How to Change the Date on an Outlook 2013 Message Reminder

Procrastination used to be an art; Outlook 2013makes it a science. When someone nags you with a reminder, you can still put it off. To change the date on a reminder that someone sent you, follow these steps:

1

Click the Mail button in the Navigation bar (or press Ctrl+Shift+I).

The Inbox screen opens, showing your incoming mail.

2

Click the message that has a reminder you want to change.

The message appears highlighted to show that you've selected it.

You can right-click the message's flag icon to open the Custom dialog box or can you can access the Custom dialog box as described in the next step.

3

Select the Home tab, choose Follow Up in the Ribbon, and then click Add Reminder (or press Ctrl+Shift+G).

The Custom dialog box appears.

4

Select the Reminder check box and select the new date when you want the reminder flag to appear.

If the check box is already selected, don't click it; doing so would deselect it. Enter the date and time when you think you'll feel ready to be flagged again. Typing 999 years from now will work — really!

5

Click OK.

You can always put something off if you really try. When a flag reminder pops up, click the Snooze button to put it off for a while, just as you do with your alarm clock.
