Using Appointment Reminders
Outlook can remind you of an appointment by displaying a dialog box and playing a sound. You
can specify how much advance notice you get and also change the sound that is played. You can
also turn reminders off. To set a reminder:
Create the appointment, or open an existing one for editing.
Click the Reminder list on the Appointment ribbon (see Figure 11.12).
Select the desired duration of the advance warning, from 0 minutes to 2 weeks. The
default is 15 minutes before the start time, although you can change this in Calendar

This Sound option if you do not want a sound played (a dialog box is displayed).
Click OK to return to the appointment form.
