    Hi Talderon
    Following is my suggestion about quiet hours.

    I have attached a photo of current quiet hours on my phone. Its set from 11pm to 6am everyday.
    http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/04/26/he2e3a6a.png


    My suggestion is to have different time frames for each day.
    Example:
    I might want to have quiet hours from 11pm to 6am on weekdays and 11pm to 9am on weekends.

    So must have option to set for individual day of the week or by day range.

    I would also want Cortana not to entirely depend on internet, to have its own dedicated memory (RAM) which it uses if i am offline.

    This is on the roadmap, but not sure if it is just a mile up the road (next release) or a few miles up. I'll update this OP when I have news. :)

    Talderon, first of all, you are awesome for responding to everyone so quickly! So thank you so much!

    I have two more questions that I think you can probably answer -

    If you delete your favorite places, clear Cortana local data, and clear all the personalization from Bing - and then disable Cortana on the phone, and then re-enable - does this COMPLETELY reset it?

    E.g. would it start over trying to detect home/work for those for whom it hasn't triggered yet?

    Or does it still retain some data even when you do this?

    My second question (and possibly less answerable) is whether you can tell us if adding more customization/transparency to commuting/traffic is on the roadmap or not - e.g. manually putting commute information, enabling Cortana to always show traffic to favorite places etc. While the auto setup features are great for those who are maybe less techy, the ability to manually configure it would be really useful.

    When you go through those steps to clear Cortana, then yes, she is essentially reset. Just keep in mind, that at this time, she will not re-ask you the Getting to Know You questions like she did (or should have) the first time.

    As for the road map, a LOT of reprioritization has been done based on the feedback here. Some features re never thought of were added due to the feedback here as well as new functionality.

    Good stuff really. :D

    All the answers to the question are saved under interests.
    From the Cortana screen, select the hamburger button and then select interests. On the interest screen, you can add or delete your preferences. Below are the screen shots:

    This! Cortana cant just learn at the USA, Europe needs Cortana too, people wont wait another decade to decide to buy a WP, you have to really convince them.
    I have to agree whole heartily, it definitely needs to learn some EU or Uk speak, i WAS using Cortana in the Uk until my local premiership football ( Soccer ) team drew o-o last week, Cortana delivered the result as a " Tie 0,all " just like that .. it was soooo typically American !! i appreciate Cortana is designed presently for the US but until it is released in Beta to the rest of the world how is it going to learn in a time frame that is acceptable, as stated by VictorGR " People wont wait another decade"

    A decade? That's being a little dramatic. Remember, it's not even available technically in the US yet!

    99% of the folks here won't see it for at least another 4-8 weeks...

    I whole-heartedly hope that Cortana will be available for Asian countries, too. Although I changed my region to US just for Cortana, and to be honest I am enjoying many of her functions very much, I still haven't had the chance to see some other awesome functions that the US is enjoying, like the "find libraries nearby" or "how's the traffic on my way to work" or the most important of all, her suggesting when i should be leaving for work based on my means of transportation, traffic, allotted time functions...

    I would really love to see media integration the way it is on Xbox One, and I imagine this will eventually come.

    E.g. You say "Scott Pilgrim" and it recognizes that its a movie and shows you that it is available on Netflix, Hulu and Xbox and you can tap the result to directly load the movie in the app.

    Even if the app isn't on Windows Phone it would be great to be able to search for a movie and find all your options to watch it.

    This would be great if extended to music, books and apps as well. If you search for Ryse it tells you it's available for Xbox One. That a book is on Kindle (with a click to buy it etc.)

    Hey Talderon! First off, thanks for this thread!

    Is it currently/will it be possible to do location based commands? I usually call/text my wife on the way home from work. I'd love it if Cortana would initiate (with my permission) a text/call with my wife when I leave work. Here's how I envision it working:

    I've got Cortana set up with my work/home etc. and she knows who my wife is. I've told her: Please call my wife when I leave work after 5pm (in case I need to go somewhere during the day and don't need to call at that time, but I almost always call or text my wife on the way home from work; this would be even better if I could set this to repeat Monday-Friday). With that all done, I leave work and get to my car. Once there, Cortana pops up and says, "I see you've left work, would you like me to call your wife?"

    That right there, would be absolutely tremendous. I don't know if that is currently possible, or if it's something you are working on, but I would love to see this implemented in the near future.

    Quick additional question: How long does it take Cortana to learn places? I was too impatient and set them manually.

    My sincere thanks!

    Hey Talderon, I know you are a busy person. Any chance you could address this earlier post of mine? Or did you already and I missed it?

    Talderon, this thread is an incredible service to the Community. Thank you. And thank your Team for letting you do this!

    I can't seem to get Cortana to place my appointments and reminders on my Exchange calendar, she only does Outlook (which, FYI is STILL called "Hotmail" in much of WP 8.1). Is the Team working on fixing this? It makes her scheduling capabilities, particularly for meetings in a corporate or work environment. Can we look forward to having Cortana create meetings on our Exchange calendars?

    Thanks in advance

    I have one question only, will there ever be Swedish support in Cortana? Don't care if it's in English, but I at least want to be able to use her, and be able to purchase apps without requiring two reboots (US -> Swedish -> US)

    The ability to manually kick this off will be in Update 1. (no ETA at this time)

    College sports too...
    Please see post: http://forums.windowscentral.com/cor...g-updated.html This is where I am putting updates and news as it is released to me for posting.

    On this topic though, there are some difficulties. One of the main difficulties we face is the centralization of information feeds. With major sports and college sports, there are a couple reliable feeds we can use to parse this data. For other sports, that don't have a centralized system, it would mean pulling information from many sources. The strategy is still being worked on so I will update my thread above with details.

    I hope one of these features is "Bringing Cortana to other countries ASAP!!"

    No, Wi-Fi GeoFencing is not on the roadmap in the sense that GPS GeoFencing is, there there is something being cooked up, no details yet.

    This is coming, but that has to do more with the Xbox team that develops the app to hook into Cortana. I don't have any visibility in that area.

    Hey Talderon, I know you are a busy person. Any chance you could address this earlier post of mine? Or did you already and I missed it?
    Right now, you can only do reminders "Remind me to call my wife when I leave work" and you will get it. Auto-Dial like that can be tricky and I don't see it happening anytime soon, if every. That does not mean a 3rd party developer can't give it a go!

    Talderon, this thread is an incredible service to the Community. Thank you. And thank your Team for letting you do this!

    I can't seem to get Fortuna to place my appointments and reminders on my Exchange calendar, she only does Outlook (which, FYI is STILL called "Hotmail" in much of WP 8.1).

    I am pretty sure this works, however, I will play around with it today and if I find any issues, I will report it up the chain. :)

    Great thread. Has there been any discussion about bringing Cortana to the Surface 2?
    Just for the record, Cortana will be coming to ALL Windows 8 powered devices (I am sure it will require Windows 8.1+, but nothing certain yet, I just started testing it and there are some hurdles we have to overcome, but that is all I can say). Oh, will be coming to Xbox One as well, Sorry 360 folks.

    This information is publically available.

    Hope that helps all!
