[ngw] passing category colors to shared calendars

As I recall, there was a discussion about this during beta when that was first introduced.
I believe it was left to the recipient to make the color choice. I think one argument was that there was the possibility that the recipient might have already used a color that would conflict with using it on the shared calendar.
I suspect this is functions as designed.

Hi all,

Had a user post the following scenario to me this morning and would
like your thoughts....

Manager has created a personal shared calendar that he has shared with
all of his direct reports (appx a dozen)

He places personal appointments for staff meetings and such and then
color codes them based upon certain criteria.

He would like to find a way for the category color codes to show up on
the recipient's copy of the shared calendar.  

I tried recreating the same category/color codes on the recipient's
GroupWise client but that doesn't work.  They still show up as gray.  

Any ideas?
