    So I have "Notify me when its time to go to work or go home" checked. First off, it has never asked me what my start and end times are. So that is probably 1/2 the reason this option never works for me (and yes, I have "work" set in places under Cortona). I'm a bit confused. How does this option work?

    I'm also wondering how that works. I believe over time it learns what time you leave places. I leave the house at 6am and its notified me at the right time...once so far. She also notifies me when to leave for my events when IT'S time to leave...which doesn't help much if I forgot about the event...she should notify me of traffic X amount of minutes before its time to leave.

    Yeah. The problem with my work schedule is it's the same each day, but I have to be at the main building at a specific time, only to head off to another. Sadly, Cortana only seems to learn work schedules if you stay at the one place the majority of the work day.

    I work midnights and I think that is throwing it off also.

    She will only notify you if you're running late or close to being late, based on traffic conditions and the time you always get to that "work" place.

    It doesn't use your "work" location designated in Cortona's settings under places? If not, that's ridiculous. So where does it get your work info from?

    From calendar, places, interests, reminders, gps and so on. Also, use "my commute" on HERE+. And give complete address (better repeat if on more then one app), city name etc. It works.

    Then I don't know what to say. Those locations under Cortana is from Bing Maps. As long as there there, she should work. Maybe a backend update is needed.

    Here maps isnt part of Cortana. Meaning, Cortana doesn't use any info from any Here services.

    It detects where you are for the majority of the week and sets it at work. It then shows up on the main dashboard till about 9-10ish if you dismiss the notification. And it reappears at the times you leave. It works. I've done it

    I work midnights...this may be the problem, and would be a big oversight.

    Has nothing to do with your scheduled time...I leave for work at 4:30 AM and Cortana reminds me every weekday that it's time to leave. I've been leaving at the end of the day at different times (ranging over a couple hours) so she's been a little off this week, but she usually tells me when it's time to leave as well. In addition, the live tile will sometimes tell me how long it takes to get home when I'm just out and about town.

    I was just about to ask the same question as I've had Cortana for 3 weeks and I she hasn't asked me where I live and work but I just opened her up she just asked so hopefully it starts working now.

    Cortona has a long way to go. I can ask Cortona for directions home a thousand times and all is fine. Then for three days , asking the same thing just gives me a Bing search for home. After a few days of that, back to normal.
