Chapter 7. Managing Your Calendar > Working with Reminders

Working with Reminders

With all the meetings, appointments, and events crowding your busy schedule, you probably want Outlook to remind you before these activities are scheduled to occur. By default, Outlook reminds you 10 minutes before a scheduled activity. You can change this reminder interval, and even select the sound that Outlook plays to notify you that something important is about to take place. Once you set a reminder, an alarm icon appears next to the activity in the Appointment area. If you set a reminder for 15 minutes before an appointment, for example, Outlook plays an alarm and opens the Reminder dialog box 15 minutes before the scheduled appointment time. Outlook must be running for the Reminder dialog box to appear. If you're using a different program, but Outlook is running, the Reminder box appears on top of any open windows or documents. In the Reminder dialog box, you can choose to Open The Item, click the Snooze button, or Dismiss the appointment.
