Category colors set by the calender owner

Post by harves » Mon Dec 30, 2013 9:09 pm

We are trialing the software for one of our clients. The issue that we have found is if we create a shared calendar and setup color coding on the categories within the calendar. A user, with contribute access, has the ability to change the category colors and by doing that it changes the category colors for everyone that is using the shared calendar. Is there a away that the category colors can only be changed by the owner of the calendar.
Thanks in advance

Hi harves, welcome to the forums. When calendars are configured to be shared, you can specify access permissions for each user. Unfortunately, there isn't currently a mechanism to prevent other users from modifying category colors, since those are independent of individually shared calendars.

To prevent changes to category colors from propagating to other computers, you could have other users uncheck the box labeled "Share category, location, and priority appearances" in the Sharing Options.
