Please add calendar categories, so that the colours match what I have on my PC. Thanks. (I have asked for this several times before)
Currently you can only categorize calendar events from a desktop or laptop computer. However, I use categories to mark items on my calendar as done, and I’m always on the go and never actually at a computer. Not being able to categorize through my iPhone really limits my productivity and organization. PLEASE make a feature that will allow users to categorize calendar events from their iPhone!
Need to be able to add or edit categories for calendar events.
Super annoying to make an appointment on the app and then have to go on your computer to change the category color! TIA
that only works if all devices are compatible. that seems more of a dedicated forever updating item which doesn’t apply across the grid, square block in a round space will never fit , it’s got to be a mobility capable bridge without 66 gate keeper doorways to fall thru when there’s only one key holder. that’s a recipe for Genocide, digitally and AI is going to survive mutability faster than we fleshy’s will. or perhaps not, pondering isn’t useless, never talking to others about progressive idealistic possibilities kills energy before input inserts anywhere. u know who i am an u are not impressed i’m sure, that’s why growth mf hurts. 🙃🪁
Would be extremely helpful to categorize new calendar entries.
At the moment it is necessary to reopen all new appointments in the desktop app to categorize the new items
allow categories and different color for the categories similar to Outlook itself
Categories can be allocated on desktop and they are visible on the mobile app, however, they can’t be allocated via mobile app.
I realy need the caregory colors to match in the app.
This is a must have.

I love assigning different calendar items to classes using the categories feature on outlook desktop. The problem is, they still show up on outlook iOS, but I can’t create new events with these tags
It will be important to have the ability to select a category in the calendar appointment.
I fully agree it is not friendly to use. Why not keep to the calendar which it builds in all smart device. For example, I Phone.
Dear Outlook developers,
I’m really enjoying the Outlook Mail and Calendar app on my iPhone and iPad a lot.
However, there is one feature which is still missing in the Calendar app, which is the ability to categorise your calendar entries (this feature is already available in Outlook Online, and it’s really excellent and very helpful).
It would be great if you could add this excellent feature in a future update.
Thank you so much for everything, and please keep it all up!
How to see already read emails by date?
Please add this feature for the shared family-calendar also!
I was extremely sad when Microsoft bought Sunrise calendar app, but hoped that the features available in sunrise would eventually be available in outlook. That has not happened. With so many different kinds of tasks, types of work, along with social events, and all the rest, I feel shackled to outlook because we use it for work, but these features are absent. I’d love to love using outlook.

I would love the ability to assign a color category to my outlook calendar.
The ability to add & edit Categories in iOS will save me from having to later revisit appointments (added to the calendar on iPhone while on the move) on another non-iOS device, in order to apply a category.
I use categories to mark items in my calendar that are then danced with MS Flow to different lists and public calendars.
Not being able to set categories in the iOS outlook app makes my workflow really ugly since I have to remember setting all the categories later on my desktop or use OWA which is not so user friendly as well.
Please add this core feature to the iOS app !!
As a student it’d be nice to have custom categories to separate my different due dates from each class.
Ability to add and manage categories on mobile
