We need the ability to change color of banner on monthly calendar once it has been chosen and needs to be different or if it was not selected at the time of scheduling.There is an option to choose a color to print an event on the Monthly Calendar in the original scheduling process and on the events screen. However, if you forget to select it when initially scheduling an event, or want to change the color at a different date, there is no easy way to do so. Is it possible to add it to the processes? Every ministry we have is color-coded. It takes a lot of time to change the color for each event if they are booked for a week or longer and are using almost all or several of our facilities. It would be a great big help to have this as part of the altering process, otherwise it is very time-consuming, sometimes having to delete events for years ahead to reschedule and thereby capture the color change. Please consider this as a necessary option in the altering process. Thank you.

Hi Virginia.  This feature is already available in the program.  Look in the lower right corner of the Information > Events > Event Calendars screen.  The setting is  called Print on Monthly Calendars.  Click the pull-down list and you'll see the color choices that are available.

That option is only efficient for simple events. If there is an event, and we have many throughout the year, with ten facilities booked for five days in a row, and a color needs changed then it takes quite of bit of time to click on each facility and add or change the color. I would think that simply changing the group color would apply to the sub spaces, but that has not been the case so far. If an event like I described is booked for several years, which we schedule at least five years out, it can take quite awhile to rectify the situation so that everything is in agreement. I believe that having the option through the altering process would make life much more efficient. Is there any way an enhancement can be added to make this process easier and time effective?
