I am trying to sync Outlook 2016 calendar with Outlook.com using office 365 my issue is when I upgraded from Outlook 2013 to 2016 I lost all my colored categories in an extensive Outlook calendar  I'm also trying to share calendars and wonder if Outlook.com will reflect the colors and categories that are being viewed on Microsoft outlook. as of yet I am unable to reflect the same layout with categories and colors that are on my computer to share with office staff
Thanks in advance  Bob

You'll not like it, but color categories are stored in local OST cache only when using outlook.com. What does it mean? It means that on any full synchronization (like upgrade) you'll find all you categories rendered to nothing. And you can't do anything here, sorry. You can only safely use Outlook categories with PST files and Exchange/Office365 accounts. Sorry again...
