Hello @Q Dao,

Welcome to Atlassian Community! It's nice to have you.

I believe you are referring to the current yellow highlight color on today's date, and not the colors for each event type. Is that correct? 


If so, it is not possible to customize that color. It would require you to modify the source code, which is not publically available for Confluence Team Calendars:

  • CONFSERVER-51182 Team Calendars source code not available on for licensed users

There was a request in the past to customize the colors using CSS, but it has been closed as we do not have plans to implement this in the near future:

  • CONFSERVER-49342 How can I customize colors and design of Team Calendar add-on?

Thank you for your understanding. Please let us know if you have any further questions about this.



Thank you so much @Shannon S , this is exactly what I was looking for!

You're welcome, @Q Dao. Apologies I wasn't able to provide a solution for you at this time.



The dull gray highlighting of the current day is USELESS.

At least box it?

Consider those with older eyes!

Hello @EdCNY,

Thank you so much for that feedback. I've raised it below as a feature request: 

Thanks again, and take care!

Is there still no solution to this?

Light grey is still the background of "Today" and it is still very difficult to even see it. Maybe a border, something like "border:#000 thin solid" around "Today" cell will be better?

I have a number of colleagues complaining about the very same issue. Would be awesome to just have an outline around the day, or to be able to customise the colour. As it stands now, it's useless.

Please resolve :) 


Has there been any movement on this? I can't find any other updates regarding this and it's an issue with my team as well.
