Routines

brendanwheatley 4 weeks ago • updated 4 weeks ago 2

I'm new to smart things and now action tiles. I'm having trouble understanding routines. I have selected a routine to create a tile, but I can't make it do anything. I've looked over this forum and can't find anything that talks about what they are in depth. I thought they might allow me to automate things. It looks like there is an area when building tiles to select from different ones, but it is empty. Any help would be huge. Thanks

First question, Brendan:


Please note that ActionTiles just executes routines that you define in the SmartThings Classic App.


  • Are you using the SmartThings Classic App, or the new SmartThings (Samsung Connect) App?
  • "Routines" don't really exist in the new App; so please be sure to use SmartThings Classic.


Next...


  • Where are you getting stuck in the SmartThings Classic App Routine creation and execution?


Thanks,

...Terry.

Thanks! That sorted it. Why did they even come up with a new app?
