks in advance for all answers

Found a way to do what I need

Replace <nme>TasksName</nme> with  <nme>xyz</nme>and you can get xyz as %caller(1) in task

Save a lot of tasks for me
