Importing/Exporting with Outlook + MP3 reminders + Minutes

Post by eager to learn » Wed Jun 26, 2013 4:23 pm

Hi,

I have 3 questions:

1. Importing/Exporting - Outlook - What are the steps to export and import Outlook calendar info?

2. Reminders - Sounds - It seems I can only use .wav files as reminders, not MP3 files?

3. Reminder - Time Setting - If I choose to be reminded at 11:30AM on any day above that field is a field which shows 695 minutes - is that a calculation of time between the current time and then?

So, I don't need to do anything with that top field of 695 minutes?

Thank you!

See the documentation linked below:

Desktop alerts only support wav files. Popup reminders support any media type that can be played in Windows Media Player. That includes MP3 files. Please see the "Play Media" section in the documentation linked below:

Reminder - Time Setting - If I choose to be reminded at 11:30AM on any day above that field is a field which shows 695 minutes - is that a calculation of time between the current time and then?
There are two ways to enter how long in advance of an event's starting time you want to be reminded. You could enter a number of minutes, hours, days, or months before the event. The reminder date and time will be calculated based on the entered value. Likewise, you can enter an exact date and time. The offset from the event starting time will be calculated. In your case, that's 695 minutes. You only need to enter one value, using whatever method you prefer. The other value will be calculated.

Did I explain that clearly enough? Please let me know if it's still confusing.
