Outlook: Add Week Numbers to Your Calendar

Some of us work with week numbers, something which doesn’t appear by default on calendars in Microsoft Outlook. The nice thing is that you do have the option of having these week numbers appear, both in the month view and in the Date Navigator. That means you no longer need to dig out the paper calendar and manually write in each week number for the whole year (what a pain!).

First, click on the ‘File’ tab on the ribbon. Choose ‘Options’. On the left-hand side of the Outlook Options window which will appear, choose ‘Calendar’. Now look under the ‘Display Options’ header and you’ll find a check box labelled ‘Show week numbers in the month view and in the Date Navigator’. Put a checkmark in that box and you’ll see the week numbers showing up on your calendar.

Removing the week numbers is as simple as repeating the above instructions, but clearing the checkbox.
