    Hello,

    I set up a 'work' location with Cortana.

    I then set a reminder to call a client when I was at work.

    The reminder showed up, but I was not at work, I was at home...

    Anyone else have any experience with location based reminders?

    Thanks,

    Mr. V

    So far when i set my location "home" and give her a reminder based on location at home, she remind me correctly. Also when i set location based reminder when travel to somewhere she perform good. Please check back your "work" address. Maybe Cortana wrongly save the address.

    I saved a place to check out if I was nearby during the holiday season. Couple weeks ago, I drove by and the reminder popped up! Totally forgot about it and cool that it worked.

    I have my home and work addresses entered, but location-based reminders don't work for me. In fact, I just arrived at work, and within twenty minutes, got several home-based reminders that were supposed to go off when I got home... two days ago.

    Time-based reminders are a little bit better. Very disappointed in the location ones though. (And yes, I've gone through the usual steps of making sure reminders are turned on, my locations are favorited and correct, location services are on, etc.)

    Using: HTC One m8.

    Locations for our maps are definitely off but mine usually work as some may not be the exact address. There was a discussion about this. Maybe turn Cortana off and then back on.

    They have occasionally worked for me.

    Works:
    I have "convenience store" saved as a location. I ask her to remind me to pick up milk when I'm nearby, and it has worked.

    Does not work:
    I was on a train to Scotland and wanted to be notified when I crossed the "border". I marked a spot on the map and saved it as "Scotland". Asked her to remind me when I reached that point.

    I got the notification 3 days later....

    My location based reminders have never failed me. 1520.3, US, T-Mo and Straight Talk (ATT), always "Official" first Cyan then Denim.

    Home, Grocery Store, In-Laws, Doctor's Office, various temp locations stored.

    Exactly the same for me using both my old Ativ S and current 930. I use location based reminder on a daily basis. Frequently use "hey Cortana" to set these.

    LOVE that; "Hey Cortana... Remind me to get milk at the grocery store."

    It is a thing of beauty isn't it?
