HomePod Workflow

Hey everyone!

Has anyone figured out a Shortcut/Workflow to add to an existing Agenda note through audio only (like with a HomePod)? I want to be able to dictate the stuff for when typing is hard.

I can do this with Siri on my phone, but for HomePod, it doesn’t have the app to do URL schemes, so I wonder if an intermediary of some kind could help do the work here.



Playing with this a little bit, it looks like I can append to Notes, and then just need to transfer the content to Agenda later.

The other little catch is that I timestamp entries and would love to account for that somehow, but some manual intervention isn’t bad. Here is the draft Shortcut I am using for capture to Notes, and then this is a simple Shortcut to move Notes content to an Agenda note I make for each day titled as EEEE MMMM dd, yyyy.

Would love ideas and thoughts!

Out of curiosity, what is missing in order to be able to append to Agenda immediately?

A Shortcut relies on the app to be able to append, since it’s a URL scheme. The HomePod doesn’t have a sense of the app (I guess?), so says that “you need to continue on your iPhone”.

Unless I did something wrong?

I see, we probably need to support certain intents

Just re-upping this to add same for Watch. I would love to be able to append to a note from Watch, but because URL scheme is the only way, neither Watch nor HomePod can accomplish this.

Maybe there’s a clever workaround some has?
