I need to categories my calender events and reminders. Categories like Privat, work, family, etc with diff colours would be helpful!

Outlook Calendar - Add Category colors (from desktop) to new events within Android app. Currently you can manipulate category colors to existing appointments created in the desktop, but cannot add category colors to new events/appointments created within the Android app. There needs to be a way to add categories (auto generated from category colors on desktop) to new events/appointments created from within Android app. Thank you.

I should being able to colour code my events. Bit of a no brainer.
This is very important. With crowded schedules these colors allow rapid scanning of you upcoming events. Android phones need this capability.

Please just synchronize the feature that's available on the pc with every device!!!
I loved the minimal look of the Microsoft's Calendar app but it's just too bad to use comparing its features to, not to mention the calendar made by other developer, the PC one

I can generate categories. For example, i can generate a categories named EXAM and i can set the category to red so i will be alerted everytime i check my schedule.
Meanwhile, you need to synchronize the feature with the desktop or web version of Outlook Calendar so i can have the same view using different peripherals.
Please enable Calendar Category Colors on Outlook for Android. Currently we can only apply categories in OWA.
On android you can only view it but unable to change it.
This is important so that we can apply colors to differentiate events.
It should sync with Desktop selections.

coloured options for calendar in mobile app!!! i am able to choose a colour within the desktop version but option not available on phone :((
I totally want this. The strange thing is, I have set colors to some of my longtime repeated agenda points. But everything that is added now is one color. It would be helpful to be able to use colors again the easy way. There is a workaround but it is not very user friendly. If you have more than one account added to outlook you can put a different color to each of the accounts.

I want to add my own categories to my appointments for having a better overview of what art of appointments I have. These categories i also want to sync with outlook desktop, so that I have the same categories on all devices.

I welcome this enhancement to the Outlook app on Android. I use it extensively.

I have my outlook calender sorted by colour categories for years and was very surprised that the outlook app for android didn't support this. only individual colours for the different calenders. it would be nice to see this added.
this could be achieved by adding a coulour block/square to the colour bar to be able to assign two colour codes.
the colour bar would preferably signify the assigned category, the colourd block would signify the calenders this appointment mas made in.
in my calender on outlook from office 2010 if I assign a second category to an oppoitment it shows this by adding a coloured square. that way is how I picture that looking integrated in the outlook app for Android.
this could also apply to the web based outlook calender on outlook.com come to think of it.
there you can either see individual colours of the individual calendars if you don't use colour category's .
or only see the colour category's if you use them but not to wich calender the appointment belongs to.
adding a coulour block to signify wich calender it was made in would work here well aswell

Such a simple yet effective way to keep things organised. Please bring colours to the Outllok Calendar app!

Yes please, that is the only reason I'm using Google Calendar with the gSync app for synchronising colours.

Why is my calendar not color keyed as it is on my PC? It's amateur that Outlook for mobile doesn't come with the same features as the PC, when an app like Nine allows for all sorts of personalization. This should not be a request in 2019, but it is. Thanks for getting this updated so my PC and Mobile calendars will match.
sync Outlook calendar with color categories to android
