What does EOW stand for in business emails?

End of week

If you've ever been told to get something done "by Friday," you likely know that EOW stands for "end of week." More precisely, this deadline-inducing acronym means "by 5:00 PM on Friday" to most businesspeople and office workers, who are often asked to accomplish tasks before a work week ends.

EOW is related to the acronym EOD, which stands for "end of day." Both EOW and EOD are typically preceeded by a request, such as "Send me those TPS reports by" or "RB," outlining the task that must be accomplished before the work week or day ends.
