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.

I share the frustration and aggravation experienced by many others below.

Les couleurs pastel et néon de la version v2004 ne sont pas assez différentes ; les couleurs de la version v1908 étaient beaucoup plus contrastées.
Merci de proposer trois gammes de palettes de couleurs :
- contrasté (v1908) ;
- pastel ;
- néon ;
Le fond gris des jours non œuvrés est trop clair dans la version 2004. Il serait bien aussi que la zone du jour (sam. et dim.) et de la date (23, 24) soient grisés comme les heures et les jours non œuvrés. Là aussi, la version 1908 étaient bien mieux !
On se demande vraiment où vous allez chercher vos graphistes !
Why do you feel the need to mess with color pallettes. I just spent an hour of wasted time thinking the monitor was dead, rebooting and fumbling through settings to find its been applied as a back end change and we have no control to amend. It looks dreadful, dull and is simply an awful colour choice. Why? Just put it back or if you feel it's needed, give us a choice. Develop the app don't f with your users. Stupid. Please change it back!
Why don't you fix this?
This change that has occurred in outlook has really created problems for our section. We are a color coordinated section and based off the change it has messed a lot of things for us. Request you add a custom feature to go back the original colors. Yes the dark colors are available in the dark scheme but we need it in the white and other schemes.
The new colors are awful but more than that I cannot understand: WHY Microsoft can think to decide first and then change whenever they like something so clearly personal as the colors you want to use in the calendar.
GIVE US CUSTOMIZABLE COLORS (and a decent number of them too).
Is is such an easy thing that it is a insult to be here begging for it...
Please restore the former color palette! The newly released muted colors are not nearly as distinguishable.

I want to reverse the recent change to category colours in outlook or choose another palette. How do I do this ?
Secondly, we are the customers NOT Microsoft, so you should not make changes to any customisable feature without giving your CUSTOMERS the option to accept or do otherwise.
Everything just changed in category colors for outlook calendar - not a helpful change. The colors are too much the same for the categories now - can't differentiate between them. Please allow us to change colors from a large color palette or make the colors brighter, distinct, more contrast please.
Categories pastel colors doesn't work. Dark orange is more clear than orange. Add more colors.
The latest update of May 2020 changes the way too limited color palette to similar-ish grim pastel colors. Not only is this no step forward at all, it even makes distinctions much more difficult now. It looks all messy and depressing. I feel some strong Outlook2002 vibes, but not of the good kind.
After updating the Outlook 365 Calendar, they have become much, much worse with the colors.
I have always run with a gray background color and on the days of the calendar itself it has been white.
Now after the latest update of Office package there is also gray and automatically there will be different colors on each day depending on which meeting is booked on that day.
Please, please, please, change back so you can get what they were before
This will permit much more detailed categorization and facilitate the use of group email boxes (color code for each user, plus color code for category)

The update of 12th May 2020 hs changed the colour palette for Outlook Calendar categories to a pastel palette. This is very unhelpful as it makes the clear distinctions that were available very difficult to see. I have been colour coding for more than 12 years and now everything is a mess.
Add a color option for the calendar curent time bar (the indicator line that passes through the previous days of the week and indicates the current time).
The new bar ends with a point and the colour is black only. Can this be user selected, I personally would prefer something more obvious like red.
Why is there still no user-definable color-set?
I read something that it should be possible on android version:
I depend on the color categories in my very complicated schedule to help me track and organize my day and week. The new colors are not only ghastly in and of themselves, they are too similar to each other and add work instead of making things easier. I hate them so much that I am even considering switching platforms. Please bring back the old colors, and/or give us a color wheel so we can choose our own.
I hate the palette colors now used in Outlook 2016. For me it's hard to see colors, because of color blindness/confusion. So I want to use high contrasted colors so I can see the difference in colors. Please add back the normal colors or add the ability to use custom color.
Das neue Design für den Outlook-Kalender ist sogar ganz gut.
NUR: die Pastellfarben sind wieder da :-(
Ich verwende die Farben sehr viel, im Outlook.com kann man auch von Pastell auf kräftige Farben umstellen nur im Outlook hat man das offenbar wieder übersehen.

This is Outlook, not any kind of stupid MS Bob. Take care of the most used piece of Microsoft apllication software, please. Treat it the way it deserves, thank you.
