Yep, here you go.
The reality here is if the community of user developers didn’t exist this platform would be dead in its tracks. This is core functionality, ST is riding the backs of it’s customers to bridge the gap. I work in this business, there isn’t an ETA because we (the users) have created our own workaround which allows them to continue to de-prirotize these types of fixes. If we didn’t have a workaround the monkey would be squarely on ST’s shoulders and they’d had it fixed back in September.
That said, all of us are to blame for this. We can stop developing on our end until they fix critical issues or we can continue to whine about broken functionality because we bailed them out with some janky fix. The former probably won’t happen so the latter will continue to persist.
I will no longer contribute solutions of any kind to this community until ST gets their crap together and stops taking advantage of us. The same actions from a few critical folks would send a good message especially as they onboard new users who will add to the chorus.

Unfortunately I don’t have an ETA to offer on this. I know it’s frustrating, and I apologize for the trouble. Please bear with us though, SmartThings is working on it, I promise.

What is the estimated ETA? Can you give me a projected month? Quarter? Year?(!).
Per the SmartThings community this has been an issue since at least September. Most people install dimmers, if I can’t dim it’s fairly useless the me.
This is a critical bug. Not sure why it’s not a higher priority.

Thank you for the feedback. Unfortunately this is a known issue that our developers are working on implementing a fix for. I’ve tagged your account to receive automatic notification once there is a solution for it. Until then, my apologies for any inconvenience this is causing, and thank you for your patience.

There seems to be a bug with the SmartLighting App which ignores set level requests when creating lighting automations. Lighting triggered by motion or other actions doesn’t dim to the requested level defined in the automation created.
