Apple - Can I have iOS Automation shortcuts run automatically?

EDIT: This has improved with iOS 14: In iOS 14, Turn off "Ask Before Running" to avoid getting a notification and have automations run automatically in the background. See full list at See

Not all triggers can make an automation run in the background.

When you Arrive, Leave, connect to CarPlay, or use the Before I Leave or Time of Day triggers, or try to automate connecting to Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, your shortcuts will only show up as notifications and won't run in the background. These are the only triggers where a user may not be in control of their device or it's state, and thus seem to be limited for security reasons – all other triggers can run in the background. See under "Personal automation". It's a long page, so cmd + F.
