I'm having an issue in which I cannot create reminders in Outlook 2013 with windows 7 Pro. I have iCloud version 3.1. I try to create a reminder for an iCloud calendar item in outlook and receive the message " The reminder for "event" will not appear because the item is in a folder that doesn't support reminders. Is this OK?

I have run Outlook as an administrator to enable to iCloud add-in. It did allow me to move the add-in from disabled. It is not listed in the inactive category. Something else odd is that there is not a separate iCloud folder create in my calendars. Everything is just listed under my calendars. The reason I mention this also is because my roommate's computer with the same configuration as mine has a separate folder for the iCloud calendars. He is also able to create reminders.

I have been dealing with this for too long at this point, and it's very frustrating. Any assistance that could be offered at this point will be more than appreciated. I'll be happy to provide any info needed to resolve the issue. Thanks in advance!

You should have a separate icloud calendar if you have the icloud enabled. Did you sign out of icloud and sign back in? If so, and if you still don't see the icloud folders, check in file, Options, Addins and see if the addins are enabled.

The reminder message is typical for icloud events, however the reminder should still fire as Apple handles it, not Outlook.

I have signed out of iCloud and back in quite a few times. The add-ins are listed under inactive, so I'm not sure exactly what that means... at least they aren't disabled anymore. I've actually gone as far as to unnistall and reinstall both the icloud control panel and do a repair on Microsoft Office from the control panel. Any other ideas?
