Set email reminder in Calendar app

Question: Set email reminder in Calendar app

I cannot find any way to set an email reminder for an event in Windows 10 Calendar app. Using Calendar at Outlook.com this is an option. Is this by design or am I missing something?

How do I enable calendar reminders in WLM? Thanks.

Answer:WLM and calendar reminder

Open WLM and in the left-hand column open Calendar. Then, go to the upper-right hand corner and click on the Options link. Scroll down to the Calendar's setting options (see below) and follow the on-screen directions to set your reminder times.

By the way, there is an announcement that reminder alerts have been discontinued by Microsoft, so you might want to take a look at this link that is posted in the Reminders section: Change how you get reminders.

Question: Calendar/Reminder

Glad to see the forums up again. I was wondering what any of you guys use as an organizer/reminder type program. I want something that I can put stuff in on certain dates and it reminds me and also has a very easy to read layout. Like maybe it would show that month, and all of the entries I have are in bold or something.

What do you guys use?
 

Answer:Calendar/Reminder

I use Outlook for that actually. It gets the job done quite well. If you don't have office and don't want to pay for it, yahoo has that feature built into thier my.yahoo.com account. It's free and it gets you a custom homepage, email, etc.

However, I am not receiving any email reminders now and I'm not sure what's gone wrong.

On my iPhone I could set a reminder for an appointment on my calendar for the day before AND a second reminder, say the day of, an appointment. My Lumia 1020 only allows me to set one reminder. My friend's android phone allows for multiple reminders. What was Microsoft thinking and is there a work around for this issue?

You can set a reminder for the prev day and when it blows up, you can snooze it for a time period, including snooze by a day.

Hi,

What Calendar for Windows (XP) has a reminder that works even when the calendar is closed?

Maybe this is little unusual question, but I don't know where else to ask. I am using calendar app in windows 10, as a default calendar app on my desktop. when I put some reminder it does appear on windows, but NOT on my iPhone. I am using google calendar and google account for calendar, both on windows calendar and my iPhone. It happens also otherwise. If I put a reminder on my iPhone, it doesn't appear in calendar app on windows. So only reminder is a problem. Events appears both on windows and iPhone, and are synced ok. I guess it's a problem with windows calendar app, but don't know how to solve this. It causes me lots of unpleasant surprises. i missed few of my appointments, because reminder, which I set, didn't show on my iPhone.

Since using Kurlo, it has froze up twice while using it. I had a ton of information in it, and had to do it all over again in Kurlo. It froze up again. Does anyone know of a good "free" or "paid" calendar program, which also will remind me each day of what is happening in the near future? Thanks.

Help! I posted the following in the business software forum 2 months ago, and have had no replies. Surely there is someone out there with a possible solution!

My MS works reminder system has failed - it no longer pops up automatically to remind me of an entry on the calendar. I tried reinstalling Works, but this did not help.
It is possible this is related to a new computer, but I thought it was still working after the program was transferred to this computer.
I am using XP Pro (was XP Home on the old computer).
Someone suggested copying the shortcut to the start menu, but I am just computer illiterate enough that I couldn't figure that one out. Besides which, the program worked fine for a long time after the original installation.

I'm running Windows 10 on my new HP laptop and I can't get rid of the Microsoft Works Calendar Reminder. The laptop will suddenly slow down to a crawl, and when I go to Task Manager and look to see what's going on, I discover that the Microsoft Works Calendar Reminder is eating up half of my cpu, making the computer slow to a crawl. I can right-click it, then delete it, but it will just come back again, the next time I boot up the laptop.

I went to the uninstall settings and thought that I had uninstalled it, but it is obviously still lurking somewhere in the computer, even though it doesn't show, now, in the list of programs available to be uninstalled.

Is this some kind of worm/virus or just a really annoying, persistent Microsoft app?

Any ideas as to how I might get rid of it for good would be very much appreciated.

