Increase the number of color options in the Outlook Calendar palette from 9 to 16-25, increase contrast, and allow user editing of colors.
I find that I cannot change the color of agenda items or calendar items for my email accounts in Microsoft Outlook. I use various Android apps on my tablet and phone, that allow me to show Agenda items and Calendar items. If I use gmail, I can easily select a color, whereas with Outlook accounts I cannot change the color to suit my preferences. Also provide an option or feature to set different events with different colors in Calendar as well as in Categories in Microsoft Outlook 2016.
Allow changing of color of ONE specific meeting that is occurring within a meeting series. Often my boss gets invited to SEVERAL reoccurring meeting a month but would only like to attend it once every other week.. It would be nice to be able to color coordinate which one he is actually going to vs just leaving them all on his calendar or deleting them individually.
It is completely bizarre that in 2019 we can only pick from 25 colours! Please let us just use a colour picker like other Office applications
the contrast is barely noticeable when highlighting an email address / subject line that you can't tell what is being copied to the clipboard

For years, I've loved having the ability to customize Calendar category colors. I use blue for classes, green for medical, purple for events, etc. ALL those colors are now too dark to READ the black lettering. I searched for a way to make the writing white. No -OL 2019, like 365, only puts white lettering on black, red & charcoal. We need a way to allow users to modify the depth of color, as in Word, Excel & Publisher. On an Excel chart I make monthly for an organization, I have a different pastel color as the background for each line/category of volunteer. Their names stand out, in the cell for their job..,..BECAUSE of the black, navy-blue or dark green I use for the lettering....all on pastel backgrounds.
Chart readers do not end up on the wrong line....since each TASK tracks across in a given color. Please allow us the same shade & script color-definition in Calendar...!

Couleur Calendrier Outlook
Color Calendar Outlook
Il serait bien de pouvoir personnaliser l’apparence du calendrier avec les couleurs de notre choix
It would be nice to be able to customize the appearance of the calendar with the colors of our choice.
instead of stick figure buttons, bring back color icons and buttons. The new Outlook, Excel, Word, Powerpoint screens are very difficult to read and cause greater eye strain. We aren't all 24 years old.

Make a user friendly calendar. Allow different color coding for different types of events to time block. Make everything user friendly. Allow setting RSVP appointments from the calendar. Integrate click and drag navigation. Allow me to add by clicking in the calendar. Allow an integrated experience. Allow me to share my events in the calendar.

I'd really like to see additional or custom colors beyond the default 6 for Categories.
The Outlook 2016 calendar colors are much too pale. Please allow us to change back to old color schemes. Especially whole day appointments are hardly visible anymore which leads to mistakes and stresses my eyes. :-) Thanks

For sure we need a larger diversity of colors for the agendas
Viel mehr Kalenderfarben zur Verfügung stellen.
To provide many more calendar colors.
In Outlook 2010 konnte man 15 Kalenderfarben einstellen. Ich dachte, dass man in Outlook 2019 bestimmt mehr Farben zur Auswahl hat.
Falsch es sind nur noch 9 Farben.
Das ist meiner Meinung nach für ein Programm wie Outlook deutlich zu wenig.
Bitte viel viel mehr Kalenderfarben!
In Outlook 2010 you could set 15 calendar colors. I thought that in Outlook 2019 certainly more colors to choose from.
Wrong, there are only 9 colors left.
In my opinion, this is clearly not enough for a program like Outlook.
Please much more calendar colors!
In previous versions, there were more color choices for multiple calendars. They now seem very limited. Could we have as much choice as we have for categories?
There are too few colors you can add to your outlook calendar. Please either add a lot more calendar colors or let us choose them by hex value.

Why is this not an obvious option? I would think this to be one of many foundational design priorities for a calendar
Uli Schepp commented
It´ll be such a so nessesary feature to have more than 9 similar colors.
Do Microsoft have only so less callenders to work with?
I don´t... and it´s just such a mess to have only this less and similar colors....! :-(
Please add this back in. It was in previous versions of outlook. Bad idea removing
Agree! Bring purple back, why would you take it away in the first place!
Pinks and blues are so similar you can't tell them apart!
Helena Jerney commented
Agreed! The existing colors are dismal and do not provide enough variety or contrast. Please make the color spectrum you have available on the other apps.

We need this very must...

This request has been ongoing since the current version was introduced. Excel, etc have a choice from full spectrum range. How hard can it be? Do Microsoft actually take notice of these requests for improvements?
