    I know how to edit a label for my calendar to change that the color
    signifies. Our firm uses a public calendar to which we all have access. I
    want to edit the label colors for the public calendar to assign a particular
    color to each individual so we can see at a glance what entry is for who. The
    edit label feature is grayed out. How can I obtain "permission" from Outlook
    to change the labels?

  2. Only a folder owner can make such changes. Ask the owner to grant you owner permission.

    We all technically own the calendar. Do I have to change the permission
    settings on each user's account?

  4. But does "we all technically own the calendar" mean that you have the actual Owner permission? I wouldn't assume that without looking at the Permission tab on the folder's Properties dialog.

    Since color label names are stored in the folder, changing them needs to be done only once.
