Please highlight the day of the week in the calendar

I would like the day of the week to be highlighted across the column. I would also like the hour to have an indicator line going across this hour through the days of the week.

    I like the idea of the "Next 7 Days" calendar view. Though, I don't use it, because the view of all 7 days needs much space, so I am using the "Work Week" view instead.
    It would be very nice, if you could show the current day larger/highlight than the following 6 days. This would solve my problem.
    Even better: show "empty" days even slimmer. The available space can be used for the rest then.

    The day of the week definitely needs to be better highlighted within a weekly calendar view. This could be done in different ways such as 1) dimming the color saturation of days that are not today (so that today's meetings 'pop' relative to meetings on other days. 2) The little blue horizontal line that indicates what time it is shouldn't run across all days! It should only extend across the width of the current day. On several occasions I've tried to show up to meetings on the wrong day because that little blue horizontal line indicating the hour made me think I was about to be late to a meeting

    Instead of the day of the week being highlighted only at the top of each calendar, highlight entire column or highlight lines on each side of day...anything to make that day stand out all the way down the column. Preferably in the same color as the top of the calendar. I manage multiple calendars across the page, all day, every day, & it's difficult to see the exact day when viewing so many calendars at once.

    The day of the week and the hour should be visibly highlighted. I was using Google Calendar previously and the highlight there is pretty neat. You cannot miss what day it is on Google Calendar but Outlook Calendar, you have to look really hard to see what day it is. Please fix it.
