But, my opinion has changed.
Check out this list of 8 useful Google Calendar hacks.I've started color coordinating some of my events. For example: recurring chunks of time that I want to devote to my education. I've decided to try and spend a bit of my time every Friday to research Salesforce updates and contribute to the community.
In the past, I've found modifying the color of an event to be rather cumbersome. I usually don't go into full event edit mode to create an event. I use the 'Quick Add' functionality... and it frustrated me that I couldn't modify the event color from there.
I was apparently wrong. It is possible. Yay!
- You can use Quick Add (click on the dropdown arrow next to the 'Create' button and type your event description, date, time).
- Click on the body of the event that has been added to your calendar (clicking on the event title takes you to the full edit page for the event).
- There's a color dropdown to the left of the event name. Choose one from the list.
