Never miss another Teams meeting with Outlook reminders - Gosse explains

In the hectic workday, with back-to-back meetings and tight deadlines, it's not uncommon to lose track of a meeting here and there. Fortunately, there's a simple way to avoid this, ensuring that you're always aware of your next Teams meeting. In our "Gosse explains" series, we share a valuable tip on How to use Outlook to set reminders for your Teams meetings, so you never miss an important meeting again.

The Importance of Meeting Reminders

Setting reminders for meetings has several advantages:


  • Timeliness: Ensures you are on time for your meetings.
  • Organization: Helps manage your daily schedule and priorities.
  • Less stress: Reduces the stress of remembering every meeting moment.

How Do You Set Reminders?

  1. Schedule your Meeting in Teams: Create your meeting as usual and make sure it is synced with your Outlook calendar.
  2. Open Outlook: Go to your calendar where the Teams meeting is visible.
  3. Set a Reminder: Adjust the reminder time to your preference, whether it's 15 minutes, 30 minutes, or an hour before the meeting.

These steps ensure that you get a notification on your desktop or mobile device, giving you enough time to prepare and participate in the meeting.


Personalize Your Memories

Outlook offers the flexibility to personalize reminders to your work style and rhythm. Whether you prefer a reminder the night before or just a few minutes before you start, you have control over how and when you want to be notified.


One Step Further

In addition to setting reminders, we encourage you to take full advantage of Outlook and Teams' calendar features. Plan ahead, block out time for in-depth work, and make sure you have enough time between meetings to catch your breath.
