    Hi,

    Does anyone know how to set up reminders on Microsoft Outlook 2016 based on the Hebrew date as opposed to the Gregorian one (e.g. remind me every Tamuz the 3rd not July the 3rd) . This was available on previous versions of Outlook. I already have the Hebrew calendar added, and it shows all the dates. Microsoft refused to help me more than telling me to sync my Outlook account with my gmail account (which also has a Hebrew calendar added) but that hasn't helped...

    Many thanks

    I apologize in advance if I am interpreting your question incorrectly. I am inferring that you are attempting to set up a yahrzeit reminder on your calendar. If that is the case, I suggest that you go to the following URL.

    www.hebcal.com/yahrzeit/

    There, you can set up custom reminders that when brought into your calendar, will convert to the correct Gregorian equivalent. I believe it will also offer a holiday reminder alternative as well. I’ve used this successfully myself.

    The list seems to be limited to seven entries. Is there any way of adding more yahrzeits/birthdays?
