    I upgraded to an S7 and now the Palette icon for marking calendar entries with different colors is gone. All new entries are the same color. I want to be able to group entries by color again. Is that no longer a possibility? It really is much less helpful to know that this appointment was entered into the Samsung calendar than what type of appointment it is and how important that I not miss it.

    It's still there. Hold the little colored square on your entry (its next to the subject or name of the event) and you will get the color choices. I use colors all the time for different groups of events. You may have to edit each entry, as after I upgraded all defaulted to the same the color. I had to change each one, one by one. Hope this helps!

    In the stock Samsung Calendar app?
    How do you apply a color per entry? I only see an option to adjust the entire calendar via the app settings menu.
    I too would love to be able, again, to be able to set a color for different types of appointments and use colors to differentiate from My appointments vs my Wife's appointments and also for recurring events like Birthdays.

    The S7's stock Calendar is totally different from my S5 and lacking in several of the handy little tools like the ability to change individual entry colors and even had a small sticker selection available to add even one more little indicator to the entry to help differentiate things.
    I really miss the features in the stock S5 Calendar app vs the 'streamlined' S7 version.. Taking some of the features out of the app kinda was a let down when I was hoping for more refinement to the existing ones and potentially additional features that I didn't know I would find so useful until they were there. Instead they trimmed out the things that kept me using the Samsung Calendar vs Google's. (I may have to just go 3rd party 😨 for a more feature rich experience).

    Hmmm. I never paid it much attention until reading your post. Looked at my calendar app and I DO have the option to change the color of the title. Using stock calendar app. Attaching screenshots of the color option and the version of my calendar app, in case it's a version thing. I'm on US Cellular, in case the carrier has anything to do with what options are available.

    If I change the calendar (under the date / time in the screenshot above) from My Calendar to Gmail, then the option to change the entry is back.

    Unless I'm missing something, you guys are doing exactly what I described in my earlier post. Isn't that what you are looking for? I use the stock calendar and have different colors for different events. @Enverdaz thanks for the screen shot.. that is what I was trying to describe.
