    I agree. It's a strange difference that you have "Category" in the SP Calendar, while you have "Categories" in Outlook. The only field you can sync between the two is "Categories", which you first have to add as column in SP, but which is a single line text field. While the Category field in SP can be a nice, color-coded (not many easy-selectable colors though) drop-down list of categories which, in a way, matches the selectable Categories in Outlook (where you have more colors to choose from). Matching is actually done on the category name you have assigned (on both sides), which is perfect and better than matching on color I think. But it's the problem that the wrong fields are synchronised! Please make the field names and their functionality the same, so that syncing works as it should!!
