Office 365 Outlook Connector: Modify CreateEvent and UpdateEvent to include Categories

This is for the Office 365 Outlook Connector:

 

Versions 1 of the CreateEvent and UpdateEvent supported Categories. Later versions stopped supporting that.

We need that back! We want to be able to create calendar items that are associated with a category (for color 'coding').

 

Can you please re-introduce the categories element back in CreateEvent and UpdateEvent?

 

We how have to resort to Graph API, which poses all sorts of issues getting the Custom Connector approved, simply to add a Catagory to an Calendar Event!

 

Example;

 

PATCH https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/me/calendars/{Calendar ID}/events/{Event ID}

 

{
"Categories":["{{Categories}}"]
}

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I understand that GETTING the categories would require MailboxSettings.Read as well, but just having the opportunity to set them using a string will be awesome!
