    Categories in Meetings (2007)

    We use categories quite extensively in setting up meetings within our team. The problem we are running into is that even though we created identical categories for each of us, the categories designated for a meeting are not coming through to the other team members. Is there a way to make this happen, or has MS been oh-so-helpful again?

    To be more specific: I create a meeting and invite the rest of my team. I choose a category for this meeting. Every member of my team already has this category created within their Outlook. When the team member accepts the meeting, there are no categories associated with the meeting on his calendar.

    Thanks!

    I think you are out of luck without some programming effort. See Color categories in e-mail messages at Discontinued features and modified functionality in Outlook 2007 - Outlook - Microsoft Office Online.

    Thanks for that link Joe. Some of those functionality losses will be very annoying. I frequently update Meeting Requests which I Save but do not Send until I check on a few things and add body text - but I won't be able to do that in 2007 according to that link.

    You're welcome John. I guess Microsoft is just trying to not so subtly teach you the error of your ways. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>
