In this article, we will talk about how to use Siri to create fairly complex reminders containing links to websites, geolocation points, as well as various actions in applications.
For these purposes, you can use the new application Teams, however sometimes it will be much faster to do the same using Apple’s voice assistant. Try it!

How to quickly create complex reminders using Siri, including links, app actions, location, and more.
At the center of the entire scheme is the function Remind me from Siri. How to use it? You do something on the iPhone, and then just ask the “apple” virtual assistant to remind you “about it” and name the time after which it must be done.
Example 1 (creating a reminder containing a link to an article)
You are reading an article on your smartphone, and you need to take a break for a couple of minutes. You call Siri directly from this web page (using a button or voice command “Hey Siri”) and say:
“Remind me about it [т.е. о последнем действии] in three minutes.”
The passphrase that must be present when creating a request for Siri is “about it”. Siri knows that the last action was browsing the web, and that is why the command “about it” tells the voice assistant to create a reminder with a specific condition.
As a result, after the specified time, the corresponding “reminder” will appear in the Notification Center. In addition, a corresponding notice will be placed in the application. Reminders.
If you click on this notification, the application will open Reminders with a reminder note. To the right of it will be the Safari icon (in our case). Click on it – it will automatically switch to Safari, and you can read the article to the end.

Example 2 (creating a reminder to write an email)
Open the app mail, compose a new email, launch Siri and say:
“Remind me of this today at 7:55 pm.”
Siri will create a reminder that will launch an existing draft in the app mail.
Such a scheme can work with almost any application, if its developer has added support Siri commands. The most popular iOS apps have already received support for Siri shortcuts.
Another feature to keep in mind is the ability to ask Siri to remind you of something when you’re in a certain place. For example: “Hey Siri, remind me of this when I get home.” As a result, the voice assistant will display a reminder every time you appear in your native land – as long as you do not mark the task as completed.
Other options are also possible: for example, “at 8 am”, “every day”, etc.
With application Teams your iPhone / iPad has learned to make life even more convenient, so it’s a sin not to use it. Be sure to check out these options for boosting a mobile device using the application Teams.
