Outlook Color Categories

Microsoft introduced Categoy Colors for the Outlook Calendar many years ago. They are very handy for marking your schedule to denote important events, daily tasks, and personal items.

Color Category support on your Phone

  • Outlook App: iOS version has "tags" but not categories.
  • Google App: Has colors but they are not tied to Categories. Google Colors cannot be synchronized from Outlook
  • Android Calendar: Has colors but they are not tied to Categories. Sync to Google. Google Colors cannot be synchronized to Outlook
  • iPhone Calendar: Appointments do not have colors or categories.
  • DejaOffice App: DejaOffice is the only mobile App that fully supports Outlook Calendar Colors with Android and iPhone.

The Solution is the DejaOffice App

DejaOffice is a free App you can download from the App store.

We wrote the DejaOffice App to work like Outlook on your PC.

DejaOffice fully supports Outlook Category names and Calendar colors, even with POP and IMAP folders. If you set the calendar color on your phone, then it will be set on your PC, even for Outlook versions that don't support it.

DejaOffice features secure direct sync from your PC to your phone using CompanionLink for Outlook. You can sync using USB, Wi-Fi or DejaCloud.

I've been using Companion Link for a very long time; So long I can't remember how long. I find your company's customer service to be far above any other company's efforts. That is something to be very proud of. I know that I will get a return phone call or email and the best efforts of the person I'm speaking to. Renee's follow up email is a perfect example.
Excellent!

When my laptop's hard drive failed, it took a month to get a new laptop because of the backlog of laptop orders for on-line classes during the pandemic. Fortunately with my CLO synced iPhone, I could function with my contacts, calendar, and task list. When the new laptop arrived, I found out that my Outlook file in my File History was corrupt, and the newest version I could recover was 5 months old. But with the help of Thomas M., I was able to sync my iPhone to it, fully recovering my contacts, appointments, and task list. Glad to have CompanionLink with the friendly, dedicated help of Thomas M.!

I purchased an upgrade for my CompanionLink for Outlook today and just couldn't get it to work. After calling Tech Support, Renee was on the other end, and very kindly and patiently walked me through a series of checks and settings and got me up and running. She was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

Renee is the best.... Customer support reps don't get any better in any firm. She was so incredibly patient with working through a very difficult issue that I had. The entire time it seemed like she was sitting next to me reading my screen with me and working through instructions. So kind and so patient. I very much appreciated that, unlike other reps, she used the same specific terminology to make it easy for me to understand her directions.

The CL tech support is excellent despite being 19 hours behind, email responses take a little bit longer! Renee has been very detailed and provided numerous easy to understand emails over a period of nearly 3 weeks. Trying to sync a new laptop & phone plus my tablet was all too much for me so finally phone help was needed and provided. She was very clear and friendly with a good sense of humour. Thanks Renee.
How refreshing in this day age!

I having been using Companion Link for 5 years and can not say enough about the response and support i have received from their team. i just replaced my dead computer and went from Out 10 to 365 and not being technically advance was fumbling with getting CL up and running. Renee was an absolute God send. She understood the problem right away, sent me a detailed email with instructions, and requested i follow up my result to her. she stuck by me all the way until every last glitch was corrected. My Android is syncing as before. She gets 10 stars in my book and a virtual XO!! Hank S

I've been with CompanionLink software from early on, back before Smart Phones were smart.

On every upgrade to my PC or Laptop Computer, CompanionLink Technical Support has been there for me to guide me through the new Outlook setup features. MS Outlook seems to improve in complexity and complications on every release. The Support Staff are the best in helping with the new system syncs.

Thanks CompanionLink
