Reminder object (Outlook)
Represents an Outlook reminder.
Reminders allow users to keep track of upcoming appointments by scheduling a pop-up dialog box to appear at a given time. In addition to appointments, reminders can occur for tasks, contacts and email messages.
Use Reminders (index), where index is the name or index number of the reminder, to return a single Reminder object.
Use the Reminders collection's Remove method to remove a Reminder object from the collection. Once a reminder is removed from its associated item, the AppointmentItem object's ReminderSet property is set to False.
The following example displays the caption of the first reminder in the collection.
Sub ViewReminderInfo() 'Displays information about first reminder in collection Dim colReminders As Outlook.Reminders Dim objRem As Reminder Set colReminders = Application.Reminders 'If there are reminders, display message If colReminders.Count <> 0 Then Set objRem = colReminders.Item(1) MsgBox "The caption of the first reminder in the collection is: " & _ objRem.Caption Else MsgBox "There are no reminders in the collection." End If End Sub
The following example creates a new appointment item and sets the ReminderSet property to True, adding a new Reminder object to the Reminders collection.
Sub AddAppt() 'Adds a new appointment and reminder to the reminders collection Dim objApt As AppointmentItem Set objApt = Application.CreateItem(olAppointmentItem) objApt.ReminderSet = True objApt.Subject = "Tuesday's meeting" objApt.Save End Sub
