Adding tasks via Siri

On iOS 11 and higher, you can add tasks to Nozbe via Siri on your iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. Please note it does not work on macOS. It may come in future updates.

After installing Nozbe from the App Store, you will be prompted to grant access to Siri. Just tap OK, and that’s it. If you haven’t been asked for it automatically, go to the Settings app on your iPhone -> Nozbe -> Siri & Search and make sure that you have both options turned on.

On iOS, you cannot select your default app for tasks/reminders. That’s why if you say to Siri: "Remind me about sending wedding invitations tomorrow at 5 PM" Siri will add it to iOS Reminders app, not Nozbe. If you want to add the task/reminder to Nozbe, you have explicitly say this. We recommend to say it at the begin of a sentence. Here are some examples:

"In Nozbe remind me to do my weekly review on Friday at 8 AM"

"Using Nozbe add a task to prepare a Keynote to presentation list" - if you want to add task to specific project in Nozbe you need to use word “list” instead of project

Siri understands adding tasks with:

"In Nozbe add a task to call John #priority" - You can also use Hashtags to add other parameters. Just say “hashtag priority”.

Nozbe is integrated with Siri shortcuts, so you can easily create shortcuts to any task list. Just open the right panel (infobar, “i”) and use the “Add to Siri” button to record your custom phrase

Today widget

You can enable Nozbe Widget in iOS Today View. Just tap on Edit button and select Nozbe form the list of apps.

Access your Priority list data very quickly using Nozbe iOS widget. The widget shows only most recent tasks on the Priority list and is available online.

Within the widget you can:

  1. Open the add task window in your Inbox within the Nozbe app
  2. Open the task directly in the app
  3. Complete a task directly in the widget.
  4. Open a priority list within the Nozbe app

Icon Badge

You can enable icon badge on your iPhone. You can decide what the number on the badge icon represents. To use this option, go to Settings -> General and select one of the options available:

Quick Add

You can trigger Quick Add in Nozbe directly from a spotlight search. Just type “quick add” or “new task” in spotlight and tap on the Quick Add shortcut. Please note that this will only work if you have used Quick Add in the app at least once before.

You can also trigger Quick Add in the app by shaking your iPhone or iPad or by pressing ⌘^T on physical keyboard.

Apple Watch app

Get even more productive with Nozbe on your wrist. Take a look at Nozbe on Apple Watch:

Priority List

Nozbe on Apple Watch makes it easy to view your priorities without getting your phone out of the pocket. Just glance at your wrist to see your most important tasks and complete them on the go. You can check off your tasks while running errands, or between meetings, or in the subway.

Get notified

Your Apple Watch will notify you about:

Unlike notifications on your phone, these are rich and interactive. So you can see the comment in which you were mentioned or details of delegated tasks. And you can complete, delegate, comment or make them a priority — right from the notification.

Your day at a glance

See how you’re doing with Nozbe Complication

When you add Nozbe Complication to your watchface, all it takes is a quick peek at your wrist to get a sense of how productive you are today. The ring shows your progress (the more you get done, the closer it gets to completion), and the number inside — how many Priority tasks you have left.

Add to inbox

To add to-dos and notes to your Nozbe, press firmly on the priority list to dictate new tasks. You can add them to your inbox so you can deal with them later on your Mac or iPhone, or you can tap the star to make them a priority. You can even use hashtags to add a due date, a project name or other details (just say “#tomorrow #project”).

View tasks

Tap on priority tasks to see comments and more details. Press firmly to choose from 3 available options:

Keyboard assistant

Nozbe on iPhone has a new cool feature we call the keyboard assistant. When typing in new tasks, you’ll see three new buttons above the keyboard:

Share extension

Sharing from other apps in iOS is very easy thanks to Share extension support. Just tap Share button in-app options, select Nozbe and add a task. The item that you wish to share will be added as a comment to a task. Please note that adding a task via Share extension supports hashtags so you can easily set task parameters.

Task’s Options

When you open a task in your mobile app, you have several options available to you. Just tap on three dots displayed at the bottom to open the menu. There you can choose what to do with the task.

You can:

nozbe://x-callback-url schemes

Please bear in mind that this option is for advanced users. URL scheme is a special type of link that starts with nozbe:// and works just like normal https:// links you use every day. Instead of opening a webpage, it opens a specific view in the Nozbe app on iOS or macOS. Here is an example: nozbe://inbox - it opens Nozbe in the Inbox view. Below you will find technical documentation. If you want to learn how it can be used in practice read this blog post.

We implement x-callback-url protocol in our iOS and macOS apps. It is a useful method for creating workflows and shortcuts from other apps to Nozbe views and actions.

Nozbe URL Scheme actions look like this:

nozbe://x-callback-url/[action]?[action parameters]&[x-success parameter]
