Office 365 (Apple Reminders 10.9) - Delete a reminder

Best Effort Support Only

This document contains instructions on using a non-Microsoft email client, such as Apple Mail or Thunderbird. Microsoft does not recommend these clients for use with Office 365, and there are often significant limitations in client functionality as a result.

Because of this, the DoIT Help Desk is only able to offer best effort support for these clients, and certain issues may require the use of a Microsoft client in order to be resolved. For more information on Office 365 client support, please see: Office 365 - Which clients/protocols will be supported?.

This document explains how to delete a reminder in Apple Reminders for OS X 10.9.

  1. Open Apple Reminders by opening the Applications folder on the dock and selecting Reminders.

  3. With the desired account selected in the left-hand column, simply click and highlight the desired reminder/task in the right-hand column and hit the delete or backspace key on your keyboard. The reminder/task is now deleted.

  4. To delete a reminder/task that has been completed, click on the Completed list at the top of the left-hand column in the Reminders window.
