"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.

This doesn't actually work in the Windows 10 app on PC. Still sets Sunday as the "next week" date. It's been 2 years. Can we fix this?
Why is this defect taking so long to fix?
Simple feature why would this take years to complete? Guess I'll have to do away with another Microsoft product... Very odd why you would have Sunday the default when the majority of people have their workweek start on Monday...
Request you provide what everyone is consistently asking in these posts/comments - Please allow for the start of the working weekday to be set in 'preferences'
Please Note. The first request to resolve this issue was in Nov 2016.
This approach to 'fix' does not resolve or provide a solution to the problem. IOS and Android applications have limited ability to adapt to the first 'working' day.
Along with very short Snooze and constantly having to adjust 'next week' todo's to Monday is counterproductive and limits the consistent use of the application.
Please provide an update and correction - these apparent simple requests for basic usability improvements appear to deprioritized and have very long release cycles .
How is this being worked on? Do you really work on this convenience feature?
I feel like this feature would be standard. Microsoft you know people view calendars differently in various parts of the world. Being a new app to not have such a basic feature is disappointing.
So could we get an update on this? Seems to have been discussed for quite some time, is this really being worked on?
I really like the other "quick click" options (remind me later, due date > today / tomorrow, etc.), but this one is odd. I can't de/select include weekends or customize which day is the first of the week.

Allow OPTION to set "First day of week is:" = Sunday or = Monday. Or allow OPTIONAL setting any day as first day in week. Traditional work week is long gone. I used to work Wednesday - Monday. Also- allow OPTIONAL setting of which days are in the work week, as just stated.
On Win 10, changing the first day of the week to Monday messes up how calendars are shown elsewhere in the system. In the US we're used to seeing weekly calendars start with Sunday on the left, not Monday. So that settings change isn't broadly beneficial just to fix this long-standing annoying issue in To-Do. Clearly for most people, "Next week" means "Start of the working week", not strictly what the first day of the week is.

for macOS you can set the first day of the week to monday in system preferences (see Ian and Elizabeth's suggestions below)
How is this still a thing? I'm no coder, but Jeezus it's just changing a simple setting.

So on Windows 10, I have to change my system settings to modify one thing, in one app? This should be a setting in the app.
Outlook can do it.
We should be able to configure in To DO for Monday or one week from today.
Still working on it after 2 years? Come on!
Elizabeth's suggestion below works!
1. Right-click on the system clock in the toolbar >>> select Adjust Date/Time >>> click Change date and time formats >>> change day of week to Monday (or whatever day you prefer).
The change reflected in my To Do app, so now when I pick "next week" it goes to the next Monday.

@Marcel- Any updates on this? I like the idea of the quick shortcut to make a task due "next week," but making it due Sunday instead of Monday makes this feature useless to me.

You said that you guys are working on it two years ago.
Is it even on your own To-Do List?

Please fix it! It's so annoying having to have to change it to Monday for each new task.

What do you mean only iOS is affected? I can't set Monday as start of week on Android either.
