Provide a Bold line between months in Microsoft Outlook 2016 Calendar.
In the Month view in Outlook 2016's calendar, provide a heavy border line separating the end of one month, and the beginning of another. Just bold font of the new month's day one label isn't easy to see. A rather heavy, solid line underneath the previous month, and then vertically between the last day of the previous month and the first day of the new month to mark the border between the two.
Totaly agree with everyone !
To change a minimum the presentation, the layout can be something like this :
Please separate the months somehow. Maybe with a blank row or even let each month have a different color background. Right now it is hard to quickly see where one month ends and the next begins.
Lines in outlook calendar way too light. Why make product worse.
Great idea. I proposed using different background colors for alternating months to highlight when the month changes over as you are scrolling.

Excellent idea. Let's see it MS decides to listen. You all know we had a comprehensive update to Windows 10 a couple days ago. Nothing close to this request, nor the color palette of Outlook.
I like the bold line idea, a thick bold line, 6 pts, maybe 9 pts.
Or do the line long dash/short dash/long dash/short dash.
Also do a bold box around today's date.
Or do today's date and the current month in reverse video.

Your frustration is felt by many. However, the "many" go unnoticed since they may not have access to this (or did not know how). I have reached out to this forum to seek an alternative to Outlook (I like the ability to organize files), Calendar is decent. Utilization is less than satisfactory. The color palette with Microsoft Office 2007 was perfect...we should have the option to choose a more vibrant color palette.

Excellent idea. Not critical, but a nice improvement

Or allow an option to only show the current month (e.g. hide the next month completely).
Others have asked for a bold line, but I would prefer a full carriage return at the end of a month and the nexst month starts on next line, but can keep same indentation.
It is very hard to tell where on calendar I am looking when there is six+ weeks on screen. Thanks
