BasicsHow does Remember The Milk work with Siri?
This feature uses the built in support for the CalDAV standard in iOS to push tasks added with Siri to Remember The Milk. Just follow the quick instructions on our Add tasks with Siri page to get started.
You can specify both due dates and times, and how often a task should repeat.
Remind me to pick up the milk tomorrow
Remind me to call Jimmy at 5pm on Friday
Remind me to return my library books in 2 weeks
Remind me to take out the trash every Tuesday at 5pm
We'll be keeping an eye on Siri's capabilities, in case there's support for additional task properties in the future.
You can add tasks without a due date in a few different ways:
First, you can simply leave out a date when requesting to Siri:
Remind me to read Jane Goodall's book
Second, if Siri responds by asking, "When would you like me to remind you?" you can say:
Last, you can also add the task in another way:
Add "Read Jane Goodall's book" to my Remember The Milk list.
