Displaying Categories in a Group Calender

Copper Contributor

In Outlook desktop .... When a user sets up a 2nd calendar to share with team members, they are able to see the category assigned to each meeting or event, however when one sets up a group calendar (all users are owners) categories are unique to the individual user's outlook setup.


Is there a way to assign categories to meetings so that ALL users can see them?

Hi @Odette Caldwell,


Sharing categories in a shared calendar or inbox is unavailable.  This functionality is a popular request from users, including me.

I suggest that you share this information on Microsoft's Outlook feedback portal. This way, other users can vote on it too. You can also share the link to this thread if you'd like. You have my vote, and I hope your suggestion gets implemented soon!
