Office.MailboxEnums.CategoryColor enum

Specifies the category color.

Remarks

[ API set: Mailbox 1.8 ]

Applicable Outlook mode: Compose or Read

Important: The actual color depends on how the Outlook client renders it. In this case, the colors noted on each preset apply to Outlook on Windows, on the web, and on Mac (starting in Version 16.78).

Earlier versions of Outlook on Mac had a bug that displayed incorrect preset colors. This has now been fixed starting in Version 16.78. If you've recently updated your Outlook client, you need to adjust the category colors in your add-in to match the updated preset values.

Office.context.mailbox.masterCategories.addAsync(masterCategoriesToAdd, function(asyncResult) {
  if (asyncResult.status === Office.AsyncResultStatus.Succeeded) {
    console.log("Successfully added categories to master list");
  } else {
    console.log("masterCategories.addAsync call failed with error: " + asyncResult.error.message);
  }
