              • Cortana will only use Google calendar

                Cortana will only use Google calendar for events and meetings. There is no way to get it to use Outlook calendar. None of my outlook scheduled meetings or events can be seen on the Cortana home screen.

                      • Two alerts for each cortana reminder, both have different ui and one plays tune continually until silenced.

                        I get two alerts for each cortana reminder. One of them is a more classic ui, which uses the entire screen and a short alert which repeats one or twice. But more often than not, I get a second alert which overlays the other screen and appears more like a pop up dialog. This one sounds more like a music box and it will not stop playing that sound until you actually press the confirm button.

                        I cannot figure out how to stop it and it's incredibly annoying. This problem started for me about one to two months ago.

                                  I don't see why I have to separately install cortana to get notifications sync to my PC, the launch already have cortana built in.

                                      ich habe mir erst neulich den Launcher heruntergeladen, aber ich kann Cortana durch die Gesten nicht starten, es passiert nichts. Brauche ich dafür Office 365?

                                      • 小娜提醒截止日期会自己改变,最后就没有提醒。

                                        设置第二天或者之后的提醒后,截止日期过一会会自动变为建立日期的那天,和建立的提醒日期不一致且提前于提醒日期,然后就是不提醒了。希望改进,毕竟这个问题已经很久很久了
