Using colors can make appointments "pop" when viewing your schedule for the day, week or month. When you add or edit an appointment, the color field can be found at the bottom of the entry screen. It has a drop-down list of 20+ colors to pick from.
Colors can also be used in combination with Groups. This is a good way to remember what the colors are used for AND groups provides a way to filter your appointments by type or something you can search for when running a report.
When you pick a group and set a color, this program will remember this as a preference for next time. When you add another appointment and select the same group, it will remember the color you used last time and automatically pick the same color again, until you tell us otherwise by making an alternate selection.
