You are referring to the full calendar view. I am referring to the docked calendar view. There is no way to show dates in bold in the docked calendar view.

@armin: unfortunately, even in the latest version of Outlook 365, the bold calendar appointments feature in docked view is NOT available. Seeing that Microsoft has not brought back that feature in the last four versions of Outlook (i.e. 2013, 2016, 2019, 365), I doubt we'll see that feature return (or at least not for a very long time).....but who knows...anything's possible....
