How to change the first day of the week in my calendar


You can easily change your Calendar View or Widget to show the first day of the work week to be either Sunday or Monday. Read on below to learn how! 📆


Individual user settings

Individual users on the account can set their work week via their profile section, which will change the appearance of their calendar by showing either Sunday or Monday as the first day.

First, click on your profile picture on the top right-hand corner of your screen and click on "My Profile" as below:

Account settings

As an admin of the account, you can determine the first day of the work week on an account level, which will impact the functionality of the Date column, Timeline column, Calendar widget and Workload widget

To access the administration settings, click on your profile icon in the top right-hand corner of your page and select "Administration" as below:Group 30 (2).png

The change will indicate which day is to be considered the first day of the week, and will apply for your monday.com account. You can now open your calendar on the Date Column, Timeline or Calendar View or Widget and see your week reflecting those changes.
