Option to display weekends / non-work days in alternate color or even hide them in Outlook 2016
To be able to designate a different background color for weekend (non-work) days so that's it's much easier to visually differentiate work days from non work days. Or provide an option to hide the weekends or non working days in Microsoft Outlook 2016.
Or please allow for shading weekends on month at a glance mode. Also, it would be helpful to have calendar months highlighted in contrasting color so that months are easily distinguishable.
I wish I could have a different color or shading for Fri - Sun since I only work Mon - Thur. I can't believe in this day and age with all the technology we have resources for that Microsoft still doesn't offer the ability to change colors or add shading for weekends and/or days off.

Bump, very useful to be able to hide the weekends in month mode!!
Yes please! My weekends are my time - so I'd love to be able to differentiate them from my working week.
It's ridiculous that in Month view, 2/7 of the screen area is permanently wasted showing (for me) completely blank rectangles for Saturday and Sunday! If the weekend could be hidden, it would allow much more space for showing all my Mon-Fri business appointments.
It's 2020, and I still can't hide the weekend in Outlook Calendar. Please, for the love of days off, add this feature!
YES PLEASE! Need to color code my days, especially weekends.

Reverted back to Office 2013 Outlook - can now again differentiate between weekends and weekdays.

Ahhh - can't visualize work week for billing etc. because past weekends are not visually distinct from weekdays!
HOLY! Who on the Microsoft team thought that was a good idea??
Please color weekends of past weeks differently from weekdays - like is done with weekends of upcoming weeks.
When scheduling jobs I need to see Friday & the following Monday side by side. It shows Saturday & Sunday in between them, making it hard to see what they say because it's so bunched up. I don't use Saturday or Sunday at all when scheduling for the week so why can't I hide it?
Yes, please! These features are much needed:
- different background color for weekend (non-work)
- hide the weekends
- shading weekends on month at a glance
- contrasting colors so months are easily distinguishable

Change the colours of the days, so that for example Saturday and Sunday (my weekend) is distinguishable from the working week. or the option for the user to change the colour of any of the days as per their own working week.
Enable to hide or TURN OFF SATURDAY AND SUNDAY days from week and month view in outlook! Please bring back that option! Hide the weekends and show the following 5 or 7 working days instead, while skipping Saturday and Sunday. For outlook calendar. You may call it "on-going work week"

I want to change the color of the holiday background and characters
So much this. Today, work and personal lives are blended like never before, so our calendars are too. This would help people understand their calendars more easily and it seems like a simple feature to offer.
Calendrier - Ajout case à cocher "Jour ouvrable"
Calendar - Added checkbox "Business Day"
Horaire sur 9 jours, il serait nécessaire d’utiliser une case à cocher “Jour ouvrable” ave la récurrence quotidienne tous les 9 jours.
Schedule on 9 days, it would be necessary to use a checkbox "Working day" with the daily recurrence every 9 days.
I want a different background color for a work day that will show which office location I will be in that day.
I also work longer days on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and your setting are too archaic to structure my calendar that way. I'm trying to work with other people over here.
This feature exists, but ONLY...… under OPTIONS, GENERAL, OFFICE THEME when theme color selected is Dark Grey or BLACK.
terrible Microsoft, just terrible.
Yes. This would really help to differentiate weekdays from weekends!
