Outlook settings itself can be really cumbersome, but couple that with a particular feature and you prefer to stay in the dark. We’ve been trying to grab a better hold on slippery Outlook settings that never fail to baffle Outlook users. Here are a couple more ‘slippery’ settings, so watch your step!
While the Outlook Calendar is a remarkable feature, its Outlook settings are quite a put off. Since it’s a highly integrated feature, there might be a lot of issues that could give you a bad day. However, if you get familiar with them, you can start kicking your Outlook settings around.
Outlook settings: Calendar Reminders
This is one feature I use heavily. I’m really disorganized and absent-minded. Outlook’s been a great help getting my act together. What would I do without my daily schedule and Outlook reminders? But when my Outlook reminders started acting up, I had to really get around them. To do this I had to first figure my way around these Outlook settings. Ok, two likely possibilities here. Your reminders maybe disabled or you face the possibility of a file corruption. To get your reminders doing their job, check on the status of these reminders. Enable them if they are disabled or fix up corrupt entries.
It can be really frustrating when you try to enter a new Calendar event or view an existing entry, but all you get is an error message. Thankfully, Outlook’s included Outlook settings to help you with corrupted Calendar entries. This is a real relief. Imagine you’re scheduling conference dates, after confirming numbers and dates, you keep tripping up on the Calendar entries – you just can’t enter or create an event. You’ve got a corruption on hand. A corrupted entry causes problems for other users, especially if you share and sync your Calendar‘s Outlook settings. To get your Calendar to being helpful again try the following:
- Completely shut down Outlook and its processes.
- Get to ‘Run’ in your Start menu and in the textbox type ‘outlook /clean reminders’. Hit OK
There you go, you’ve worked your way around these crazy Calendar Outlook settings. Way to troubleshoot these Outlook problems!
