If you take a look at your Dubsado Calendar Page, (where you can see all of your appointments if you have your external calendar synced to Dubsado in your settings.) You’ll quickly notice that the appointments are color coded. This is really helpful to understand, but I couldn’t find this information ANYWHERE! In fact, I found it on Sarah Leigh-Day’s Blog. I wanted to share it here. First of all, so I don’t have to go find it again, but I know that I’m not the ONLY one wondering what those colors mean! I know you also have another question, so I’ll answer it right now.
Can I Choose the Colors?
If you’re wondering if you can change the colors or choose your own colors, I’ll save you the time of looking it up. Unfortunately, unlike some other scheduling apps, you can’t choose the colors. I know bummer! Maybe they’ll add that some day. I know I’d love some teal on my calendar. 😀
What do You Mean About the Colors?
In case you haven’t noticed the colors, I added a screen grab from my account. As you can see much of the calendar appointmments are yellow because they were booked outside of Dubsado. (I’ve been working on time blocking so some days there are a lot… it’s been kind of hit or miss, but that’s a story for another date.) If you have any time blocking tips, feel free to share those in the comments. It’s a struggle for me.
Color Key for the Dubsado Calendar
💙 Blue – Jobs (projects with a status on the “Jobs side” of the Projects dashboard.)
🖤 Black – Leads (projects with a status on the “Leads side” of the Projects dashboard.)
💚 Green – Appointments (booked through a Dubsado scheduler template.)
💜 Purple – Tasks with Due Dates (this does not include ToDo tasks assigned by workflows unless you manually add a due date to those tasks.
💛 Yellow – Your Synced Calendar (appointments booked outside of your Dubsado.)
❤️ Red – Scheduled Payments Due (based on the due dates in any open invoices.)
