Hi,

I would like to suggest that it is possible to make multible selections for the triggers "Cell Tower Change" and "Location Trigger". A bit like it is already for "Wifi SSID Transition" where it is possible to select more than just one SSID.

It would be a lot easier to change existing macros and also creates a better overview and user experience.

Thank you and cheers,
Roi

Not sure if you mean this but it is already possible to select multiple towers, make multiple groups and select (multiple) groups across your macros.

Hm, I just tested it. I only can select one cell tower group and only one GPS fence.

Ok, only one at a time. But you can select multiple triggers with different groups. Or is your point at selecting them at once?

Yes, that is my point. I want to select more than one group in one trigger. For SSID this already can be done.

Also combined with triggers which are not and cannot be sorted it looks like a real mess in this macro.

In my case I work for a company which has several (10+) office buildings all across the city. So I have different geo fences and different (for a reason) cell tower groups. So you can imagine how the "Enter company" macro looks like at the moment...

I was about to make a request for this feature and I see someone else already did--so I'm just posting to say I would also really appreciate the option to select multiple cell tower groups at once.

In my case, I want my phone to go silent any time I arrive at work OR at a movie theater OR at the dentist. These towers are stored in separately named cell tower groups (and I prefer them that way), but I want the exact same trigger to fire if I'm in range of any of these cell tower groups.
