HiCustomer, I'm Alfredo and I'll help you with your request.

Google Calendar

Google does not support automatic color coding out of the box, however it seems someone else had a very similar situation and created an extension that you might be able to use. How this extension works is that you need to have the Zip code on the subject of the appointment and it will assign the desired color.

Here is the download link for Google Chrome

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/selectable-calendar-color/ijnakmdnmiebbnjmcldnjnhnlbhfhcde

Outlook Calendar

Here is a little bit easier, and if you mix your google calendar with outlook you get the same result but only when viewing the calendar in outlook. Follow this steps (also found here), still the Zip code would need to be in the Subject field:

  1. Go to the calendar tab
  2. Select "View settings"
  3. In the Advanced View Settings: Calendar dialog, click Conditional Formatting button.
  4. In the following dialog, please click Add button to create a new rule. Type a name for the rule in the Name field. Choose a color for the rule in the Color drop-down list (here I choose the purple color). Then click Condition button.
  5. In the Filter dialog, please type the zip code(s) that you want to search for categorizing in the Search for the word(s) field. Then select subject field only from the In: drop-down list and click OK.
  6. Click OK as needed to close the dialogs.

  7. Done! Your old appointments which contain the word “training” are categorized with purple at once.

I hope this information is helpful for you and that it fixes your problem. Of course, you can always ask me anything else if needed or if you need further assistance I invite you to request a Premium Service for us to create a remote session and walk you through the solution.

If you are now satisfied with the answer and liked my assistance please 5-star rate my service in order for me to close the request. Great meeting you!

- Alfredo
