Woven now supports Siri shortcuts in the Woven iOS app.  Siri shortcuts allow you to interface with Woven purely through voice commands.  They also provide some scripting capabilities for more advanced features.  

Some examples of what you can do with Siri shortcuts:

  • Assign a voice command to any template - "Hey Siri - schedule a coffee meeting"
  • Automatically propose times on your calendar to someone - "Hey Siri - suggest times for coffee"
  • Automatically schedule an event based on the first available time for participants - "Hey Siri - make a date night with Shannon"

To take advantage of these features, you need to do a little bit of configuration.  This article assumes that you have already created a set of templates that match your needs.  (you can learn more about smart templates here)

This will take you to the following screen:

From this point you can press the record button and use any phrase to invoke the template - for example - "Schedule Drinks".

Using a Siri Shortcut

Once the template is connected to a Siri shortcut, to use it, you simply tell Siri what to do:

That's it!
