Can someone tell me if the Outlook phone app is capable of displaying the colors set up for categories in the calendar? We have numerous teams using resource calendars and color coding the appointments with a different color for each person. They are complaining that they don't see the colors in the Outlook App on their phone. I tested this on my Android phone and don't see any colors. The user that submitted the complaint has an iPhone. I am having difficulty finding out from googling whether this feature is available in the Outlook phone app or not because the results just keep coming up for Outlook not the Outlook phone app. And if it is available, is it available for both Android & iOS or only one of those?

@marerose when working with an exchange online account your labels will be shown in the Outlook app for iOS, however you can't apply them.
So for viewing and changing them I would advise the mobile view.
This was tested with an exchange online account. When working with exchange on premises this behaviour is different I noticed :(

You can if you use the online version. Go in your browser to outlook calendar, from there you can add the calendar to home on your phone. Find the calendar icon and login from online not to the app. There you can color code from - more options - categories. You can not add this as a widget, only the app.
But at least you can color code in your phone :D

The only color coding I see in the month view is for different calendars, not for different categories within one calendar.
Am I correct?

No, If a calendar has a color assigned to it (You cannot assign a category to a calendar) all events within that calendar will adhere to that color, unless a category that has a different color is applied to the specific event. You would then see the color for the calendar, and the color of the category which was assigned to that event. If you click on the specific event, you would see what category is assigned. You will see on my attached screenshot that I have assigned the Holiday category (Pink) to St. Patrick's Day. However, at the present time, you cannot assign/change categories on the mobile Outlook app.

@Allan Clarke the issue isn't viewing to be honest.
The issue is editing.
I can see my color coded events in my calendar view (also in day/week view on iOS btw), but I can't create a new event on Outlook for iOS and set a certain category to it.

@Rob354 I recently found Nine. It works great but costly. I wish MS would add this same functionality into the Outlook app.
