Outlook 2003 and previous showed a bell icon on appointments that had a reminder set to it. This bell icon was (sadly) removed in Outlook 2007. I was happy to hear that the bell icon is back again in Outlook 2010 and later
Now I just upgraded to Outlook 2016 and I still don't have the bell icon for my appointments that have reminders set to it.
Is the bell icon really back and if so; How can I make it visible?
Yes, the bell icon is really back! It is disabled by default though but enabling the option is easy enough once you know where it is ;-)
- Open the Options dialog via; File-> Options
- Select the Calendar section on the left.
- In the Calendar Options section you’ll find the option;
Show bell icon on the calendar for appointment and meetings with reminders
The bell icon is back!
