    Hi everybody,

    does anybody know, if there is a possibilty to filter events by outlook categories maybe by adding a new filter?

    Looking forward to you reply.

    There is not a way to filter by categories, but it may be possible to get a feed that only contains the events from a specific category.

    I’ve based most of the development of the plugin around features in Google Calendar, and I don’t think it supports categories (you just make separate calendars, which inherently have their own feeds). I do see that CATEGORIES is part of the iCalendar spec though, so I will look into adding this support in a future update.

    @diespeedy Would you be able to share the Outlook calendar feed URL you’re using, one that already has categorized events set up in it? You can email it to the support email address on the plugin’s admin page if you don’t want to post it here. Thanks!

    Thanks, I received it!

    Unfortunately, it’s as I feared… the category data is not actually in the feed. You may want to explore the Outlook settings, just to see if there are any options to customize what is included in the feed output.

    But as it is, there’s no way to filter by category within the plugin, because the plugin doesn’t get any of that data in the feed.

    Hi, yes it is as you expected. There are no more possisbilies to adjust the feed output. It`s already set to all details.

    Thanks for verifying and try to figure this out.
