    I want to be able to use Siri while driving to add reminders to specific lists, and so far it has not worked. I say "Hey Siri, add reminder to things to do, pickup computer after work"

    This results in Siri adding a reminder but not to the things to do list.

    Is there a specific way I need to do this to get it done?

    Thanks.

    Right. Another example, I have a list called Shopping. I say, "hey siri, add milk to my shopping list" and she does. Next visit to the store and milk is on my list.

    This used to work properly, but no longer does. I used to be able to add an item to a specific list, with a reminder for a specific date and time. Now I can only do one or the other. Siri will no longer create a reminder with a due date/alarm and put it on a list that is different then the default list. If someone can get it to work I'd like to know what you're doing.

    For instance I say add call Gina to my work list for Friday at 2 PM. It doesn't work like it previously did. Can anyone get this to work?

    You're 100% correct, it is working. For a few weeks I could not get this to work. Today it works...from the Apple Watch too!
