Here's how you can set the color on your calendar.

  • Currently, there are five color-codes available when viewing your appointments in your calendar.

Color by Employees

Color by Team

Color by Status

Color by Recurrence

Color by Paid/Unpaid

  • You can set the colors of your calendar on the following views:

Calendar View (month view, week view, and day view)

Dispatch View (horizontal view and vertical view)

  • When on Calendar or Dispatch scheduling view, just find and click the Colored by button located on the top right corner of the screen.
  • You may now select which type of color-code you want to see appear on your calendar.

Changing the colors and calendar's default coloring.

  • The very first time you use ZenMaid, the default coloring is set with Color by Employees.
  • You can change it by going into Settings > Calendar.
  • On the next page, under Calendar Options, expand the drop down list beneath the field Default Coloring.
  • Select which coloring you want it to be defaulted.
  • If you want to customize the colors for each set, just scroll down on the same page.
  • There will be three columns under the Advanced Settings section: Employees, Teams and Status.
  • Each item in the column will have a dedicated color options. Just click on the circle and select which color you'd like to apply.
  • Don't forget to hit the Save Changes button at the bottom and you're good to go!

Additional Notes:

  • Coloring your calendar is different from filtering your calendar. Coloring your calendar will just change the color appearance of the show-by-default appointments. Filtering your calendar will hide/show appointments on your calendar based on the filter you'll select/un-select.
