Chapter 4. The Calendar > Setting Event Reminders

Setting Event Reminders

When you've set a reminder for an event or task, the Office Notifications window appears (Figure 4.19). You can deal with its reminder(s) in any of the following ways:

  • If there are multiple pending reminders, a vertical scroll bar appears on the right side of the Office Notifications window. Scroll to the item you wish to handle and then click the appropriate button.

  • If you don't want additional reminders for an item, click the Dismiss button.

  • To delay the reminder for another five minutes, click the Snooze button.

  • If you want to set a new time or day on which you'd like to be reminded again, click the down arrow beside the Snooze button. Then choose a new time or day from the list that appears (Figure 4.20).

    Figure 4.20. To be reminded at a later time, click the Snooze button and choose a new time.

  • If you want to change the reminder or modify the event for an item, click the Open Item button. Make the necessary changes, save the event, and close its window.

  • To dismiss the Office Notifications window without responding to the reminders, click its close button (the red button in the upper-left corner).

✓ Tips

  • Tasks can also have reminders. Both events and tasks are listed in the Office Notifications window. The handling methods described here for events are also used with tasks.

  • The number of pending reminders is displayed in the Office Notifications icon in the Dock (Figure 4.21).
