Expand Calendar Color Choices
The selection of colors for calendars is very limited, and the 9 choices given have several that look very similar. I would love more choices, or at least choices that are more distinct from each other.
Thank you for your feedback on the beta! We’re working on expanding the number of calendar color choices.

Just updated Office 365 and, sorry, I don't like the almost-pastel, watered down appearance of the Category colors. Would REALLY like the ability to change the color palette. Can you PLEASE provide a color choice ability like with font colors in Word to add colors to the Category palette?

How long does it take to work on this issue?

Same colour for calendars
Can the colours for the calender in outlook-app correspond with colours in desktop calendar?
Please make the colours of the calendars in the "My calendars" section customisable.
Please make the color options the same as in the Windows 10 app and synchronize the chosen colors.
11 collaborators and only 9 colors!! Can you add some please?
The mobile app has a good range of colours for the calendars. Please adjust the online versions! :)
MS admin said working on it April 25, 2018. Has anyone any news when the colour range will be expanded?

There should be more color choices for calendars. Colors are not just a matter of aesthetics, but they're very useful for distinguishing calendars and events.
9 is Far too limited - Should be able to select whatever we want.

I agree! Whats up with these limited pale color choices? I need a magnifying glass to see these shades. You can do better!!!

There are just too fewer colours in the calendar and most of them seem so close to each other (just different hues). It would be nice if we could choose our own colours using HTML/HEX syntax or a colour picker.

More calendar color options should match the colors available on Windows 10 calendar app.

Adding comment since I really need this, and I want to be notified when work is done.
Do not expand number of colors. Add color picker so user can choose any color.

!! More options for calendar !!
1) Colors (Only 9 colors actually)
2) When selecting a calendar, have the option to have a tab with a list of all events in this calendar with a chronological view.
Allow custom color picker for calendars. Also upgrade to vibrant present colors.
Wish there are more customized color options for the color for the calendar just like google. So it will look more aesthetically pleasing !!!

Outlook allows you to change the background color of your calendar text, for labels and appointment text. There are only 9 colors available. I would like the option to enter a custom color, such as white, instead of being limited to the 9 preset backgrounds.
Please also consider adding a hexidecimal feature to the color palette so users are not limited to the preset calendar colors.
