Need a simple/quick reminder function



  • 1. copy items from "Public Calendar" to "Personal Calendar"
    We implement an "Public Calendar" to share event information in the network. How can I allow an user to copy items from the "Public Calendar" to "Personal Calendar" without giving the "edit" permission to the users in Outlook 2002 ? I used to be able to do so with Outlook 97.
  • 2. Appointments show-up 1 hr too early
    I just imported my pst file from Outlook 2000 into Outlook 2002 (XP). All looks great except my appointments show-up an hour too early in my calendar. I confirmed that my clock and time zone are set correctly. Any other ideas?
  • 3. Outlook 2002 not Auto Accepting Meeting Requests.
    We have several mailboxes set up for different conference rooms and each has it's own calendar for meeting requests. Each mailbox is set up to "Auto Accept" meeting requests but that is not happening. Our organization is running MS Exchange 5.5 and all of our clients are running Office XP. In the interim, I have been manually accepting the meeting requests for each conference room mail box. Any suggestions as to what we can do?
  • 4. Outlook Crashing
    I have a user who's outlook crashes when ever she tries to accept meetings for certain people. Any idea's, she is using outlook 2000.
  • 5. Changing Reminder default to None
    No, Outlook 97 does not have that capability. -- Jocelyn Fiorello MVP - Outlook *** Replies sent to my e-mail address will probably not be answered -- please reply only to the newsgroup to preserve the message thread. *** "Scott" < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > wrote in message news:02e501c34707$1d12a450$ XXXX@XXXXX.COM ... > Is there a way to change the default setting for Reminder > to "no reminder"?

Please add a reminder function: easily available like creating a note, but 
that acts like a personal zero-duration appointment. It takes way too many 
keystrokes to do it manually using the appointment process. 

Ideally a hot key combination would bring up a window with clickable 
timeline, calander and text field, no clutter.  Provide a <Private> click 
box, but I should be able to set a default.

and if using outlook 2007, you have the calendar in the to-do bar. :)

Outlook is not an alarm clock. Another quick reminder method is flags - set 
a flag on any item. Assuming Outlook 2007, you can right click  on the flag 
field and choose Custom. Type a note in the Follow up field and set the date 
and reminder time.

While I'm not trying to disparage your suggestion, there are so many free 
reminder tools available for download from the Internet that I'd rather the 
Outlook team spend its time on more productive features.
