    I echo Cathy Munger. "Google Maps or Bing -- whatever the client's default is. MS already does it for contacts, why not for calender appointments?"

    Yes, please. This feature is already available in any number of free Android and iOS apps. Why not a paid app, from Microsoft?

    The workaround for this problem is to open a new task. Select 'Categorize" from the ribbon. Then 'All categories..." Either create a new category or select an existing one and add a shortcut key to it (I use CTRL+F7). Then click 'OK'. Now, even when the Categorize option isn't available on the ribbon (such as is the case with appointments), enter CTRL+F7 and your default category will be applied. Right click on that default category and you can then select the actual category you desire, for that appointment. From a Task you can create your entire set of color categories you want. This is the most cumbersome solution, but the only one I've found. I take it a step further and use gSyncit to sync my calendar to Google calendar, including the categories. It takes a little while to set up, but it works.

    It's as if Microsoft wants you to use Google's products, instead. . . Yes, please return categories, even to those of us who use (horrors!) IMAP.
