Syncing ACT Calendar to Outlook - Colour assigned does not transfer

[ Edited ]

When assigning a colour in the ACT calendar, it does not transfer when the calendar is synced to Outlook and vise-versa.  Using ACT 2013.  Is there a way to accomplish this?  For example when I book a meeting I set the colour to green, conference call to red etc.   I've also set the 'Categories" in Outlook to reflect the same.  Thank you!

I guess one reason is that, in Outlook, Categories can apply to contacts, Activities, emails, etc ...they're far to general and used in different ways by different users. There's no standard that ACT! could assume and accommodate