Answer:Can't Get Rid of Microsoft Works Calendar Reminder

Microsoft dropped Works and Works Suite a few years ago, or more. Since you say it's a new computer with Win10 how did you install Works? Works 9 [the last] is okay on Win10, at least on mine, but I installed Works after I got the computer. The previous computer that I relegated to a spare was upgraded to Win10 from Win7 which already had Works 9 on it. I haven't tried Works 8.5 or earlier on Win10, yet.

Ok, I'm in the correct forum now.

I recently downloaded malwarebytes anti-malware program. The instructions were good and it worked fine. But, now I can't access my calendar for reminders. I get a generic error message saying "Microsoft Works 8 has encountered a problem and must close."
It does not say what problem.
I am not using Microsoft Works 8, nor have I downloaded or installed it, ever.
I'm using Microsoft Works 2003 which came pre-installed on my computer when I bought it.
I never upgraded.
None of the items in the list of malware found said anything about microsoft calendar.
I've tried rolling back to a date before I used the anti-malware program but it had no effect.
My calendar data seems to be there, and it was backed up, the program just won't run.
The only other thing I use from M. works is a spreadsheet which still opens fine.

I can't find any way to make the calendar run.
I hope someone has some ideas.
Thanks.

Answer:How Do I disable WKcalrem(MS Calendar Reminder)

Create a permanent folder on your hard drive like c:\program files\hjt.
Download Hijackthis and save it to that folder.

Double click on Hijackthis.exe then click on the "Scan" button, then click on "Save Log".

Copy and paste it back here and someone will be happy to review it.

I made a daily reminder on Cortana ( I can't remember if I made it on phone or pc).
When I was finished with the reminder I completed it. However, it seems to be haunting me as it shows up on my calendar on my surface pro and I can't do anything with it. It's just there
It does not show up on my phone's calendar which is is strange because they are the same. If I try to click on the event on the day, it opens Cortana but there is nothing there. It's just blank and black with the delete option, save option and complete option (if I press the three dots) But there is no name to identify the reminder.
If I go in Cortana and click reminders. It does not show. If I check reminders history it does not show either
Hovering on the reminder in the calendar brings up "edit series and edit occurrence" . Both are uselss
I tried uninstalling the mail and calendar app and reinstalling but that also proved futile.
Any suggestions? It's pretty annoying seeing it there. One option is to deselect the reminders calendar on my surface but then I won't see any reminders at all.

I've seen this problem from time to time. Windows Calendar in Vista would not remind even when in the options I select "Reminders should show when Windows Calendar is not running".
The problem started when I changed my computer name.
Going into the "taskschd.msc" would give an error. It's because I changed my computer name.
The solution is to just put my name back the way I had it.

Hi,

It has been decided that my computer is free from malware, so I've been referred to this forum.

I recently downloaded malwarebytes anti-malware program. The instructions were good and it worked fine. But, now I can't access my calendar for reminders. I get a generic error message saying "Microsoft Works 8 has encountered a problem and must close."
It does not say what problem.

I have a Works 8 installation disk, but I think if I just reinstall Works, I'll lose all the notes on my calendar.

The only other thing I use from Works is a simple database which is working fine. Only the calendar reminder feature won't run. If I reinstall Works I could lose all the info on my database and I don't feel like re-entering over 1000 files.

I have the database backed up and it looks like I 'should' be able to run the backup file if the original gets wiped.
However, although I have backed up all the files in Works calendar folder, I don't know which one(s) hold the reminder info. I've tried replacing existing files with the backups, but they don't run so it looks like the problem is not with the calendar data files themselves, but something more basic to Works 8.

I recently found that if I right click on WksCal.exe and choose "Run as..." and use "administrator ", I get a different error message. This one simply says that Works could not find some needed files and suggests that they may have been moved or eras... Read more

Hi All,

When I realise that this has happened, I open the item in Outlook and find that the "Reminder" field has changed from "0 minutes" (which would give me a reminder at the time the event was set for) to "none" (which gives me no reminder at all).

Can anyone suggest why this might be happening, and how to cure it?

I would like an internet calender service that will send me unlimited reminder emails.

What happens: I will have a diary event...
I will set myself a reminder.
I will get the reminder: and I will still forget!

