    How am I suppose to speak to Siri to schedule a dinner with someone without it sending a calendar invitation? I'm just eating with a friend, he doesn't need to receive a calendar invitation it's not a business meeting.

    I tried saying "schedule a dinner with <friend's name> at tomorrow 7 pm". I don't want the calendar invitation but I DO want the calendar event to say "Dinner with ___".

    Thanks.

    Try "Schedule an event called 'dinner with Bob' for tomorrow at 7 PM"

    Can't you just set a reminder instead of using the calendar?

    No a calendar is a completely different thing, it has a time block etc and should check for collision etc

    Here's a slight modification:

    "schedule an appointment for tomorrow at 7pm for 3 hours called <friend name> dinner."

    Here is how you do it: say this exactly "schedule quote dinner with Johhny end quote tomorrow at 7pm"

    No email will be sent.
