    Default Shared Calendars - Categories / Event Colors

    Hello -

    We use our Zimbra Server in a professional office, and many users within the office share their calendars. Calendar events are added/modified by many different users.

    The sharing of the calendars seems to be working very well, with one exception:

    If Person A shares their calendar to Person B... and Person B adds a new calendar event, and assigns it to a category and makes the color of the appointment red -- Person A (and all other persons accessing the shared calendar) don't see the category/color set the same as Person B.

    We use colors to distinguish the type of appointment -- and it's very important to us that all users see the calendar associated with a particular category, and see the event as a particular color.

    Assistance would be greatly apprecaited. Thank you in advance.

    Default Shared Colors

    This feature is not yet supported. See ZCO bug (enhancement) 30523, specifically comment #5, which indicates the dependency on server bug (enhancement) 5210. Vote for this if you want it.

    Thank you -- we are very interested in this feature and will vote for it accordingly.

    Is this available in the native Zimbra interface? Or is it not available in both Outlook and the standard Zimbra interface?

    It's not available in the Zimbra Web client either. It will take some server work to get this done. Note that if you are in a shared calendar in the web client, if you right click the appointment, Tag Appointment is greyed out.

    Default Update

    Hi,
    Has there been any update on this ticket. It's a big issue not being able to share calendars if you color code appointments.
