Using Reminders with Contacts

You can set Outlook to remind you to do tasks associated with your contacts. You can set a reminder to follow up, call, arrange a meeting, send an e-mail message, or send a letter. You can also set a due date for the follow-up task. In Contacts view, you can view the follow up flags associated with your contacts so you don't forget to respond. At the due time, or when you start Outlook on the due date (if there is no due time), a Reminder window opens in which you can dismiss the flag, open the Contact window, or click a Snooze button to be reminded again in five minutes. If you have not cleared a flag and the due time or date is passed, the date in the contact appears in red in the Contacts folder.

Set a Reminder for a Contact

In Contacts view, click a contact to select it, and then click the Follow Up button on the Standard toolbar.

Click the Flag To list arrow, and then click or enter the type of flag you want to add.

Click the first Due By list arrow, and then select a due date, if needed.

Click the second Due By list arrow, and then click a due time, if needed.

Click OK.

To see the reminder as text at the top of the contact, click the Address Cards option on the Navigation pane.

To see the reminder as a flag icon to the left of the Full Name field, click the Phone List option on the Navigation pane.
