How can we improve Microsoft To-Do?

"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.

        Hi Microsoft team, the original post is already few months old, it cannot be so complicated to change first day of the week to Monday or to add an option in settings to change that! Come on! I have to make few additional clicks every sigle time moving task to next week, this is very annoying!

        Use Outlook Calendar setting for first day of week to set this.

        It should be one week from the day you actually change the task date. If today is Monday then it should make it Monday next week, etc...

        Week start setting: Monday or Sunday

        And according to this setting, whem you select the dates manually in the calendar view, the start should be Mon/Sun as set. Thanks

        I don't want this to be the system start of week day, I would rather it is customizable for this app. It is 'put this task in the list when I am planning next week' which frankly could be Tuesday even if my week starts on Sunday

        Changing your OS's regional setting to first day of week is Monday is not an acceptable fix, IMO, because that also changes calendar views (when I'm accustomed to seeing Sunday as the first column in week/month views) and may mess up some other app's behavior as well. And, in principal, why should I have to change a universal setting on my whole computer for the benefit of one app? Simply having "next week" as custom setting would accommodate any situation or preference. (First day of week should just follow OS setting for consistency.)

        "Next week" should actually follow the same behavior as tasks in Outlook (next week is Friday)

        it should be Sunday too because Sunday is first day of the week in our region. So better to have this as an option and user can set the first day of the week.

        This does work in Windows 10! But you need search for Regional Settings and make the change for Windows 10. The app uses the OS setting.

        Sunday is still part of the weekend. Most people's workweek starts on Monday. So it is more consistent if the week starts on Monday too.

        The first day of the week is Sunday, not Monday. I hope if this idea is implemented, it's not the default setting.

        Absolutely! We need the next day up to plan for by the evening hours of the night before. I'm a teacher and my to-do plan has to be made and ready to run before my feet hit the floor first thing in the morning.

        Next Week should be on Monday, or provide an option for it.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Totally disagree - next week should always start on Sunday.
        Sounds like this needs to be an option for selection.

        I vote for Monday (but configurable). People can disagree about what the first day of the week is, but for me the issue is "When do I want to get to work on it?" For me, that means Monday.