Much better: if I am allowed to set several reminders!

i.e. first reminder 3 days before the event, 2nd 2 days before, 3rd 1 day before and 4th 3 hours before.

This way: I won't forget!

I want the reminders sent by email.

At the moment, I use Yahoo calendar.
This does the job.
For any event you can set 2 reminders.
so what I do: create several events at the same time sending out different reminders.

Problem: creating more than one event os cumbersome and takes time.
Much better: be able to creat one event and add several reminders for that event.

Does anything like this exist out there...!!!

(Funnily enough... I have come accross something that does do this: sky.com. Not sure if you *have* to be a registered member though. And also: not sure of the reliability.)

My PC uses Windows XP and I am using Outlook 2007. In the Calendar Section, I have recently got a "Reminder" which wont be dismissed.

When I DO click Dismiss, I get a message: Cannot turn off the reminder. You may be reminded again. Cannot locate recurrence information for this appointment.

It was an entry to do some extra cover at work that I did for some time, but I deleted a while ago, but don't understand why if the calendar entry has been deleted that the reminder has not!?!

I also sync with an iPhone which of course mirrors the calendar and I suppose at some point the iPhone HAD the calendar entry when the PC did not, but after the sync it should have been deleted to match the PC.

Is there any way I can I get rid of this reminder?

In Outlook 2007 Calendar, the default reminder time is 15 minutes. That is, Outlook will remind you of each appointment 15 minutes in advance.

In Tools\Options..., I've tried to set the default reminder time to a shorter interval. But no matter what I set it to--10 minutes, 12 minutes, 5 minutes--Outlook keeps reminding me of each appointment 15 minutes in advance.

Hi,

I'm using Office 365 (desktop). When I create a meeting invite in Outlook Calendar and do it from scratch, e.g. in the ribbon I click "New Items", "Meeting", it works as it should. The meeting goes into my calendar and is emailed to the other person and they accept/reject. This is what I usually do to book a meeting.

This is something I started doing last week for efficiency (so I thought)-- When I am in an email message and click "Meeting" (in the ribbon) from the email (so that the email is linked to the meeting request), the meeting request is sent to the other person and they accept/reject, but I do NOTsee it in my calendar. I missed two calls yesterday because of this.

Am I using this feature incorrectly?

Thank you!!

In this database I need to add a counter or some form of counter that keeps track of how many days its been since the employer has been contacted.

So in one field we have a spot left for Date Contacted. So based off of the information in that Date Contacted, say I contacted an employer today, what I need is for that counter to basically automatically send someone an email when its reached a predetermined amount of days since that employer has been contact for arguments sake lets just say 5 days.

Function MailData(mSubject As String, mMessage As String, Sendto As String, Optional CCto As String)
Dim eSubject As String, Sendto As String, CCto As String, EBody As String
Dim app As Object, Itm As Variant
Set app = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set Itm = app.CreateItem(0)

With Itm
.Subject = mSubject
.To = Sendto
If Not IsMissing(CCto) Then .CC = CCto
.Body = mMessage
' .Attachments.Add (NewFileName1) ' Must be complete path
.Display ' This property is used when you want
' .send
End With
Set app = Nothing
Set Itm = Nothing
End Function


P.S. You forgot to mention the Excel versio you're using

I have a real simple need. Well, it's probably simple for some. I have a sheet built to track employee hire dates and eval dates. I would like to assign excel to open everyday at a time and then evaluate the cells with the eval and raise dates to see if an email needs to be sent to the supervisor. If so a simple "there are employee items coming due" email is sent to the supervisor. The super will go to the document and take care of the rest. Dta is not real. The email with the employee name isn't the one I'll be sending to. The Team Manager at the end is where the email will be going to for all on the sheet. I would appreciate the help. Running windows 7 and office 2013.

This is my first post here.

The script should preferably run automatically every time the PC is running when the excel file is open.

In the attached excel file, An email should go of to -email address (Col. F), with subject "number (Col. B) is due on Due date and time (Col. E)", and body "Dear Name(Col. F), please finish your project asap".

