    Hi, Please bear with me - I'm new to both Android (5.1) and Motorola (G3). Nothing on this topic came up when I searched previous answers.

    I use the default Google calendar and entries sync perfectly from my desktop Outlook to the phone calendar. No entries go missing. I use Android-Sync for calendar, tasks and notes.

    HOWEVER, I use coloured categories on Outlook, which are very useful. The only Google Calendar colours differentiate between addresses (Google, Hotmail, Android-Sync which is the desktop Outlook) with no categories shown at all. Is the lack of calendars due to the Android-Sync app, Moto G3, Google Calendar?

    Your thoughts are appreciated.

    Outlook categories, to the best of my knowledge, aren't supported when syncing (it's an Outlook/MS Exchange limitation), so you'll only get different colors for different accounts. If you use Google Calendar to set up an appointment, however, you can assign a different color for the appointment. Now, since I don't use the Google app on my phone, I'm not sure if you can do it on mobile (I don't see why you shouldn't), but on the Google Calendar webpage you can. You can also set up a different calendar in Google in lieu of categories.

    Hm, thanks SpookDroid. Cloud calendaring isn't for me, but thanks for the info.
