Set Two Reminders in Microsoft Outlook 2014 ?

Hi, Is there some way in Microsoft Outlook 2014 to set two 'reminder' alerts at the same time ?     In other words, when a calendar event is created a reminder could be set for say 2 hours AND 2 days.  I do not mean set the first reminder for two days and then when that goes of reset it to 'remind' again in another 22 hours but rather at the time the event is created to be able to set two different reminders that that point.

TIA,

Hi LGroup1,

There is no way to set up multiple reminders in Outlook 2013. The only way to do it from Outlook is to snooze it than make a new one. The best thing You can do to work-around is to use Task with reminders. So You can do it like this - Simply just drag calendar item to Your Task folder and it will create a task with the same info, then You can set a reminder on it, so You will set one reminder on calendar item, and one on task, and it will do the same as multiple reminders. Microsoft also told their users that they will do that with next Office bundle.  Also If You are using Gmail accounts it will be easier to add things to google account then let outlook synchronize them. If You have any questions or concerns please let me know.

Thanks,

D.
