    Please move this up on priority!! We are moving to share emails and we are on the road a lot. Being able to view categories from the phone is a must for our teams!

    Wait, are you serious. It's been 4 years and they still haven't implemented such a simple feature?

  • Everett Burgan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I need this. I use categories for everything on my calendar. I know the brilliant minds at Microsoft can make this happen!

    This should be A) simple and B) a priority.

    I really need the ability to see message categories.

    To be able to see the color categories of events in the the Outlook app calendar is such a basic feature! How come it has not been implemented yet?

    I’ve created a list of categories and their associated colours within the desktop outlook application. I’d like to see those same categories and be able to create meetings and other events with them on outlook for iOS.

    Please add this **** functionality. Without it, the calendar app on Windows and IOS/Android App are pretty useless.

    Please allow the ability to a filtered calendar categories view so that I can view my calendar with only certain categories at a time when needed.
