How to show reminder icon for calendar items in Outlook?

Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2014-09-24

In Outlook, if you have added reminder for an appointment or meeting before, you may forget whether the appointment/meeting has a reminder or not unless you open it (or move mouse over it in Outlook 2013). Actually, Microsoft Outlook supports showing reminder icon  for all calendar items (appointments, meetings, and all day events) with reminders easily.

Step 3: Go on to check the option of Show bell icon on the calendar for appointments and meetings with reminder in the Calendar Options section, and click the OK button.

After enabling the reminder icon  in the Outlook Options dialog box, you can see the reminder icons in these places:

In Outlook 2010, you can get the reminder icons  behind appointments/meetings with reminders in the To-Do Bar.
