Support can't fix this... Week "53" is getting close fast, you can't just alianate basically all of europe from the android version of outlook.
It seems it's some sort of a localization issue. US and the rest of the world uses each different set of rules for calculating the first week in a year.
This is not an idea or suggestion. It is a bug report.
The calendar in the Outlook app for android devices shows the wrong week numbers in 2020 which affects 2021.
Original post from answers.microsoft.com:
I just realized my calendar in outlook for android is missing week 53 in 2020. The outlook android app considers week 53 in 2020 as week 1 in 2021 which is wrong.
Please check ISO 8601 - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601#Week_dates :
There are several mutually equivalent and compatible descriptions of week 01:
- the week with the year's first Thursday in it (the formal ISO definition),
- the week with 4 January in it,
- the first week with the majority (four or more) of its days in the starting year, and
- the week starting with the Monday in the period 29 December – 4 January.
It's pretty straight forward.
So the week numbers in 2021 will always be wrong. Week 7 is shown as week 8 in the app et cetera. This is a design flaw in the app.
