Individual Profiles - switchable work/home/outdoors.
Would it be at all possible to have individual profiles and be able to switch between 'profiles' for example with a home profile you have say TV guide widget, photo album widget, certain wallpaper etc and on the work profile you might have say Calendar Widget, Email widget, alternative wallpaper etc so basically it switches between two backups according to which profile is chosen.

This idea is from September 2012, but it's a great one, being able to switch launcher profiles (even better with tasker) is the only feature missing.

I would like the ability to have profiles, and Tasker integration as well. This would allow me to have a different layout of icons and screens for different situations. For example, when I'm in the car and have my phone docked, I would like to have only just a couple of icons, like just phone and music player, but them be larger in size to make it easier to press them.
This could honestly make Nova launcher 6/5 stars!
Allow to customize home, away, work profile settings switches.

Multiple profiles is not a new idea, I remember on my old palm treo, with sbp mobile shell would swap profiles in thumb up thumb down from personal to business. I'm sure it'll be in an update.
That would be awsome.

This! I want this! primarily for a Night Mode / Day Mode and School / Work / Home. Nothing too crazy, just the ability to quickly go into settings or use a gesture of some sort to be able to switch between configurations.

Would also like to see support for Llama if possible.

There's a possible workaround to do this now. Using different backups you could switch between them. This would not be as simple as integrated support, but I think you could hack together a tiny bash script or something, and then call that in Tasker.

Ya this is EXACTLY what I am looking for. All I want is for my hidden app selection to change depending on the contexts set in Tasker. All apps visible in drawer at home and no security lock (lockpad I built in tasker assigned to certain apps). Certain apps locked and/or hidden from drawer when away from home.en
This is an issue for me and would help a lot. The default launcher has a net top profile and a phone profile but nova dose not. So all my widgets get mucked up when using my dock with nova. Multi desktop profiles would fix the issue for me. :)
Agreed. While at work I want my work email widget, calendar and work evernote and Astrid widgets front and center. When I get home, I want a different config altogether. Music, photos, social app widgets, etc. I could use other profiles at other times. Seems like it wouldn't be too hard to create, saving multiple launcher configs and then letting me easily select which one I want.

This would be simply amazing! I want my fun widgets during the weekends and my work widgets during work hours.
This would change the game for launchers if this was approved.
If this profile thing here ever happens, it would definately need Tasker support! (Change homescreen profile based on Tasker profiles)
I know it's a separate idea and should be in a separate feature request post but integration with Tasker to set location/time would take it a little bit further.
