We have a shared calendar at work.  Is it possible to assign a user a color so that their events are shaded that color?

You can do a conditional format on the calendar. Right click on the calendar -> View Settings.
Conditional Formatting.
Name the Rule Something e.g. User1
Condition
Organized by -> User 1 Ok
and Set the Color to whatever you want.

Believe this is per a user View (i.e. the person whose outlook this is done in.) this will not impact all users.

This may depend on which version of Exchange you are using.  Now that we are on Exchange 2010 and Outlook 2010, I am noticing that the color codes that other users put on the calendars are showing up when I open their calendar on my computer.

If you use the Categories option to put a colorized category on an event, it should show up to other users that open that calendar.  If you make a category for each user, and assign them unique colors, just make sure that each user tags their category on their events.

This requires a manual setting on each event, but should carry over between users without customizing the view settings, which are computer specific.
