Color Code specific events on calendar - GOOGLE REQUEST PLEASE! nnej 8/28/09 8:43 AM
Hello,

This has been discussed by multiple other users, however I'd like to request that users have the option of color coding events to differentiate them (E.g. work/school/personal/appts etc. - similar to Outlook). Thank you!

Yes, this seems like it should be feature from day one.

I find it's easier to create separate calendars for this (similar to labels on gmail). For instance, I have calendars for uni, social, health, leisure, personal etc which can be customised by colour, name etc.

You can choose which calendars you want to display in the main view by toggle selecting them on or off (for instance, if you only want to see what's happening on your social calendar).

When you create an event just choose which calendar you wish to include it under (ie "school"). 

Customise your calendar under the "My calendars" box on left by clicking the arrow next to the calendar you created [eg "personal"] and selecting an option from the drop down menu (change colours, or open settings to change name, notifications etc).

Ah, after reading the thread link above, I see what you mean... would be good to have more customisation.

Hey guys,

Yeah I heard of these options, just was hoping that it wouldn't be such a tedious process.
It seems so intuitive just to create an event, colour code it and then look at the calendar as a whole (monthly/weekly) to see all the events in your life ON ONE CALENDAR. : )

Hope google reads this!

Does anyone have a way to work around this limitation in a very simple way when sharing a calendar?

We keep a shared calendar in our small business and I don't want to ask everybody to share and enter in several *different calendars* in order to see a color coded view of various types of events.

This is driving me nuts! Of course, it is free. :)  But still...

Suggestion for this feature request:  Integrate the gmail labels feature and include the label colors from the lab.

The idea of switching between calendars is not efficient enough, Please COLOR CODE EVENTS! Those switching from Palm to Iphone know what I mean. This has been a feature I have used since 2000. I'm not operating as effectively without it. Please! Please! implement this.

Color would be gret.   I moved from another calendar to google assuming it had features.   I would also like to see some level of priority ability.   if you look at a particular date, you do not always see all the events for that day, especially when looking at a week or month calendar.   I know Google staff is good, and can accomplish this.

Or Better Yet, allow Calendar events to have the same Labels as in Emails.

Just one more vote for color event labels in the calendar.  Work with a lot of users, many who, like me are looking at migrating from Blackberry to Android and from Outlook to Gmail.  Lack of color event labels and the hassle of synching with Outlook seem to be the bug roadblocks for many.  Have figured out the workarounds for the synch with the emerging tools, have not been able to get around the monochhrome color labels.  Agree with others that 6 colors would be adequate though more would be nicer, especially if custom colors were available.

Color coding events is a feature that we have been asked for fairly frequently. We constantly prioritize requests based on a number of features, so rest assured that we have heard the need for color coding loud and clear.
