Outlook Calendar colour categories bleeding through Sharepoint 2007 to other Outlook clients RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are currently running Exchange 2007 and Sharepoint 2007.  We have created a stock standard calendar in Sharepoint with no event colour coding added.   We then had staff connect this sharepoint calendar to their outlook account.   This works correctly and the staff can update the calendar either through outlook or the sharepoint site.  

    The problem arises when one staff member decides to "colour categorise" the shared calendar in their outlook account.   These colours then somehow manage to either appear in another members outlook copy of the shared calendar, or if not visible, will have the "name" of the colour category appear when the entry is opened???

    How the heck is this happening?   The Sharepoint Calendar itself is not affected by the colour categories entered by staff in the outlook copy.
