Outlook 2007 - Public Folders - Categories

We recently upgraded from Office 2003 to Office 2007.  We have public calendars that everyone can access.  In Outlook 2007 the previous public calendars' colors do not appear on the public calanders.  From what I have read, category colors are specific to each user's Outlook settings.  There is no "public" category settings for "public" calendars.

Has anyone found anything that will make "public" category settings for public calendars?

Hi, nulad.

You can do it with some scripting.  Something like the solution I described in this article: http://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/Software/Office_Productivity/Groupware/Outlook/Outlook-2007-Corporate-Categories-System.html

Outlook itself has no means of sharing categories or of restricting a public folder to using a fixed set of categories.
