How to show reminder icon for calendar items in Outlook?

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.
