Hi, I have a requirement to provide a custom appointment form in Outlook 2010 with a specific category colour to be visible to all the users through Public Folders. The owner of the mailbox will create the appointments to share with the organisation, but then I want them to see the colour scheme provided, not their Outlook default calendar colour scheme. I have owner permissions on the mailbox and can create and save the colour category appointments, but my colleagues cannot see the colour, just the default Outlook Colours. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Custom form with custom colour category visible to all users in public fol

Unfortunately, Color Categories in Outlook are per user, not per folder. The only way I know to make everyone have the same color is by using a utility. See Outlook Categories and Color Categories - Slipstick Systems for a list of utilities
