    Has anyone heard if Siri will allow you to create a calendar event in a specific calendar if you have multiple calendars setup on your iphone. Say you have a Google Calendar and Exchange calendar on your iphone. Would you be able to specify which account you would want the event to be in when you tell Siri?

    I was about to post this exact same question. I would like to know as well. :confused:

    I have not been able to figure out how to get it to put a meeting on any calendar other than the default calendar (in my case, my Exchange calendar). If someone figures this out, that would be great.

    I am having the same issue, not only can you not have her add to different calendars but more importantly I can't have her read off of all of my other calendars. If it isn't on she doesn't see it. So if I have her add an appointment to the default calendar and I have a conflicting appointment in my exchange calendar she doesn't see it because for whatever reason the only calendar I see on is the iCloud calendar. None of my other calendars are there. I think that's where she looks. Everything goes through the cloud, even when you ask Siri to set an alarm she does it in the cloud first and then it shows up on the phone. It isn't a local process. If you ask her what time it is, she doesn't scrape that from the phone it's scraped from the cloud.

    If anyone knows how to get iCloud to see all of my iCal calendars that would be a really good start for me. Would still love to add to any calendar as well but Siri doesn't even compare all of mine to start with. One step at a time for me.

    Siri does see both my calendars and let's me know if there is a conflict regardless of which calendar the appointment is scheduled on. But when it comes to scheduling, she'll pick the default calendar

    My calendars are separate in iCal, one of them is an exchange calendar. Would be nice if she could at minimum read that calendar to make sure I don't double book anything.
