Tip – Hey Siri…Remind Me…

It is amazing at all of the features or tips that I think, no need to tell anyone that because they have to know it and later learn it is not known. With that in mind, to help everyone with their own New Year’s resolution to increase productivity, planning and organization, consider this tip and scenario.

You have an inspiration, thought or idea you want to capture and remind yourself about later and you think…I’ll remember that, no need to write it down or enter it…and then later you think what was that thing I wanted to do or worse, you forget you even had that thought.

What if there was an easy way to capture and remind yourself about an idea that takes little to no effort…? There is…and it’s as simple as using your iCloud reminders with Siri but you do not even have to type anything.

You can ask Siri to schedule a reminder for you using your iOS device or your Apple Watch or while wearing connected AirPods while you are doing things like taking a walk, at the gym or going somewhere.

Here are a few examples of things to try after saying “Hey Siri”:

“Remind me at 11 am tomorrow call Bob about the Project.”

“Remind me when I get to the office draft letter to Anna about payment.”
“Remind me to feed the dog every day at 7:30 a.m.”
“Remind me when I get home to check the mail.”
“Remind me when I leave here to stop by the grocery store.”
“Remind me tomorrow at 3:00 p.m. to call Tara.”

You can add your home and work addresses to your card in Contacts to allow Siri to help you set location-based reminders. To do this, open the Contacts app, then tap My Card. Tap Edit, add your work or home address, then tap Done.

Try it now…”Hey Siri, remind me at 7 tonight, create a reminder to work on something tomorrow.”