Also, the script should put a check mark on Reminder sent column (Col. G) after the mail is sent, the script should also check if the value of the cell is blank before sending email.

I have scoured the forum for similar problems, and although I found a number of of threads,I am not proficient enough in VBA to modify them to my needs.

Hi everyone,

I have no prior experience with Macro/VBA and would need help in creating an excel spreadsheet where an email reminder would be sent 60 days, 30 days and 7 days respectively if the project is not completed to the email stated in the 6th column with information from its row. If its completed, the checkbox would be checked and no mail will be sent.

The email should look like:

To: <email stated in that row>
Subject: Reminder to complete project within (e.g. 60 days)

Body:
Dear all,
Reminder to complete IN1661234 by 31st Aug 2016.

<personal email signature>

Do I need to create a button where I have to click in order for those reminders to be sent or will it be sent automatically everyday as long as the spreadsheet is opened?

Also, is it possible to create 3 different email template for each reminder days, such as 60 days prior to the deadline, the subject of the email would be First Reminder, 30days would have Second Reminder and 7 days prior would have FINAL REMINDER and a urgent marked on the email?

And how do I change the email where those reminders will be sent from?

Any help with regards to the above would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

I have attached a spreadsheet I will need to populate and we would like to send staff members an email reminder before they need to do their task. Maybe a day or the morning of the day is fine, as long as they get the reminder. I was just wondering how I would go about doing that?

As the Excel file would need to be opened in order to work , I was also wondering how I would be able to set it to open on the start up of everyones machine. Even if it can only start up the programme then it will be obvious to people what they need to open.

Could the email or subject include as much info as it can. Like name, company, job title and contact number. and for it to be sent to the Asignee.

We will then change the next contact date once completed.

Any help would be appreciated!

Yes this is very possible, how is your workbook laid out, in fact it would be better if you upload a copy REMOVING all sensitive information, or replacing that information with dummy data. Then we can have fun coding it.

I am extremely new to Windows 8 (like as of today) so I apologize in advance if I sound stupid in this.

I was handed over a work computer today that runs Windows 8, the previous employee set everything up using her personal email information (IE: the email from the main email envelope is her email, and the calendar feature would add details to her personal calendar not the one for work). She is not set up as a user on the computer at all, but her personal details are linked into the system.

I have searched the help documents everywhere and have gone through settings for the two applications trying to work out how to remove her personal information from the system and replace it with the work information. She doesn't need to see the new schedules or the times that our employees will be out on different jobs. My 3 hours of looking online this evening has brought me here for your help.

Is there a way for me to go in and remove her personal information and replace it with the information for the company? I could sit and question her ethic as an employee for hours as to why she would do it this way, but honestly if her ethic was great, I wouldn't be taking this over at this point. I just need to ensure that the computer is set up for the business not for someone's personal email and calendar and ensure she isn't getting notifications of our future work schedules.

Answer:Changing email/sync information for Email and Calendar

Just my2cents (no pun intended) but I wouldn't touch anyone's personal information on a computer that was handed over to me by an authorized representative of a company for the sole purpose of conducting business. IMHO, that computer should have been reinitialized by your IT department and all previous personal information should have bee removed. If I were you, I would take it right back to the person that gave it to you and tell them it contains personal information from a previous employee and let them deal with it.

My question is now if it is possible to have it send 2 weeks in advance, and then again in 1 week later.

Hi lovely people!

I hope you can help me out - I'm new to macros. In regards to the attached excel file, I need to achieve 3 main goals:
Automated pop-up message - For each phone that is overdue for delivery (ie current date is more than due date), I need a pop-up message upon opening the excel sheet. The pop-up alert should say which phone is due (stock #), and how many days overdue it is (current date minus due date)
Automated email reminders - emails to send to various email accounts (individuals in my team) to remind them of overdue phones. The email should include details like the phone, stock #, supplier, due date and how many days overdue. I want the first email reminder to be sent on the due date itself, then 2nd reminder on the next day, and subsequent reminders every 3 days.
Have a separate sheet listing all the overdue items that need to be followed-up.

