Once you have your calendar populated with your annual events such as birthday, anniversaries, etc., you may want to see a list of them.

8. Run the Find tool, specify a subject of ” Birthday: “, Item type as Note, and specify the date range between January 1st and December 31st for the year.

Click to view.

You will now have a nice list view of the annual birthdays in your calendar.
