Is it possible to set up birthday (or whatever) alert pop-up in Outlook 2013?

I have been fiddling around but couldn't figure out how to!

Double click on the date and set a birthday reminder there is another tab in the window that opens for setting frequency which will be yearly on said date.

I no longer use Outlook so can't have a proper look

You can set a Birthday Reminder for a contact easily.
Select you Contacts tab and select the Contact
Open the Contact
Select "Details" at the Top of the screen
You will see a 'Birthday" and "None" shown
Click on the little Calendar and select the Date required.
Click "Save and Close"

Now select the Calendar tab and in the calendar select the date previously select.
By default the date for the Calendar reminder is 15 minutes, change so you will have time to prepare for the birthday, up to 2 weeks
Select "Recurrence" and set "Appointment Recurrence"
Then click OK

If they are not in your Contact List then just create an Appointment on the particular day in the Calendar.
The adjust the "Set Reminder" as required, and Recurrence

Thank you Jedsdad once more. It's working perfectly as it should - the pop-up alerted me this morning!
