Central Management of Outlook Categories

I have recently been working with a client to create a resource booking system using Exchange 2007 and Outlook 2007.

Generally we had the functionality nailed, however, one part of the system was the use of Outlook Category colors to identify different types of appointment. The problem was, different users kept changing the colors!

So what to do? Well after a little research and talking to friends, Neil Hobson pointed me to CodeTwo CatMan.

“CodeTwo CatMan allows sharing of Outlook categories with other users on the local network and manage them in an easy way. Installing CodeTwo CatMan on machines on the local network and using a shared configuration file, one can very easily create a mechanism for centra- lized management of shared Outlook categories in the network”
