One of the things you can set on Tasks is Reminders. You can also set Reminders on e- mails and on Calendar items as well. Notice this e-mail in my Inbox has a little bell beside it; it has a Reminder set, and in my list of Tasks in my To -Do Bar, some have Reminders set and some don't. I don't have one set on Order Pizza here. So if I want to set one, I'll just right -click on my flag, and I'll be able to add a Reminder this way. I'm going to cancel this for now. Of course you can also do this when you're in the Task list.
So I need to remember to Order Pizza for dinner. I can right-click and choose to add a Reminder that way, or I can just Double click and open the item up, and set a Reminder here in the details. And Save & Close. What happens when a Reminder comes due? Well, something will pop up like this. It will tell you the Subject or the name of the item that has a reminder set on it, when it's due. In this case to have one for Organizing my E-mail that's five hours overdue, now I can choose to Dismiss these.
I can Dismiss them All. I can Open the items or I can Snooze them. I'll need to Snooze them one by one. But for example this Organize E-mail, I just want to Snooze that for half a day. I just decided I'm not to give time to it, so I'm going to click Snooze, and that one's now been Snoozed and it's off my list. My Project Meeting is two hours overdue. So if I was see what that was, I'm just realizing that maybe I missed a meeting, I can Double click on that to open up that item, or, I could simply select it and click Open Item to do the same thing.
Now in nine minutes I'm supposed to Begin a Proposal. That's a Calendar item, and I can tell by the icon beside it looks like a calendar. I can Double click to open up that Calendar item or Appointment in this case. To work on my new project, complete the first draft. If I want to, I can Snooze that to remind me closer to the start of it, right at the start, or I can simply dismiss it. Once you dismiss a Reminder, you will not be reminded again, so be very careful with doing Dismiss All, if there's multiple Reminders that have popped up.
