Smartsheet Calendar Column and Task Names color not aligning

edited 09/22/23 in Add Ons and Integrations

Hi there,

I'm currently pulling 4 separate grids into a single report to create a collision calendar. The calendar is color coded by sheet name. I recently added the 4th grid into the report and now the colors are not aligned. I created the custom colors by Sheet name previously but I cannot recall how to fix.

When I go to edit, I can only "color by sheet name"

    Hello @JBS27,

    There are two different ways to specify coloring in the Calendar App: by grouping (the column at the very left) and by tiles (the actual entries on the calendar). In the Settings for the calendar, custom coloring for the grouping occurs on the Map Columns page (page 3 of settings), while custom coloring for tiles occurs on the Time & Design page (page 5 of settings). If you want them to reflect the same coloring, make sure the settings for the coloring is the same on both pages for the same field.

    Please note, however, that if you are pulling your calendar from a report, you will only be able to customize the tile colors on the Time & Design page if the field you're choosing is a Dropdown List.
