    In Outlook, I'm used to being able to set a reminder alarm on a To Do list item.... is there a way to do this on the Visor Prism as well? The only alarm info I can find is for the Date Book.

    Thanks in advance!

    No, you can't set a reminder for a To Do item. In Datebook+, you can use a Floating Event just like a To Do, complete with alarms. The nice thing about Floats is that they roll over to the next day if uncompleted.

    Check out this software called redo http://www.palmgear.com/software/sho...159&prodID=360

    I hope the above link works... if it does not then go to palmgear and search on "redo"

    This allows you to generate todo's that are then inserted in your calendar automatically at the right time... such as take out garbage every wednesday or submit report on 3rd thursday of month, etc.

    Also allows alarms by entering the characters "NLT 2200" into the todo which means "no later than 10pm)...

    Anyway you must read the manual (mabey even twice) as it is very detailed...

    Any one out there using this "redo"? Please comment...

    I'm not sure of this, but I'll doblecheck when I get to the office tomorrow: I think when you set up a To-Do in Outlook, and set a reminder, I believe the reminder works on your Visor when you sync. I recall seeing a slightly different reminder pop up on items that I didn't expect to see on the Visor.

    I'll try some tomorrow and see what I get.

    nope it doesn't sync todo reminders from outlook. you can set alarms on to do items in todo+ (a third party app which i use all the time-very good) but it still doesn't sync the ones from todo+ in the visor to the task reminders in outlook. best you can do with it is enter it in both or just in the one you know you'll be around when the alarm is to go off.

    a question, how does outlook treat/interperet floating events?

    Floats are treated as "all day" for untimed events, and as an "appointment" when timed (at least I think that's how it works )
