Modifying the first day of the week in PowerMetrics

In PowerMetrics, the default setting for the first day of the week is Monday. This is an account-wide setting that can be modified by your Account Administrator. It determines the first day when applying a weekly date range, either preset ("This week" or "Last week") or custom.

For dbt Semantic Layer metric users: We recommend you configure the “first day of week” setting in PowerMetrics to match the one used by your dbt Semantic Layer project. Otherwise, weekly periodicity data will not display as expected in PowerMetrics. If they don't match, edit your PowerMetrics setting as shown below. Note: PowerMetrics currently supports dbt Semantic Layer metrics that use Monday as the first day of week.
