Couple of questions related to calender

Not open for further replies.


Outlook version
Outlook 2010 32 bit
Email Account
Exchange Server
Using Outlook 2010 and Windows 7.

I can create a new event/meeting in a shared calender. I applied a custom category blue to it (name is "building"). Problem is that other people in the office (who share this particular calender) do not see the category that I assigned to it. They can see "building" - but it shows up as white instead of blue. The only way they can see the blue color is if they rename their blue category to "building". Is this the way it's supposed to work in Outlook 2010?

Second Question:

When I create a new event/meeting in teh aforementioned shared calender, I noticed that it automatically defaults to 'available'? Is there a way to make the default, mark as busy, instead?
