Maybe this seems rather odd for you. But I would like to avoid synchronizing e.g. color of category or priority when exchanging tasks between Outlook and MM. As I have my customized format for my map (e.g. no background colors for map items), the sync leads to different formats.

Any ideas?

Select all of the affected items after synchronisation using the Power Filter.

Then Right Click one of them > Format Topic > Map Theme >Default Theme

This should return them to your preferred state.

Hi Philipp, you can temporarily change the state like Andrew mentioned but if you resync, it'll go back to the category color in Outlook. It's a good suggestion to disable in the future. I'll put this in the product backlog for consideration.
