Steps to reproduce:

In Lightning's Month and Multiweek views, week numbers are displayed on the left side of the header of the leftmost day. Unfortunately, the right side of those day headers also contains a number (day of the month). I.e., it looks something like this:

14 5| 6| 7| 8| ...

Actual results:

Both numbers are unprefixed which makes it very easy to confuse them for another, the only difference between them is that the week number is displayed in a lighter gray.

Expected results:

Please make it harder to confuse the numbers. Elsewhere in the UI, week numbers are already prefixed with "CW", so I think that would make most sense here too.
To pick up my example from above, a display like this would help me a lot:

CW14 5| 6| 7| 8| ...

Component: General → Calendar Frontend

Yes, or just Week

Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Priority: -- → P2

Of course, it's quite a hack to have the week number in that place to begin with. That's not how calendars usually (or ever?) display them. It should be closer to attachment 8485517 [details].

May end up as a dupe of bug 1715600.

Let's morph this to be about having a separate week column instead, like almost all other calendars do.

Summary: Week number display in Month/Multiweek views is confusing → Week number display in Month/Multiweek views is confusing - should have separate week column

I can add the column after bug 1738689
