Handling Reminders



When a Reminder dialog box appears, you'll see the appointment name, its start time, and the date.


To dismiss the reminder (and turn off the alert), click the Dismiss button; the Reminder dialog box closes.


If you want to receive a second reminder, select a Snooze interval from the drop-down list at the bottom of the Reminder dialog box.


Click the Snooze button.


If you set a reminder for an appointment, Outlook displays a Reminder dialog box at the set time. When you see a Reminder dialog box, you have a few options for handling the reminder. Most often, you either dismiss the item or snooze the reminder.


Displaying the Appointment Window

If you need to, you can click the Open Item button in the Reminder dialog box to open the item's Appointment window. For example, you might do this to change the appointment time or reschedule it on another day.


Dismissing All Reminders

If you want to dismiss all reminders, click the Dismiss All button. You will be asked to confirm that you don't want to be reminded for any upcoming scheduled events; click Yes.
