The consolidation of Outlook labels and categories in 07 as compared to 03

results in having to use many more mouse clicks to apply basic color codes to

outlook calendar appointments. I use as many as 30 categories for various

projects and office jobs that change over time and whose colors would not be

useful to try to remember or apply to appointments. Rather, being able to

code a few simple colors for things like "in office appointment" "out of

office but in town appointment" "personal reminder," "out of town travel

hold," "office work hold," or "vacation" helps me see at a glance where I am

suppose to be and whether the particular calendar item is a hard commitment,

flexible, or just a good idea that might move easily. To do that with

categories in 2007 requires many more mouse clicks to select among my large

number of categories than applying simple labels in 2003 and prior.

It's definitely not coming back in Outlook 2010.
