Windows 10: Unreliability of Cortana reminders

    Unreliability of Cortana reminders

    Has anyone else found Cortana's reminders to be unreliable?

    For no apparent reason reminders that I set don't ring. Also reminders that I've had set to ring daily and which DID ring daily for a long time all of a sudden stopped for no reason that I can see.

    Does anyone know why this may be happening? Could it be the updates doing it for some reason?

    Do your reminders still exist? I found that if I dismissed my reminders, sometimes it would dismiss and delete them.

    Most of my reminders work pretty well, especially now that I also use the Cortana app on my smart phone. I unfortunately have noticed that the reminders for meetings across town tell me about the meeting at the time of the meeting instead of using my location to provide enough time for me to get there. Thankfully, I didn't trust Cortana enough to do so in the first place, so I have not been late to meetings yet.

    I can see that at least some of them are still there. I can see multiple reminders that are supposed to be daily ones that are no longer appearing and are sitting in the list with a check mark next to them. What gives???
