HEX Codes for Calendars and Categoriy Colors
Allow for custom colors of categories and calendars by allowing users to create colors based on HEX Codes (google calendar does this already so I'd love for you to blast them out of the competition)

Allow for users to create custom colors for the categorize function in emails. Currently, I have 25 color options, but there are only about 1/2 of them that I can use because they are so close in color. I'd like to be able to create my own custom colors.
I'd also like to be able to use colors and/or highlighting in the Subject line of emails.
I like Outlook.com and its mobile apps very much. However, I do notice things that put question marks in my head from time to time.
One of these things are the calendar colors. I work very intensively with calendar colors. The color tells me immediately what an appointment is (e.g. an appointment at work, with my family or for me privately). Unfortunately the available calendar colors are very limited. In addition, the colors differ depending on the application! In Outlook.com I have different colors to choose from than in the iOS App. In the Windows 10 Calendar App I have different colors to choose from. In Outlook 365 I have other colors to choose from. I don't have an Android phone, but I guess there are other colors available. Basically it wouldn't really bother me if I had at least the same colors to choose from. But I only have simple colors like "yellow" in the iOS App, but not in Outlook.com. Here I have only "orange" to choose from.
So can you please make the Outlook experience more consistent overall? I suggest, you simply get the possibility to create your own colors using hex code. And that on every device!
Alternatively, it would be nice if you had at least the same colors available in all apps!
