When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Amended routine not propagating
« on: October 07, 2019, 02:43:33 pm »
Hi,  I had a routine which was working as I required.  I made some changes (added an additional action and removed one action).  The changes are not being propagated to the Echo, i.e. the routine is triggered and runs but using the actions before I changed them.

I have re-booted (power cycled) the echo, no improvement.

Any suggestions welcome.

 Be sure to hit NEXT after you make the changes otherwise they dont take effect. I did that a few times before I realized.

Thanks for that.  Tried that but has made no difference.  I have even deleted the whole routine now but it still keeps running!

weird or what.

Resolved!  There was a setting in the Alexa App which by coincidence had the same effect, so I switched this off and now my routine is working.  I guess the latest update of the Alexa app included this new setting.

 Glad to hear you got it going. Got to LOVE those updates which make things "better"
