The new feature, Microsoft Lists: Conditional formatting on calendar view, helps customize the calendar to meet specific requirements. Items in a list calendar view can be color coded based on conditions or rules specified on the fields available in the view. These rules can be managed using the ‘Format current view’ section of the Calendar view. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93360.
When this will happen
Standard release: The feature rollout will begin in mid-June and is expected to complete by end of June.
How this will affect your organization

- Add a new rule based on a field and select the color for corresponding items
- Modify, rearrange and delete existing rules
