    Default How to change Calendar event color?

    The S4 correctly displays my existing calendar entries with the event colors I've set for them (I've set the colors in the Google Calendar web app).

    However, I can't find a way to edit this color from the S4 Calendar app. Does anyone know if there's a way to do that?

    Cannot be done. Very annoying!

    As far as I know this cannot be done through your phone, however, there is a way to change the colors through Google which will then change them in your phone. Go into your Google Calendar from a computer (phone browser may work too but I haven't tried) and edit the calendar color. The color your phone uses is basically taken from your Google Calendar colors. I've found that using Google's 24 colors works better than creating your own custom color. I have 6 different calendars, which all had custom colors. My primary calendar was a customized bright yellow, which my S4 was displaying as orange. Orange happens to be the color of one of my other calendars so I kept mixing them up. Once you change all of your Google colors to one of the standard 24 colors, just hit "Sync" from your phone calendar and they should update and match up better. Hope that helps!

    I'm not sure what gadget22's advice was actually supposed to accomplish (back in July), but I believe the intention might have been to go to the Calendar app, tap the Menu button, then Calendars, then Edit, then Add. But again, I'm not sure if this was the actual intent, or how it would relate to the original question that was asked.
