I'm testing out OR to migrate from another company. How do I specify the color of the listing sites when viewed in the calendar option 'Color by Listing Site'? Right now VRBO = Gray, AirBnB=Maroon, and MyVR = Burnt Orange. The Air/MyVR colors are too close for me to quickly discern and I'd like to contrast them better. I have searched but either I don't know the right term to look for or this info is not available. TIA.

I'm afraid at present, the colors are not configurable. We will likely redesign the calendar controls at some point, and add this capability among many others.

Would be great when this is available. I'm having the same issue - colors too close.

Me too, and I'd love to add "blocked" dates as another color, as those are usually maintenance and I don't have to worry about changeover. I'd like, "book direct" and each OTA, plus blocked dates as color options. Just my .02 worth as a vote to this option. thanks

User should be able to change the colors of each booking on OR. I use Fantastical on Mac which as been the best calendar app I've found. Easy to use and allows on to color each series of booked dates. Colors help a lot.

Agree with previous poster... ability to set listing site calendar color would be very helpful... AT THE VERY LEAST AS INTERIM FIX PLEASE CHANGE THE 'MY SITE" COLOR TO BE DIFFERENT FROM AIRBNB.

Suggestion to have blocked dates in different color also would be EXTREMELY helpful for a quick visual view of property patterns.... not sure if blocked dates show up now

I commented on this 2-1/2 years ago and I still think about it every time I look at the booking calendar but Ken says programatically it's not possible but I think anything can  be programmed...!

Not necessarily. If the original code does not allow color selection, it may not be possible without rebuilding the entire platform.
