I find the SharePoint calendar options lacking a lot, but I'm hoping it's just a limitation of Foundation or maybe I'm just doing something wrong.

I've got a test calendar that looks like this: enter image description here

I like the color coding, but when I view one of the calendars being overlayed, the events are displayed in the default color: enter image description here

I think that if I could just change each calendar's default color to match the assigned color from the overlay view, it would go a long way to improving the experience.

What I Have Access To:

  • SharePoint Designer 2013
  • Admin Permissions

I'm not a programmer... though I'm not afraid to use some code. If I need to inject some code to make this work, please pleas please be specific as far as where I need to put it and how to access that place.

I read somewhere someone said to edit the view page and add a snippet, but I didn't understand what they meant. Can I edit the code of a view? Or where they talking about creating a whole new page and using an app part?

I appreciate any insight!

I've added an HTML Form Web Part and inserted my CSS according to this article:
