    Your support site talks about Recurring Items as "perfect for weekly meetings", yet on the calendar, we cannot give recurring items a Event Type/category. For that we must create an EVENT (which cannot recur).

    Its a bit frustrating and confusing to see the Legend say that "Club Meetings" are in Yellow, yet all club meetings are actually in Grey (general). Please add the Event Type field to the recurring events so we can have a type other than GENERAL for those items.

    YES!! I think I have sent in a recent suggestion on exactly the same topic, although not as well expressed.

    In the short term I have changed our site css to so that some of our calendar items match the legend below the calendar. Without modifying the events themselves I can only pick up recurrent vs non-recurrent events. Speaker: pink, non-recurrent: blue, recurrent: gold

    P.S. I know you probs have a timeline and a roadmap etc, etc but this is one item that should be easy to retrofit.
    You have the categories defined somewhere as they appear in the legend. You have the colours defined, as they appear in the legend.

    I would be happy if you just added an appropriate class to each item and let me do the colouring-in via css.


    #calendar .calendar-item-non-recurrent .fc-title {
    background-color: #D7ECFD;
    }

    #calendar .calendar-item-recurrent .fc-title {
    background-color: #FFD645;
    }

    Yes Bob, you are right. Calendar Items cannot select an event type. We have had feedback from Anita and a few others about adding an option to allow this. If/once we come out with this option we will let both of you know and post in this thread.

    Good job Anita for changing the CSS to make it look different and thank you for sharing the CSS code! It looks good on the calendar like this.

    Is there any update on this topic lately? I'd really like to be able to color-code our reoccurring events correctly.

    Also, would love the ability to edit the default event types.

    Thank you!
