Colour coded calendar entries

First of all thanks for a great system with Podio, I am hoping that my Jukebox Restoration business can use it for managing the progress of sales and restorations but... I have a few questions. The first to bother you with is:

How can I get the podio calendar to show my app entries colour coded as they are in my Jobs app? At the moment the app colour codes the entries dependant on the type of Job (i.e. installation, service, collection etc) but that colour coding does not get represented in the calendar entry for the job, all of the entries are green. Can this be altered?

I am asking the same question. At the moment I use my desktop calendar which shows Enquiries and Bookings in 2 different colours. It would so helpful if this can be represented in Podio as well.

It's a simple thing. Can you do it Podio?

I need this feature as well. For me it would be enough already if I could alternate the colors between different apps.

We would love to have our item status colour flags show on the calendar view.

plus 1 for calendar colours for items. Be good if they could replicate the category colour of an item created.

Any developments on this? Do you get colour coding with an external calendar?

This would really make a difference and streamline staff utilisation! We could track which task belonged to which person - each person with their own colour.

I'd really love to see this as well. We have a number of marketing efforts in different categories and it'd be great to see them color-coded to avoid confusion. Being able to filter them by categories is great, but showing each in their respective color is important.

Yes, plus us! Our company would like this feature as well as the ability to choose what shows up in the Calendar. Like if we don't want tasks showing, but just the colour coded apps - that would be awesome! Thank you

+1 for color coding of apps/items included in a calendar .... ideally at the app level.

Any developments on this! Just created a content calendar app and would love to see the different colors of blog posts, videos, etc. Thanks!

This is a must have for our team. We have multiple marketing campaigns on our calendar and need to distinguish by color as each title is the same, but the type is different (i.e., Title = Costume Video Promo / Type = Social Media Post, Blog Post, Email Blast). Therefore all three entries on the calendar show "Costume Video Promo" in green and we can't distinguish between the types of campaigns. Please give us this option!!! Agreed that being able to filter by categories is a good option, but showing each in their respective color is vital so we can view our entire calendar at a glance. Thank you!!!

I vote for this, also - ideally you would be able to choose how the item gets coloured based on your app content types, but also have the ability to override it to set the colour manually.