Lastly, but is it at all possible to create two versions of the same stock list? I.e. one sheet in English, and the other sheet in French. And any edits in either sheet will update the other version.

Cheers!

Answer:Excel 2007 Macro to Send Reminder Email

desantisj, welcome to the Forum.
There are already 3 or 4 posts on this forum that have the VBA code (Macro) that you can modify for your Workbook if you can read the code. Zack has written the code so it is a bit complicated, but it should be a case of substituting your Cell references that hold the data for the ones that others have used.
Otherwise it is a case of waiting for an Excel guru to come along and help. If none of them come along I can probably help you, but I normally work with Access.

This is from Microsoft Help-

These steps allow you to create a task for yourself. If you want to e-mail a task to someone else, use Microsoft Outlook rather than Microsoft Excel. For more information, see Outlook Help.

Open the workbook for which you want to add the task.

On the Reviewing toolbar (toolbar: A bar with buttons and options that you use to carry out commands. To display a toolbar, click Customize on the Tools menu, and then click the Toolbars tab.), click Create Microsoft Outlook Task .

On the Task tab, enter the subject, dates, status, priority, and reminder for the task.

For more information about task options, see Outlook Help.

Note Once you create the task, you can open it in Outlook. For more information, see Outlook Help.

I used Outlook 2000 on my last XP computer but Outlook 2000 does not work on Windows 7. While I've found a number of email clients that do the email job credibly, I can't find an email client program with a calendar that has reminders like Outlook. That is, I want something to pop up on my screen to remind me I have a dentist appointment in one hour, or I have to go someplace tomorrow, or I have a deadline coming up in three days.

I prefer something that resides locally on my machine. The calendar in Windows Live Mail is nice, but no reminder function. I think if I go online and register with Windows Live, they may have some sort of option where they send you an email reminding you of appointments, but that doesn't sound like the reminders function of Outlook. Besides, Microsoft knows enough about me already, I don't want them tracking my appointments.

Does anyone know of a resident email client with a calendar containing a reminder (alarm) function?

Thanks!

Answer:Looking for email client w/calendar w/REMINDERS

I personally do not know any free ones...

I know Office 2007 in Outlook as this function.. and Office 2003...Which are able to run under Windows 7..

So, for various reasons I need to restore a full outlook profile including emails, contacts and calendar. The target PC has a new installation of Windows 7 RC-1, the source of the data is a full copy of an old Vista installation which had the Outlook profile as part of an Office 2003 install. I believe Outlook stores the whole lot as a .pst file - do I just need to locate that and copy it across? IS it that simple? I'd like to also restore the email / user account settings and all the email folders from the old Outlook profile.

Thanks!
 

Answer:Restoring outlook email, contacts and calendar

All you need is the pst file, but you will still need to enter in the settings on the new profile. Once it is configured and set up, you can import the old PST file to populate the folders, contacts, etc.

I am an Outlook 2010 Windows user who syncs my iCloud (desktop) calendar with my iphone and iPad as well as my Outlook 2010 program. Outlook 2010 is getting old.

So, I would like to switch to using Mozilla Thunderbird for desktop email and its Lightning Calendar instead, but I don't see a way to get my iCloud calendar to work easily with Lightning. I like the idea of switching because Thunderbird and Lightning are free, while updating my Outlook 2010 would cost money.

Is there an easy way to get this to work? I know Lighting can work with Google Calendar, but I am a Yahoo! not a Gmail user.

I'm also open to ther solutions...

I have a user on Office 2007. Most of her Calendar appointments open normally. Just recently, when she opens certain appointments, it opens as a New E-mail as opposed to just opening the appointment. It is a blank New E-mail without any of the appointments details.
I have searched Help and forums but I haven't found this problem repeated.
 

Answer:2007 Calendar Appointment opens as email.

Are these appointments entries she created herself, or that were created via a meeting request?

I did a windows 8 refresh and now I have lost my emails, email folders, contacts, and calendar from outlook 2013. Can I get these back? It says refresh keeps personal files, does this include old emails, contacts, etc., etc.?

