Outlook Calendaring

Good Morning,

I created a shared Outlook calendar and assigned color categories to identify different groups/owners.  Folks are able to view and edit the calendar but are not seeing the color categories I applied.

Is there something I need to do to make this visible to all users?

Thanks in advance.

What version of Outlook?  All PC users?

Try going to the exchange management console on the 'server ' right click the created mailbox (ex: scheduling@mail.com) > manage full access permissions> and start adding the users who need access.  Close and reopen outlook on the users' computers and then you should see the color coordinated categories that you assigned for scheduling that they can all access and book appointments in an easy color coordinated layout.

Let me know if this works or not.

Outlook 2010.  It is this specific user, although I'm not sure if anyone else is using the Calendar as she does.

I would suspect if she's not using the same calendar as everyone else that might be why color categories are not applying.  What have you tried since?
