Color-coding Exchange Calendar Categories

For example, I need to add the category named “Blue categorie” to Virto calendar.
Open “Advanced settings” of Exchange calendar data source, select “Category” field and click “Add new field value and color”.
Then type in the name of required category from Exchange (names must be identical).
Select a color for this category, it may match exactly the color from Exchange.
