Calendar colors can be used to color code tasks assigned to certain users, or tasks that have key words in the title.
Calendar colors will show in the Month and Week view calendars. You can click 'Filters', in the top right of the calendar to see what the colors correspond with.
Create a calendar color
To make a new calendar color, go to the Month or Week view > Filters > Customize Calendar Colors.
Or go to the Gear icon > Settings > Calendar.
To create a new calendar color click 'Assign a Color'.
You'll then get a prompt like this:
You can apply the color to a certain user, by selecting from the first drop down 'When Assigned'. Then in the second drop down, you can select the user.
To apply the color to a certain word in the visit title, select "When Visit Title" from the drop down menu. In the box below you can enter the word or phrase you'd like the color associated with.
The visit title is the title given to visits on the calendar. You can edit the template for visit titles by going to the Gear Icon > Settings > Work Settings. For example you can make the client's city or their postal code show in the template, so it displays in the calendar.
To edit a calendar color after you have made it, click on it and an edit box will pop up.
The colors are dominant bottom to top. You can drag colors into the order you want them using the 'drag' button beside a color. If a visit was assigned to two users with colors assigned to them, then in the calendar it will appear in the color assigned to the user closest to the bottom of the list.
