Quick Tip: Use Siri to send a reminder to a specific list

Using Siri to setup a reminder on iOS couldn’t be easier. Simply press the button and tell Siri something along the lines of โ€œRemind me to call Shawn Blanc,โ€ and in the task will go.

To attach a location or time to it, include a phrase like โ€œwhen I get homeโ€ or โ€œat 9 p.m.โ€ and iOS will take care of the rest.

However, for those who use Reminders for more than just the random task here and there and have a set of lists setup, it can be frustrating for ad hoc reminders to clutter up the default list.

Thankfully, Siri can move tasks to different lists as well.

After dictating a reminder to iOS, when Siri asks for confirmation to create it, simply state โ€œMove it to my So and so list.โ€

For example, below, you can see a task I created, but my iPhone wanted to drop it in my โ€œInboxโ€ task list. However, I keep The Sweet Setup reminders in a list called โ€œFreelance,โ€ so I requested that Siri move it:

This feature allows users to keep their Reminders lists nice and tidy, just with their voice, which is the whole point of Siri and the built-in apps it can communicate with.
