Setting to set "Monday first"

I've been looking in the forum and can't find any help. I can't believe I'm the first asking... 

How can I set on the Web app to show the calendar with Monday the first day of the week... it is an International Standard (ISO 8601).... so is any way to change it?

  • Hi Hackerock !

    There isn't an option to change the monthly layout in YNAB. In the calendar, dates run from Sunday-Saturday. We try to avoid toggle options when we can, but you can submit a Feature Request to let our development team know you'd like to see that option.

      Hackerock . . . that’s not how they decide what new features to incorporate. Granted I don’t know how they decide, but it’s definitely not based on what would be easy to do. . .

      jenmas I guess they don’t want only the US market.... half of the world has Monday first on their calendars... but it is their bussiness... it’s up to them... as well is up to them have happy costumers or not...  As well as very helpful community.... :-/

      Hackerock Agreed. Though I'm afraid there's nothing we can do as a very helpful community beyond helping you find a workaround and more importantly understand what reasonable expectations are based upon our history of experience with the company. That the company doesn't make the choices that seem logical or helpful isn't something community members can control.

  • We don't even use the metric system in the United States; what makes you think we're going to adopt International Standards for calendar?! 😅

      bevocat I prefer to start my week on Sunday. Starting a week on Monday seems like a bad idea. It's bad for the soul.

      nolesrule depends on your perspective. If you're an eternal pessimist, you might take comfort in the fact that the worst is over for the week.

      bevocat Actually, there are a whole lot of us who wake up happy on Monday morning.  We refer to ourselves as "retired."

      bevocat  Beautiful way of thinking in the 21st century, in a globalized world.  Is this an official support forum or are we in an open group where everyone trolls?

      bevocat Am I the only person in the world who genuinely loves Mondays?  My colleagues are sick of the 'chipper' Monday attitude but it sure beats starting the week out glum.

      Hackerock I don’t think it’s trolling, rather it is cautioning you to manage your expectations of what the company will do.

      Dude!  There are only 52 Mondays in a year. Embrace them. Enjoy them. There are only 29 left in this year.

      I'd rather be cheerful those 29 more times than grumpy on schedule.

  • I believe the YNAB toolkit allows you to choose the first day of the week. It's a browser extension for Chrome and Firefox (and maybe others)

    • HappyDance Oh wow, I'd never even noticed that - i just punch in the numbers and don't really look at the calendar. What a weird thing to get upset about though, of all the things that people get grumpy with YNAB for....

      I suppose if you've used the same calendar format your entire life, it becomes a little subliminal and you don't pay attention, but it would result in some funny goofs in my budget if Saturday moved to where Friday is in my calendar.  I'm too accustomed to seeing Sunday as the first day of the week in the calendar layout.

      HappyDance I agree. On some few sites/apps where the week begins on Monday I have to keep mindful that the last two days of the "so-called" week are the actual "week end."

      Putting it that way seems so logical.

      JoeDid 

      Our office had a series of rather embarrassing and costly mistakes as a result of someone in IT setting the calendars to the ISO standard and a Monday start when we did a major system upgrade (a few years back). It was changed back  to a Sunday start PDQ once it was discovered, and it's still a sensitive subject, so no one mentions it....ever.

    • HappyDance Yeah I need to take back everything I said - I just realised how much I lose my carrot every time I'm forced to use mm-dd-yyyy instead of dd-mm-yyyy - so I should be able to understand how the layout of a calendar would have the same impact.

  • Oh my, sometimes I really wonder about myself. Thanks HappyDance

    I'm in the start on Monday camp, because the weekend should be together. I didn't notice the Sunday start on this calendar probably because I'm searching for the date, not the day.

      You can change your calendar to a Monday start if you use the YNAB Toolkit.

     This must be another of those for'n phrases, as it doesn't ring a bell with me, but I get your point: I lose my carota when I have to pull up a specific episode on an Italian site and see the likes of 07/06/2019, wondering how it is that a July 6th episode has been posted, and where is the June 7th episode I need.

      JoeDid I had the same reaction to  Gold Rhythm when I saw the original post. I had to go searching for the calendar to start with and only then noticed it started on a Sunday. I normally just look for the number or type t for today. I naturally have calendars set to start on Monday but the whole start on Sunday thing is common enough that it doesn't throw me.

      American dates though are a total mindf*** . If I'm agreeing reporting dates with the States, I insist on writing the month after famously being 27 days late one time! They hadn't chased us though which gives you an indication how small their UK subsidiaries were. YNAB may not like options but thankfully we do get date format options.
