This small tutorial will teach you how to create a message reminder on your system. You can also schedule your message – when to display and how often to display.

Here’s how we do it

  • Search for task scheduler in the start menu and click on Task Scheduler.

task_scheduler

  • Click on Task Scheduler Library folder and then click on Create Task.

ts1

  • Type in the Name of the task and give a brief Description about the task.

ts2

  • Click on Triggers tab and then add a new trigger by clicking on the New button.

ts3

  • You can select any trigger event from the drop down menu. I chose to Begin the task On a schedule.

ts4

  • Next, you can choose how often to display the message or set a particular date and time. Various options such as synchronization, delay, repeat, etc. can also be set.
  • Click on Actions tab and then add an action that should be performed by clicking on the New button.

ts5

  •  Select Display a message from the drop down. Type in the Title and Message that you would like to be displayed on the screen. Click on OK.
  • Under the Conditions tab you specify certain conditions for the task. The task will run if and only if the conditions that you specified are true. Example: You can run the task if the system is idle for ten minutes.

ts6

  • Under the Settings tab, you can specify the settings that can change or modify the behavior of your scheduled task. For example, you can run a task that was missed or you can also restart every failed task.

ts7

  • Click on OK. You can now find your scheduled task added to the existing list of tasks.

ts9

  • See the screenshot of the remainder that displays a message.

Never miss anything!
