Color categories

Status
Not open for further replies.
Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this...




We have offices in different locations and want to assign a color for each office. We can then add items to a shared calendar with the color assigned for that office so we all know what office is doing what on any given day.




With that said:


1) Is there a way to assign colors to people as a default and then have that color show automatically as they post items to this shared calendar? If so is there a way to only assign that color as they post on the shared calendar as I would NOT want this when they add items to their own calendar?




2) If the above is not an option, is there a way to create a new color category that EVERYONE will see? Right now I know I can create a new color category but only I can see it; I'm wanting everyone on the Global Address List to be able to see this new color category and name.




Let me know if I need to explain in greater detail and once again, thank you for your time! :)

No.

I don't believe public folders have master category lists that everyone can

see, but I could be wrong.

As Brian has said, Public Folders don't have a master category list (as

opposed to mailboxes).

Hence, if you want everybody to see the same color applied to a certain

category for public folders, you need to create the same master category

list on every computer. You can do that manually, or use Category Manager to

share your categories. For details see the link in my signature, please.

Best regards

1) Is there a way to assign colors to people as a default and then have that color show automatically as they post items to this shared calendar? If so is there a way to only assign that color as they post on the shared calendar as I would NOT want this when they add items to their own calendar?

For other user's looking for a solution to this issue:

Since Exchange 5.0 we have a tool for that called Exchange Group Calendar.

It does all of the above.

regards,

John
