Adding items to a default list item via Siri voice

    Any new thoughts on this suggestion? It is very handy on iOS to be able to do this to reminders. Ideally the user would have a pref where the default would be (A List, a new list with a given name if it doesn't already exist, etc).

    Having given this more thought I have a suggestion on implementation:

    Since the newest iOS versions allow using Siri to access other applications (assuming the developer permits such) this should now be doable.

    -Add to Workflowy's Settings an item called "New VoiceItem Default List". With a workflow list like this....

    +Home List

         +Reminders For Today

    +Work List

         +Stuff To Do

    ....you might have the "New VoiceItem Default List" set to equal to

    "/Home List/Reminders For Today"

     

    -Then, when speaking into Siri, something like "Workflow AddItem Mow the lawn"

    ....would add the item to the list like this:

     

    +Home List

         +Reminders For Today

              +Mow the lawn

    +Work List

         +Stuff To Do

     

    This would give a basic voice operated method of *quickly* adding items to workflowy that can be edited a re-arranged later.

    Every single day I wish Workflowy would have the feature of being able to add a task by using Siri. I don't use Siri for anything else either, but would use this feature an enormous amount of times per day/

    Now that ios12 has released and implemented shortcuts for Siri integration into third party apps, perhaps we can see some updates in workflowy to utilize it.

    Still hoping for being able to speak “hey Siri....add to workflowy don’t forget to pick up milk on the way home”

    Workflowy’s preferences setting could have a selector indicating the list/sub item under which to add the new item.

    "Hey Siri, add [an item] in WorkFlowy". At the very least, this could be easy to implement and very useful when you want to add a quick item so you don't forget to add it later. Then you can edit it later when you are at the office, and move it manually to the exact desired place that item should be. But at least this way we would be able to quick add stuff directly into WorkFlowy. The way I am doing it now is, for example: "Hey Siri, add a reminder to pay $400 to Peter next Friday". But later, in the edit instance (when I'm at the office), I have to go into Apple Reminders native app, copy the tasks I entered via Siri, and paste them into WorkFlowy. Being able to ask Siri to add something directly into WorkFlowy would make all these redundant steps unnecessary.

    +1 for this feature. Should be doable with iOS shortcuts.  

    A related question when using Siri/dictation within the iOS app.  How can you get it to end an item?  (In some apps, "new line" or "new paragraph" works, but that hasn't worked for me in Workflowy.)

    Is there an ETA on this feature? This would be the #1 feature I would like WF to have.
