Windows 7, Outlook 2010 question. I checked the box to set the reminder time for my tasks. The date and time get populated, but the reminder box remains unchecked. How do I get the reminder to be set on automatically?

I'm not the pro on this, but it sounds to me like you might have reminders disabled. Try to enable reminders, then check the box and see if that works. If not let us know and we'll do a little digging!

At first, the reminder and the date and time did not get set. I turned reminders on and then the date and time got populated, but the reminder was not set. I still have to open up each task and srt the reminder. That is I went to options, tasks and then set on the reminder box.

I discovered that I ned to set a due date first and then it autonmatically sets the reminder on. Thanks.
