Hi, i need some help

I have a few routines set to turn lights on (or off) at specific times daily. But which ones are actually running and which need to be re started ? I dont see any indications in google home which are active, and i cant wait around for a start or stop time 

Also, how do i stop a daily routine once its started ?

Thanks for any hints

Jim

Just had another look, and Answering my own questions, 

nothing is visible in the list of routines, but when I open one up there is a checkbox in the top right that  shows is “on”. So I guess that’s the indicator for actually running, and also the off switch

it’s a shame I have to open up each and every individual routine rather than seeing a summary on the main list of routines page 

this is on iOS by the way

Hey there,
I understand that issues with routines can be confusing but I definitely wanted to stop by and see how I could help.

Just wanted to double check to see if you were still needing help on this? If so, what troubleshooting steps have you tried? I would suggest reviewing this article about routines to see if it helps you with your question.

Please let me know.

Best regards,

Thanks Garrett, I had read and have now re read the article 

the routines are actually running ok, checked by observation, my issue was a way to “see/visualise” in google home which of the many routines were actually active/running, and also to have a way to stop them

there must be something on the screen to show this but I must be missing it

regards
