Hi, how to get an app to fire off when macrodroid is "started up" , but only if it hasn't been used in a while?

How can I make it so that whenever I launch or re enable (2 different trigger cases in aware) I have a trigger that checks for if a macro has not been set off in the past day that it will automatically start up when I turn on macrodroid?

I hope it makes sense, I have an app that needs to be opened every 24 hours + 1 minute but the interval trigger isn't working as expected...?(it never goes off, maybe because I don't have macrodroid on all the time, but really? )

I tried working with macrodroid initialized + app invoked/not invoked , neither seem to work.

So anyway that's why I have that question but if you can teach me how interval timer can work that would be simpler too... I tried to find a template to mimic so if you know one then please point it out? I'm just not very good at understanding the triggers it seems...

If you coast reddit I've posted and didn't get much an answer so I am trying here.

Other things a single person could answer:
Also whoever is reading this who has the power I would like if updating the wiki would be more visible/priority via a pin because it would really be helpful. Thanks for your hard work..

Also if there is a discord...?

Have you looked in the troubleshooting section? Follow dontkillmyapp.com steps and see what logs say, screenshots are useful here as well. Maybe we need to rewrite macros or something and that's fine. Regarding the Wiki, I'll have a go at adding more information as I've not done so on ages.

Lastly, please check for updates to MacroDroid as one has been released today to 5.13.5. If you don't see the update, clear cache for Google play store and check again or wait a few days as Google is slow at rollouts

Hey, Jacob, thanks for your reply. Yeah I did what I can with dontkillmyapp but aside from that I believe that since I downloaded macrodroid it's more at risk of killing my phone but that's another issue.

So you're saying that for macros to work I should always be running macrodroid? Yes I've been trying every trigger...but a wiki update would really help. Anyway I'm not sure what solution you had in mind by asking that question.

These are all the triggers I've tried but don't understand and the help menu is 0 help.

The wiki is not made public yet since as you point out the content is rather lacking. It was created with the best intents and has had a decent start from myself and the very helpful users who have contributed. Unfortunately I didn't get many volunteers to contribute and my time is so limited else it impacts all the support and development which is always more of a priority.

I'm sure it will get there in the end and once there is a decent percentage of content filled out I will make it accessible from the app/web page etc.

Tysm dev <3 , I am not experienced in contributing to wikis so apologies if I came off as ungrateful.

I would ask to volunteer myself but I'm not sure if I could carry any weight/get in the way unless there is a very simple way for people like us to contribute?

I am intending to make the wiki public with the next update. It will still lack content but hopefully once it's more visible I can get a few more volunteers to flesh it out a bit more.
