To enable Siri to add cash transactions through conversations, please follow the steps below.
*Please, make sure your OS version is 13.1.
*This feature is available on iPad (iOS 13) but not on Apple Watch.
① Tap "Shortcuts" app.
② Tap “Create Shortcut”.
③ Tap “+ Add Action”.
④ Tap “Apps”.
⑤ Select the Moneytree app and tap “Add Cash Spending”.
⑥ Tap on “Category” to change the category settings. You have two different options based on your preference.
- First option is to select a fixed category from the list.
- Second option is to select “Ask Each Time” at the very bottom of the page.
This is the new iOS 13 feature that allows you to flexibly choose the category everytime.
⑦ The default amount is currently set to “1”. You can modify this amount by tapping on the “1”. By doing so, you can add either a fixed amount or utilize the new iOS 13 feature and change it to “Ask Each Time”.
Tap “Next” on the top right corner to save the settings and move to the next step.
⑧ Choose a name that can be easily recognizable by Siri for the new shortcut. This is the name that will be used to invoke the Siri Shortcut.
Once you have inputted the name, tap “Done” to finish the configuration of the Siri Shortcut.
⑨ You are now set to use Siri Shortcut for Cash Tracking. Depending on the settings of your phone, activate Siri by holding down the home button. For iPhone X and later, you can activate Siri by using your voice or using side button.
Trigger the Siri Shortcut for Cash Tracking by telling Siri the name of the shortcut you would like to use. For example, in this case, tell Siri “Cash” and it should trigger a series of follow-up questions such as “What category would you like to select?” and “What was the amount of the transaction?”
