How to Add Week Numbers to your Outlook 2013 Calendar

Adding week numbers to your Outlook 2013 calendar is a groovy feature which everyone should use if they do any kind of project work. Here’s how to do it.

Adding week numbers to Outlook 2013 was actually the first thing I did after installing Office 2013 last week. I work with a lot of Europeans and they love to refer to week numbers during project so this is a must for any install of Office. For those of you not yet running Office 2013, this feature is also available in Office 2007 or Office 2010  so take a look at that old groovyPost to enable it.
