Problem

A Forum reader recently asked:

"Is there a way to designate certain days on the GroupWise calendar as a different color? For example, I'd like to make the days that our company is off on holiday appear a different color than the other days."

And here's the response from Novell's Dean Lythgoe ...

Solution

Not exactly as you are describing, but you can create 'Add-Day' events for those Holidays and then do one of two things:

1. Categorize those All-Day events with a "Holiday" category and set the color of the category.

2. Create a new "calendar" personal folder called "Holidays" and set the color for that calendar. All appointments, notes, tasks on that calendar will display in the color of the calendar.


Note from Chris Jones: "When I need to change the color of something, I click the "Options" or "Send Options" tab before posting or sending an item; from there you can Edit Categories - select or add a category then select a color for it."
