Ok, by now we have all seen the demos of a user asking Siri about their calendar and Siri replying whether or not anything is scheduled. I work swing shift, which means I might be on 1st shift one week, 3rd shift the next, or off the following week. My question is this....will I be able to put my schedule into my calendar, and then ask Siri what shift I'm on or if I have anything scheduled that day? If so, is there any easy way of inserting my schedule, rather than doing each and every single day manually? Thanks!

It should work but I don't see a shortcut for entering your schedule.

So once my schedule is inserted into my calendar, I should be able to ask Siri: for example....do I have anything scheduled for November 19th. Then if I had put first shift on that date, Siri should say 1st shift?

In theory that's how it will work. Siri will show a popup of calendar for that day.

Me and son have been playing around with reminders and it is actually pretty fun
he has his set to put deodorant on
I have it reminding me to take food out of the freezer when I get home
This is the first week I actaully gotten to play a bid and I mus say once I have Siri and it is a easy set up (vocally) it will be just talking to me left and right and telling me what to do .......

@imutter
Saw the conversation you started. Every time I tried to reply or send a PM, the app crashed. So we will just have it here.  Anyway, do you work at FT. Knox or are you in the service?
