Trouble starting hotspot.

Running Oreo on a Nexus 6P.  Created what I thought was a simple macro-  Trigger: connect to auto's BT, Action: start hotspot, Condition: connected to power.

Problem is, it just doesn't work.  It's my first time using macrodroid.  What am I missing?

Hotspot has been broken by Google since Android 7.1.1 and there is no way it can be done on a non-rooted device. There is a pop up warning that it may not work on some devices when you first select this action.

If you have a rooted device there is a taser plugin on the play store that can do this, but I don't think it will ever be possible on a non-rooted device again.
