Outlook 2007 calendar to sharepoint 2007 with categories & colours

Hi all

I have set up a calendar in sharepoint 2007 which is linked in to outlook 2007.

My question is, is there an easy way (without 3rd party apps) to colour code outlook entries on the sharepoint calender view.

I have tried the Pathtosharepoint example, and although good, it only allows to add colours to new entries, or manually add a colour after entry.

Can this be done automatically via scripting or via copying over the outlook category?

Thanks in advance

OS = XP
Outlook = 2007
Sharepoint = 2007

Hi Sandipkharde

I have just used the orbitone example and works great, however when moved from outlook 2007 or emailed direct sharepoint sets the category to default.

Can the category set in Outlook be retained when sent to sharepoint?

You can play around it else may need to develop custom solution like sharepoint - outlook integration ? where same category will ratain in sharepoint.

looks like you can do it via a registry key, I have to wait until tomorrow to get the work guys to allow me permissions :(

Unfortunatley  Using outlook 2007 and sharepoint 2007 there is no OUtlook Sharepoint Sync Integration.

Would would be limited to ising 3rd party solutions, wich are dodgy at best as OUtlook and Sharepoint Sync were not suppored for these versions.

The best alternative solution is rather than trying to sync the outlook calendar to a sharpoint calendar....

Just connect the outlook calendar in Sharepoint

This is done my adding the OWA Mail Web Part
For the Mail Url use
https://<server name>/owa/<SMTP address>/?cmd=contents&module=calendar

Enter Server Name and the Calendar you want to display

Now any changes made in the Exchange Calendar for this Mial Account will automatically be seen in the OWA account displayed on the Sharepoint page

This didnt work via the registry due to group policy settings, but without GP it would have worked.

Can this question please be closed.
