In Thunderbird calendar all appointments (events, tasks) show as blue. Please let me select a color, say from 6 or 8, so I can put different categories of my appointments in different colors. That would make it much more usable.

Thunderbird Calendar - add Category colors to the Today Pane view
On Thunderbird's calendar tab, the event entries are showing the color of the category I have assigned to them. However, when on the email tab and have the Today Pane turned on, the appointments are just showing the color that is assigned at the calendar itself and doesn't include the color of the category assigned to the individual events.
If this additional color-coding can be added, it would assist with at-a-glance seeing what kind of events are upcoming.
Thanks in advance for your consideration!
Well, yes, absolutely, Poodle is right: it would be great if the whole appointment block would change its color when clustering it into one of the defined categories. So far, we only get a vertical line with the chosen category color, whilst the rest of the square remains in the standard pre-defined calendar color. I guess this wouldn't be very difficult to do from the programming point of view, you could even add the option "Adding a colored bar" or "Color the whole appointment" (something like that).
Thanks a lot and congratulations on your terrific work, the world is a better place with you guys.
Categories with colors is long overdue for appointments in Thunderbird
I would like to be able to set the colors in the month view for today. so far this is probably only possible via the CSS file. This is not an elegant solution.
This would be a great improvement - either by being able to categorise Events into custom user-defined sets each with different colours like say, 'Work Appointment' [all coloured Red], 'Gig to Attend' [all coloured Yellow], 'Annual Leave' [all coloured Green], 'Travelling Time' [all coloured Blue] or even more simply just being able to assign each Event with its own display colour from a default list - Red, Yellow, Green, Blue etc. would really make the Calendar much easier to use from a visual presentation point of view.
