Calendar out of office - shading

In my old version of the Outlook calendar , when I selected an appointment for a day (or multi day) as being "out of office" the day would be noticeably shaded purple and I could tell at a glance which days I would be out of the office that month.  In the new version of Outlook (I believe I have 2016), the shading is so light you can hardly see it.  

Is there some way to adjust the shading for "out of office" appointments so that I can see this more easily?  I am out of the office for work a lot and I am finding it infuriating that I can no longer quickly look at my calendar and see which days I am away. 

Thank you.
