Allow Monday to be first day of the week

In the datepicker Sunday is the first day of the week. It should be possible to at least change this to Monday. Having Sunday as first day is only causing confusing.

    Totally agree. We are using the filter condition "Unit to date" with the value "Week" a lot. This also starts on Sunday, but we would appreciate monitoring the current week starting on a Monday.

    Hi Marc and Joachim,

    Thank you for posting your request in our community.

    The start of week is currently determined by your locale setting for your account (Account/Settings/General).  The default locale setting is English (United States) and uses Sunday as the first day of the week.  A European locale, Germany for example, will result in Monday being used as the first day of the week.

    Here is an article that goes through the setting in a little more detail.  https://support.klipfolio.com/hc/en-us/articles/218143727-Locale-Setting

    For example (leaving the timezone to reflect your desired timezone - independent from locale) I grabbed a data source with a lot of dates, grouped on date, set the format to show day of week (EEEE)...

    With the Locale set to English (United States)

     

    With the Locale set to Germany:

    Hope this helps with your situation.  If not, please share some additional context.

    Cheers,

    Scott.

    Hello Scott

    I'm using "date picker" from the "user input control" function. When I change locale setting to Germany, it doesn't affect the order in the date picker.

    Hi Joachim,

    Thank you for redirecting me to the date input control.  That is an area we had identified for some additional attention in the future.  I will add this as additional input and associate your name so you can be notified when action is taken.

    Thanks again,

    Scott.
