I've set up a shared calendar appointment schedule where all the counselors can see all the appointments. I am using Categories to color code which appointments go to which counselors. I can see the colors on my ( the creator ) calendar but the counselors' calendars do not show the color categories. How can I have the color coding show up on their views?

Hi,

As I know you need to set colors used in shared calendar as well as name of colors in shared calendar exactly the same on each system sharing calendar in Outlook, in order for setting to transfer over.

For example 

If you set an Orange color for PC1 as James

Than on other computers 

You have to set orange to James, case sensitive

For the categories to display correctly, each color category used has to be set up this way.
