Highlight the current date brighter than the pale yellow being used (for the visually impaired)
Redtail’s Product Owner has read the suggestion and there is some internal discussion needed in order to determine next steps.
This suggestion is remaining open and can continue to gather votes and comments!

Same problem... love the "Bold Print" idea!
Another suggestion. If you can't change the color of the background of the day of week because it would conflict with the color choices of a users tasks, appointments, etc. What about BOLDING the day of week and making the font size bigger so it stands out. For example, today is July 26th. When in calendar view the 26 would be bolded and bigger. Tomorrow is the 27th, then the 27 would be bolded and bigger. Thanks!
the pale yellow color for the day of the week is too light -- almost not visible. maybe make it gray???
Wonderful idea. I pass by the current date when on "monthly" all the time.

Yes... when you have several appointments on today's date, the shading is hard to see and I get lost looking at my own calendar (i.e. today's appointments vs tomorrow's). Having the shade color more prominent would be helpful!
Calendar day - background shading darker than the rest of the month

I use 2 screens so it would be nice if it showed boldly on both. As of now, it shows the pale yellow only on one screen.

Would it be possible to give us the ability to add shading to the calendar to highlight the weekends. It would give clarity to the monthly calendar.

You could give us a choice of colors so we could choose what color/how bright we want it!
I am not visually impaired and in the right light it is nearly impossible to detect the pale yellow that highlights the current date. It needs to be darker/bolder (not brighter) to contrast with the white calendar around it.
I have asked other people to tell me if it is highlighted. This is difficult for a one person office.

Currently the current date is a color on the monthly and weekly calendar that is extremely close to the other white colors for the rest of the days. Please give the ability to let RedTail users change the default current day color.
I never know what the date of the month is, whether it's the 10th, 11th, etc. When I look at your calendar, you highlight today's date with a yellow color that is so light you can hardly see it. Can you make it a bit stronger so we can quickly see what day of the month we are in?
