Color coding our scheduler

We would like to color code our schedule into high production times (surgical for our office) a 6 hour block with the remaining hours color coded to (NP, supportive procedures.  How would we go about doing this so we can see at a glance what time is available in our say surgical block on any given day.

Thank you

5. Press <A> to add a color group.
6. Enter the desired color group title in the field provided.

  3.  Switch to the Daybook view by selecting Default Daybook from the drop-down menu towards the top of the scheduler toolbar.
  4. Click Choose Color on the tool bar to select a color. ( using the color groups added in the previous steps )
  5. There are two ways to add colors to an operatory:

To color code one slot at a time, select the slot and click 
Mark on the tool bar or press <K> on the keyboard.

To color an entire operatory, select the first time slot on the operatory and click
