You can currently customize the add new person form to add events.  

 

Please consider adding check boxes or combo boxes

 - to add the new person to various groups

 - to select the color for the new person.

 

Thanks

Note that, immediately upon OKing the Add New Person screen, the UI switches to the Edit Person screen in which the Quick Groups functionality is available. On OKing out of Edit Person, the newly added person is selected in the Main View in which the Quick Groups, full Groups and full Colour Code functionality is available. So moving the Quick Groups functionality and some similar Quick Colour functionality into the Add New Person window is not likely to provide a significant advantage, if any.

 

A Quick Colour function in the Main Views and Edit Person screen, operating similarly to Quick Groups, would be convenient and speedier than the current main menu.

Good point.  The Group button is on the edit person, but to access colors you need to go to the menu etc.  How about a combo box (like the one designating gender) that would show the current color and allow you to select an alternate right there?