Thanks,
Sean

I created outlook client account (2010) on user's computer, and outlook calendar and contacts is not syncing with O365 account. People and Calendar in O365 are there, just not in Outlook 2010 on user's computer. Email is syncronizing. Anyone know what I can check? I compared the Outlook 2010 account settings with other users, so they should be correct. After setting up the Outlook account on the computer, the "Test Connection" does work. However, when you go into Control Panel, Mail, Account Settings, Repair, get message "An encrypted connection to your mail server is not available. Click Next to attempt using an unencrypted connection." If anyone has any ideas what I can check or do to resolve this issue, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Answer:O365 calendar and contacts not syncing, email does

I figured it out myself. When you MANUALLY configure an Outlook Client account to Office 365 with POP3, SMTP, and server settings, even though it connects to your Office 365 email, Contacts and Calendar will not sync, that's just the way it works.

Looking for a solution to carry out a simple process (in principle, anyway);
Taking any particular day on the calendar app and 'lifting' the detail into the email app, either directly into an email to send, or to copy/paste in some way into an email. It would need to be all of the 'detail' in the title of the appointment, and not necessarily the detail in the appointments (although that would be nice). Something like;
Thurs 16 Oct 2014:
1.00 - 2.00 Lunch with Fred
2.30 - 3.00 First review meeting: Mr B, 8 Somewhere St, London, England, +207 444 666
2.30 - 3.00 Second review meeting: Mrs C, Old Rectory, London, England, +207 444 777
6.00 - 7.00 Dinner at Chez Vous

I appreciate that this can be done through Outlook but having purchased a Lenovo tablet with full windows 8.1, I didn't want to incur the same cost again in purchasing Outlook 2013 just for this seemingly straightforward task.
I'm really just looking to take a snap-shot of my calendar and drop it into an email.
There may be better calendar apps out there than the windows 8.1 calendar app that can do this and I'm not averse to using something else. It's the how to lift detail into an email that I'm struggling with.
Any help, advice, alternative solutions, would be hugely appreciated.
Thank you!

Answer:How to integrate Win8.1 Calendar and Email or alternatives

You may want to check out Thunderbird, It always had a Calender module, though I'm not sure how much native integration it has with Windows 8 I't always been pretty flexible - and it's totally free of course

I've been living in Thailand for a few months. A few weeks ago google calendar started translating my calendar into Thai. Not good since I don't speak Thai. I have no idea why this is happening. I didn't change any config settings to do this translation and can't find any to stop it. That's bad enough, but in the last few days Thai translations have been creeping into my email. No luck with google help and no way to talk to or email google tech support as far as I can tell.

By the way there is a google translation function I tried to use to translate the Thai back into English (not a good solution), but that only translates a small part of the calendar back to english and doesn't help with my email.

Hi,
I have just signed up to this forum and am totally IT inept.
I am trying to set up a sort of manager / assistant sharing of an inbox and caledar through outlook. However we both only have office 365 individual licence and we dont seem to be able to share in the normal way.
We need to both be able to work from an inbox (which my boss wants to set up using an individual domain name) and the same calendar.
I have been going round and round in circles with this to no avail. Please help.
Thank you.

Answer:sharing outlook email and calendar office 365 individual

Are using Office 365 for a Business where other users are able to share calendars, etc? It sounds like your saying that you currently only have the Office software license, and not the Online Account portion of the package. Can you clarify? In terms of what I use, GoDaddy sells 3 basic packages. The Online Essentials (just the email account), the Business Premium (Office and the email account), and on a separate page, Office 365 Software (just the software).
 
You mentioned "an individual domain name". Do you mean that you and another person will be sharing a single mailbox and calendar like "[email protected]"? Does your boss want you two to use a different domain name than the rest of the company?
 
If the company doesnt currently subscribe to Office 365's Business Email service, then that's where you will want to start. Wherever your domain name is currently living (where you bought it) is where you should start inquiring about purchasing this service. Once you've setup your new email account, you can another person can both have it setup and can both use it, add and delete from the calendar, check and reply to messages, etc.
