"Next week" should be Monday not Sunday
When selecting "Next Week" on a task, it should be set to Monday of Next week and not Sunday. Or at least this behavior should be configurable.
On Windows, “Next week” in To Do picks up the system settings for next week which could be Sunday or Monday depending on how you’ve set it.
On Android, iOS, Mac and Web “Next week” in To Do starts on Monday.

@Terry Larsen Seems like it has changed on Android recently because now it is showing Sunday... although it has always been Monday before.
How can we change that? Is that configurable or linked to system settings?
you don't have this.
the work week is not the same as the week.
first day of the week is Sunday, first day of the work week is Monday ( for me ) - this is not supported
Fully agree with Maicon F. Santos:
"The first day of the week in the calendar and the default day for the “next week” are different things. "
Kindly treat this differently.
Admin Terry Larsen's response is not definitive.
Thank Alex Zwingli!! Settings worked, MS has too many hats to wear!

Are you working on it since 2018?
The first day of the week in the calendar and the default day for the “next week” are different things. Please do not take another two or three years to allow this possibility in the settings of the app.
Thank you dev team!
Thanks Alex Zwingli! I never would have thought to look in system settings. I agree this should be configurable on a per app basis as need of each user may be different depending on what (s)he is trying to accomplish in each app.

For those of you trying to figure out how this works on Windows 10, To Do uses your system settings. Change the first day of your week there to change the behavior in To Do.
Settings > Time & Region > Region > Change data formats > First day of week
To Do team, this would still be nice to configure within the app, just like dark/light settings can be manually configured or use the system settings. This is important. Just look at the votes and comments. If Microsoft wants to be the leader in areas like this, stop losing the easy battles to Google and others.
still working on it?

It still doesnt work - and its 3+ years on. This is basic stuff guys come on.

This should be as per settings because some countries have Sunday as first day of the week.

Oct 2020 and the issue still exist,

I can't believe this original post was from 2017 and it's still not customizable.

This "idea" started in April-2017 and Microsoft has been working on it since February-2018? It's TWO YEARS LATER and you haven't figured out how to sync the FDOW between Windows & mobile app? What is the delay??????
My MS To Do (Win10) acts stranger: some tasks suggest Sunday as "Next Week", and some tasks suggest Monday. Why? How?

Also agree with previous comments about pulling info from system setting. I'm used to seeing my calendars displayed with weeks beginning on Sunday, however, for tasks I would prefer to be able to set what is considered next week. If you do a search on this forum you will find quite a few duplicate requests for this same functionality as well.

I have to agree with @Adam on this one. Using the system setting is NOT the right way to do this. I don't want my calendar to start on Monday, I want it to start on Sunday as i have been looking at calendars like that my entire life. But in what world does your business reminder start on Sunday??? If you choose remind me next week, that should just be Monday. WHY on earth would it EVER be Sunday??? That makes no business sense.
Yes, I understand that you're trying to provide for the consumer, but even as a person in my own life, NOT at work, I STILL want NEXT WEEK to be Monday not Sunday.
Please make this setting independent of the System Settings as Adam mentioned. This would be the RIGHT way to do this.
This does not yet work on Windows 10 or iOS
Using the System setting is not how users prefer to see this implemented. Ignore system and make it an independent setting within ToDo. Please do it right.
