call filter improvements

Post by engiman » Fri Nov 01, 2013 1:19 pm

customize order of rules (not just allow rules then block rules, like now).
for example:
rule 1: allow vip group, every day 0.00-23.59
rule 2: block customer group temporary, every day 0.00-23.59, (Generally this rule is turned off, but I turn it on, when I am at not working)
rule 3: allow customer group, every workday 8.00-18.00


new action beside allow, block, silent then execute tasker task! (allow+execute tasker task, block+execute tasker task, silent+execute tasker task, just execute tasker task and go to next rule)
for example:
When rule 2 is on (see the example above), rule 2: block customer group temporary + execute tasker task, ....
tasker send an e-mail to my colleges, this customer try to reach us..


tasker functcion to enable or disable rules !
dwp filter rules are based on time, with tasker filter rules could based on place also (or anything..)
for example:
tasker task: When I am driving, turn rule 2 on
or
if workplace wifi is connected, then rule 2 is off.

Hello
I'm sorry I did not understand the meaning. You need to customize the rules of the sort. Then sorted according to enforce the rules.

Hello Devin,

Still need ordering rule function!

Now I can not block a group just a simple tick if I have an allow rule before. (I want filter just a group, but everyone else can call me. Adding numbers one by one is not so comfortable, it is good for permanent blocking.)

Hello
You can not exclude them from the allow rule?

Hello Devin,

I am a satisfied user for years, but this feature is still missing. I have to use tasker to drop calls (it works, but I dont like it).

Now my filters are (this is just a simle version, i have more customers level, etc):

allow family from 8-22
allow vip always
allow every incoming from 9-17 on workdays
allow customers from 8-19 on workdays
filter all incoming
--------------------
and need this

filter blocked group
allow family from 8-22
allow vip always
allow every incoming from 9-17 on workdays
silence some customer from 13-14 (they are also members of the customer group)
allow customers from 8-19 on workdays
filter all incoming

Unfortunatelly blocked group changes from day by day sometimes, so it is not a solution, to take a contact into the blocked group and take out from customers, and a day after change back.

I think ordering filter rules could solve all my problems, makes dw filter not just a filter, but a real firewall :)

I hope you would impement this new feature. :)

Regards
Balazs

I am sorry, but i am still fighting with call filter.

Please read again my previous post. My main problem is still rule ordering!
You say in the help it is a firewall, but it is not!

Most of my contacts are in multiple groups. Some groups are blocked, some can call, depends on when they want to reach me.

In your call filter, cant set which rule is more important. Please add rule numbering possibility, and call filter will be a real Firewall.

Autoclose? Any new setting in firewall is highly appreciated, but I dont understand what it does.. I cant find any help about it.


Anyway, I had a factory reset, before I had a backup with backups manager. Filter rules arent restored! Is it ok?

(I also hate the new blue icon, restore the black one)

Filter by number has been where.
