A great way to keep your calendar events organized is to assign each person (in your family, group, etc.) a unique color. We recommend creating multiple calendars within a single Google or Microsoft account. Each of those calendars can be added to DAKboard and then assigned a color.
To see what these colors will look like on the various different Calendar Layouts we offer at DAKboard, check out our article Calendar Layouts and Settings, which shows you how this will appear in each Layout.
Microsoft and Google Setup
Both Google and Microsoft direct authorized calendars with DAKboard will share the calendar colors. This means that the color you set in Google or Microsoft will automatically display in DAKboard without needing to make any other changes.
