Outlook 97 Reminders

By mjervis ·
How can I turn on the reminders in Outlook 97. I have look into options and checked everything I can see but the little reminder bell doesn't show automatically in the calendar when the boss adds a task. he would like this to be automatic and not a manual task.

Look on the Other Tab of Tools>Options.
Click the Advanced Options button.
Now choose Reminder Options. I think that's the way it worked.

Been There Done That. As far as I can see the reminder option is all set and the sound even works however the reminders are not automatically coming up and they are not working at all.

Go to Options - Other - Advanced Options - Advanced Tasks - click on Set reminders on task with due dates. This will only set reminders for those tasks that have due dates - if you don't always have due dates it won't help you.

Also, if your boss sends the task to someone else, outlook automatically sets the reminder off so that the person who accepts the task can set a reminder. The only way around this (that I know of) is to write some VB code.

Something that I forgot from my earlier answer: you have to set a default reminder time in outlook.
