Support calendar categories

Categories in the calendar are supported in Outlook for Windows, in the online internet version and are a must for the android app

    When I create a new appointment in the mobile calendar, I should be able to categorize it, like I can on the desktop version. The mobile calendar now shows categorization colours, but I can't assign or change them in the app.

    Calendars, emails, folders, signatures, etc. should sync EXACTLY as they have been set by user on pc/laptop etc. Hence the word "SYNC". It is an expectation. We should not have to be sorting, scrolling, or using multiple apps to get these features. It is quite unacceptable.

    it's really a must when organizing your agenda on a mobile phone. It prevents a lot of people not using outlook and still relying on google calendar.

    Guys, come one! It is a shame don´t sync category colors. I had to buy a software to sync manually by polling to do that. Everybody that has a very busy schedulle want to use the calendar widget with colors. It helps a lot. Thank you

    This would be really helpful. I use my Outlook for everything and have a different category for the different type of work or the status of work.

    On pc i can set categories for calendars but in the android app i can't set or even see those categories

    Finally got all of my meetings and appointments synced, just to find that all the categories are gone. would be useful to get that put in ASAP

    We 4 use one shared calendar on corporate use to see each others day. The categories are set with colours to separate us. It is a lot missing in the app. Please add it here

    Agree 100%. I use categories to separate business, doctors, kids, etc. This is a must.

  • Chris Hall commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    it would be nice to have more control over our files-folders...such as delete or more rules

    I agree! please make this available, because I'm a heavy user of categories and colours for clearability. thanks
