I use categories/colors heavily on my Outlook calendar so I can quickly and easily tell what type of meeting it is (status, client, sales, personal, etc.). I am often double-booked and this makes it easier to make decisions on what takes highest priority.

 

I am new to Teams and loving it! Especially the calendar features now that we are all working from home. But it would be SO MUCH BETTER if it obeyed and showed the category/color settings from my Outlook Exchange calendar in the Teams calendar.

 

Please consider adding this as a feature in an upcoming version.

Not currently possible - but there is a uservoice here

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/38487070-colour-categories-in-...

Categories in themselves are under review

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/19169926-custom-group-categori...

Would vote to push it up the agenda

Hope that answers your question!

Best, Chris
