This morning, beloved leader Victor wondered how he could create reminders using Siri without having those reminders tied to a specific time. He loves Siri’s easy voice integration but didn’t want to schedule these items. He just wanted to add them to his to-do list.


You bet. The secret lies in the way you phrase your request. If you ask Siri to “remind” you, it adds a scheduled item. Saying “remind” is always tied to time.

Instead, say “remember”. Try saying “Remember to pick up the milk” rather than “Remind me to pick up the milk.” Siri adds that item to the Reminders app without a time cue.

As Victor noted, “Arggh! I was saying it wrong, all this time.”

Want more Siri tips? There’s a book for that.
