Siri Shortcuts gave me this idea.

Siri Shortcuts integration would allow users to obtain data such as: locations visited, distance traveled, date last visited (for specific place[s]), etc.

    I’ve only just today found my first use for Siri Shortcuts. My Dyson air purifier’s app has been updated, so that I can use voice commands with it.

    I’ve added “Set to work mode” and “Set to normal mode”, because when I’m at my desk working, I like to have the fan pointed at me directly.

    So… until now Siri Shortcuts have been meaningless, but now I have found one vaguely useful purpose for them. But I’m still not yet clearly imagining some uses for them for Arc.

    Do you have any specific voice commands in mind that you would want to make use of with Arc?

    Exposing data to Shortcuts could also potentially work as a solution for the “POST current location” feature request.

    Use it to tell Arc to record a new location (as discussed before)

    @Wim: I would rather have a manual way to trigger a new location within Arc before thinking about Siri shortcuts for this ;-)

    +1 for triggering a new location

    Ideas for shortcuts:

    Open arc and jump to specific date/time in arc‘s timeline (Would allow jumping into arc‘s corresponding timeline from the photo roll, for example)

    Create timeline note for specific timestamp Would allow predefined text/ or even /answer templates in shortcuts that could be written into arc.
