    Hi all -

    Excited to announce that invitees detected in any country except the US, Canada, and Latin American countries will see Monday as the start of the week when scheduling with you! We are looking into potentially making it a controllable setting, but for now, the display will be based on country auto-detection. If you have any questions please reach out to support@calendly.com

     

    Best,

    Amanda at Calendly

    Hi David,

    Thank you for submitting this idea! While I don’t have a target date on when we will offer to localize Calendly to have the week start on Mondays, I can share your suggestions with the team to discuss further.

    Best,
    Hannah at Calendly

    This will be very helpful especially since my own google calendar is set up with the week starting on Monday. My Calendly one starts on Sunday which makes it hard to compare it with the Google calendar.

    Starts Monday or Sunday

    According to international standard ISO 8601, Monday is the first day of the week. It is followed by TuesdayWednesdayThursdayFriday, and SaturdaySunday is the 7th and final day.

    Although this is the international standard, several countries, including the United StatesCanada, and Australia consider Sunday as the start of the week

    I agree with having the option to choose.

    Seems fair for everyone

    It will be great to have this option. I have had some misunderstandings with my clients because of this. In most of countries in Europe, the week starts on Monday, so actual interface is very odd and confusing.

    Please, change it as soon as possible!

    Thank you

    Most countries start the week on mondays. If we can have the choice it would avoid a lot on misunderstanding. Maybe the same way the time are showed depending on location, start of the week could adapt to location too

    Very odd in the UK to begin with Sunday. Would love the option to begin on Monday, please.

    A client accidentally booked the wrong date with me last week - mistaking the week beginning day. It really is quite important in the UK, and an oversight on Calendly's part. The option to start the week on a Monday would be a very much appreciated by me and by my clients.

    I'm a paying customer. This is incredibly annoying, and has already caused one scheduling problem with a client. Please bump this up the priority list.

    I'd also prefer having a week starting with a Monday - it's really puzzling and prone to have mistakes happening with a week starting on a Sunday. Even in Chinese Monday is "Day One - Xingqi yi"!

    Is there something new?

    I can’t believe that this amazing tool hasn’t have the option of chaching the starting of the day of the week. Unbelievable. Please, tell us something about this thicket.

    This is a big low-hanging fruit feature for you, guys. The only reason why I'm not using your product yet is because of the lack of this option. I assume I'm not the only one.

    Is this option available yet? It is confusing to force people to start the week on Sunday for an app that is used in the secular world.

    As per the official response at the top of this page, I asked Support about it and got this reply...

     

    Thanks for reaching out - my apologies for the inconvenience this causes.

    While I can't provide a specific timeline on a change on this front, I will pass this feedback along to our product team, as I know that they are specifically looking for more user feedback on this front!

    If you have any additional questions or concerns, feel free to reach out at any time. Happy to help any way I can!

     

    My response suggested that they don't need any more feedback! They have enough!

    I've found the Calendly support team excellent. I'm a big fan of their software and their service.

    I don't want that to go unnoticed! :-)

    But I'm wondering if the message is really getting through. So in the spirit of communication, I wonder if we'd have more luck if each of us contacted Support to give them a little nudge.

    A friendly reminder that there are many of us looking forward to their tackling this issue for us.

    We are still waiting for this option. When are you going to listen all the people (clients) who is begging for this feature?

    Please, we have been waiting for months.

    How is this feature guys?? There dozens of people asking for this and I don't think it requires lots of development work. It's creating a lot of confusions with my clients and I'm not willing to pay for something that creates misunderstanding. This is a CRUCIAL feature and if I don't get it I'd just cancel my membership.

    Hope you can give the priority that we ALL are asking you for.

    Thanks.

    Fully agree that this a cause of much confusion. Can anyone point to a competing product that has this essential option?

    Yo can start the week on monday, on Sunay, or even on the current day.
