At least a second dot for current time
In the calendar, I like the line going to the time and the large dot, but I keep looking at the previous day's meeting. Better would be a second large dot so that the current time/meeting is framed (maybe with an alpha blended line between them)

i would like to add to this request. Missing the current time line is misleading, leaving just a dot at the end of previous day (current week view). This really looks more like a bug than a feature, as noted in some other forum. At least give option to modify it, or just had and arrow (one from each side) or something, to put focus straight back to today.

I am another user who would like the thin blue horizontal line that showed the current time on the Day View. I could easily see which appointments were coming up graphically or where the other appointment were at in relation to the current time.
At least offer some options for how we would like to see the Current Time in the different Views.
In the week view, make (or at least give an option) for the current time marker to be on the current day. I thought my clock was set to the wrong day. If you put a marker on a paper calendar, you put it on today, not the day before today. Or you put an arrow pointing to it. A line at the time on the previous day is worse than no marker, because at a glance it is misleading. Eventually you can deduce that the current day is (say Tuesday by looking to the top of the column to see which is in bold and then looking down the side to see where the "time" line is. But I always though a good user interface was (a) obvious and (b) communicated unambiguously with as little information as possible. Thus, the current approach fails on both counts.
The design draws my attention to the previous day, as above. I don't like it. My team feel the same and it behaves differently in desktop vs web.
Please Name the feature, its not easy to find anything on it.
Outlook Calendar Current Time bar or new time indicator.
I am from SD and my users are also complaining about this, asking me to turn it off.
Change it back. Seems like a bug.

yes, better if the current time more clearly indicated rather than previous days
