    I need to add a color scheme to a widget. I'm drawing a blank.... on top of the fact that I'm not good with colors in the first place.

    so we all know
    red = stop
    green = go

    what color, to you, represents 'scheduled'?

    It cannot be grey, blue, peach, red, yellow, or green (already used for other types).

    If I'm thinking in terms of a calendar or planning directive, usually matching the template of the app works pretty well. For example, my Outlook is set to blue, my calendar blocks are blue.

    If it's a notification for a meeting, yellow stands out pretty well.

    For me personally, orange is scheduled tech items on my calendar for work. It's been that way for me for 4 years, but everyone elses color scheme is different.
