ISO 8601 standard week number option
Based on the ISO week number standard (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISOweekdate), the ISO 8601 definition for week 01 is the week with the first Thursday of the Gregorian year (i.e. of January) in it. So I would expect 2021 week 1 to start on January 4, 2021. Instead it shows that 2021 week 1 starts on Dec 28, 2020.
I believe the Mac version of Outlook needs the option (First week of year: "First 4-day week") that is present in the Windows version, so that we can set it to conform to the ISO definition. https://superuser.com/questions/1246132/wrong-week-number-in-outlook

We would like to have the option to edit the working week from Sunday to Saturday to Monday to Friday in Outlook for Mac
It seems like Mac Outlook uses the system calendar settings. Depending on you locale/region you might have the non-ISO logic by default.
To fix it, go to System Preferences –> Language & Region –> Calendar –> change to ISO 8601.
It would be great if the Outlook settings contained a link or text pointing to the right place in System Preferences, instead of looking like it's just missing the equivalent Windows settings.

This seriously hasn't been fixed yet?! C'Mon Microsoft, get moving on this. It's really annoying in my org where Mac and Windows based machines are used and Outlook is our platform!
This is a bug, not a feature. Please address this ASAP
That's an industry standard. Outlook is not supposed to be a toy but a professional tool.

Feature parity is critical for orgs that have Windows/Mac throughout their user base like ours.
This is driving me mad! Fix this simple issue!
this is completely crazy that it is not fixed yet :(
This should not be considered as a feature request, this should be considered as a bug, and Microsoft should provide a fix.
how has this not been fixed yet?
