Using Automations

I’m looking for some help with Automations. I have about 20 automations set up on my phone, but I’m having some trouble and I hope someone here can help. I’m finding conflicting information on the web and the last Apple tech guy I spoke with ended the call apologizing for not knowing more about Shortcuts or Automations.

I run into problems using the Arrive/Leave functions. I’ve tried creating a Focus to go along with them, but I still don’t have luck getting them to run. My ultimate goal is when I arrive at a certain location, I want to:

  • Start a particular workout
  • Activate Raise on Wrist Raise
  • Turn volume up to 80%

I’ve tried entering the name for the venue (Red Rocks Amphitheater) and I’ve tried entering an actual address. I’ve even increased the radius to cover a wider area.

When this didn’t work, I created a Workout Focus that did these same things.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you.
