At work in the corporate world most of us use Outlook to manage our calendar and tasks. The thing is that filling out each new task and setting up reminders for them becomes really repetitive really quickly. If you find yourself creating a lot of tasks that require reminders, this groovy guide can shave some time off of the creation process.
By default, the Reminder box is not checked when creating a Task in Outlook 2010, also in both the date and time boxes you will see a greyed out “None” rather than a time. We’re going to fix that and assign a default time.
In Outlook 2010, Click the File ribbon and Select Options.
Click the Tasks tab and Check the box labeled Set reminders on tasks with due dates.
While you are here you can also change the default reminder time that will show up when creating tasks. By default it is set to 8:00 AM.
Now when you create Tasks in Outlook 2010 the Reminder will automatically be checked and set for the default time from Step 2. This will help you remember to set reminders for your tasks, but it can also just be useful as a daily reminder if you set it for the time that your work day usually starts.
