There's a quick way to schedule a recurring reminder in Outlook that doesn't block any time on your calendar. You can use the appointment scheduling feature in Outlook to create a zero-minute meeting that will serve as a reminder.

Create recurring reminders

  1. In Outlook, click Calendar.
  2. On the Actions menu, click New Recurring Appointment.
  3. In the Appointment Recurrence dialog box, under Appointment time, click a start time in the Start list, and then click the same time in the End list. Make sure that 0 minutes appears in the Duration list. Otherwise, Outlook blocks out time on your calendar.
  4. Under Recurrence pattern, click an interval, such as Daily or Weekly, and then select the options that you want.
  5. Under Range of recurrence, click a start date in the Start list, and then select a stop option.
  6. Click OK.
  7. In the Subject box of the Untitled - Appointment window, type a name for the reminder, and then click Save and Close.
