Question: I can't even with these calendar tabs! I don't like the colors, and I can't seem to get any kind of consistency with them! Please help!
Answer: I know these feels. I also know it's being worked on, but in the meantime, I have a workaround for you, and maybe some hope!
Thing One : There are Ten Default Colors. They always show up in the SAME order and then repeat. (Color names, if you're curious, are according to Coolors)
- Columbia Blue
- Peachy Orange
- Green Tea
- Bubble Gum
- Pink Lace
- Catalina Blue
- Office Green
- Spanish Carmine
- Dark Magenta
Thing Two: Events will appear alphabetically.
This is my current demo calendar.
Now watch me add an Event called "Amber" - Color order shifts based on Alphabet.
So - how do we get consistency? We use numbers. Let's make Brown Street branch "Columbia Blue" and Main Street Branch "Peachy Orange." Edit the event and add a number.
Thing Three: Chances are good that unless you work somewhere that manufactures Easter Candy, these colors will not be consistent with your branding. We can help you get different colors installed. in order to do that, my Tech Support team needs you to:
- Open a ticket
- Someone on your team with with Server Access needs to be involved
- They need your "new" Ten colors in Hex Code form (for example, #990099 is Dark Magenta)
- The order you want them in
- If the font for each Tab should be black or white - In the Default, the first five tabs are black font, last four are white font, because those colors are so dark
OR: If you're able to add a file to your server, you can refer to this article : Changing Calendar Event Colors, which has instructions on adding the file with the color changes to your theme!
Pro Tip - Set it up first, to ensure you like it. This isn't super easy to change. (I did mine as a PTE Table)
No - We can't do more than ten colors.
Yes - Rackspace and Azure customers, we have to do it for you; I still need your colors and order.
