Outlook calendar: set work hours for individual weekdays.

Options>Calendar>Work time>
Work hours start time & end time should be adjustable for the different weekdays not only the week as a whole.

(Monday 8-16, Tuesday 9-17, Wednesday 10.30-16.50 etc.)

        Would also help if you could consider allowing to set the times up to a routine shift pattern. Would help non-shift workers plan meetings with shift workers.

        Votes for "Option to customize daily work hours in Calendar in Microsoft Outlook 2016" should be added to this request, as it is the same

        If it helps get this idea implemented, this is an issue that impacts women more than men. It is an "employment equity" issue.

        This will help mothers continue to work part time when they have small children.

        (It will help fathers too, but up here in Canada and way off in Sweden, what seems to count for getting things done is whether it impacts women more than men. So I'm pointing out that this does.)

        We need this within our office, different days with different work hours. Lots of people I know work different hours on different days

        This shouldn't be that difficult. Allow the option in an "advanced" setting to the schedule or allow a user to mark their working hours on a simple grid rather than forcing everyone to play games with "out of office 'meetings'" or other complications that only serve to mislead and confuse.
