Hi Experts

I like to use Categories to change the colour of certain Outlook appointments. I usually do this when I create the appointment.

I have a 3rd party app that creates appointments in my calendar. I cannot ask the 3rd party app to set a particular Category - BUT - I can ask it to set the "Show As" field (Free, Tentative, Busy, Out of the Office)

Is there a way to change an Appointment Category after it is created based on its "Show As" value? I assume this needs to be scheduled every xx (15) minutes??
