Crowded calendar giving you the blues?
Good! Next, toss in some reds and the greens!
You can automatically color calendar items by using Conditional Formatting. Like Categories, conditional formats provide you with a visual method of classifying your calendar items. Once setup these formats go to work automatically, on new and previously entered items. Just assign a color to the condition (aka, criteria) you set, and whammo!Technicolorsplendor!
