10.6. Office Notifications

After you've set up a reminder for an appointment or task in Entourage (or via the Flag for Follow Up feature in any Office 2004 program), Office 2004 will display handy onscreen alerts when your items come due. You can instruct these alerts to go away or to return later, or you can use them for quick access to appropriate appointments, documents, or messages.

Office 2004 uses a small add-on program called Office Notifications to perform the alerting. (It's in the Microsoft Office 2004 Office folder, if you're curious.) When an alert comes due, Office Notifications appears as a separate item in the Mac OS X Dock. When you've dealt with any pending items, Office Notifications vanishes, reappearing when it's time for the next reminder or follow-up.
