    Hi everyone,

    Thank you for providing a clear signal that we should improve how we highlight “Today” on the calendar.

    We are planning to make this update in Outlook for Office 365 subscribers. We will post a subsequent status update when this is available for you to use in Outlook.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. Please do keep making suggestions and voting on others’ suggestions to help us improve the product.

    Thanks,
    Jenn

    I'm seeing the new day highlight. A few requests:

    1. I notice that the horizontal line tracking the current time now updates when the window is not focused. Thank you for fixing that problem as well!

    2. I am not sure about that horizontal line stopping at the current day's column, though. I preferred the previous horizontal time line's appearance of going through the full week view.

    3. Is there a blog or something else that captures changes to Outlook and other Office products at the granularity level that this sort of thing would be included? If not, please consider adding such an update stream. Thanks!

    I believe this has been addressed in the most recent Outlook desktop builds. The horizontal line representing time seems to update even when the window is not focused. In the new build, you'll also see prominent vertical highlighting of the current date.

    That said, the new horizontal line reaches from the left of the week view to the current date only. It looks a bit awkward. I would prefer to see the line be the full width of the week view as it was in previous builds, but retain the continuous background updating.
