"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.
2 flippin' years this as been on the radar and its still not fixed? Yes, it seems like a small thing - but the extra clicks and time when you're adding many tasks a day really adds up.
I'm glad this works for Windows 10, but I shouldn't have to change the date format for my entire machine so that "Monday" is considered the first day of the week for a single app.

Please, please implement this on Android and all the other platforms. Where I live (Germany) Sunday is a useless day to schedule to-do items because *nowhere* is open for business. Monday is when the week starts, so the existing option is dead weight to anyone living here at least.

Really needed. It is so obvious!
My week stars from Monday, not from Wednesday, Friday...

This is a Wunderlist feature. It's said you have been working on it since 2018, shutting down Wunderlist next month, yet don't have this feature yet....
Mark Nolan commented
Yes - this is needed, and should be set within the app itself (and synced w/ Windows app)

Any news on this? This is quite a simple feature but has such a big impact on user's convenience.
I agree with Allen and for the same reasons. Separate it from the OS setting, though it should obviously default to that.
This needs to be separate from the system setting. I should be able to "Use System Setting" or choose the first day of the week independently. I use this for work, but I don't work on Sunday's. However, I prefer my calendar to show Sunday as the first day of the week. I should be able to easily push tasks to Monday, as well as use my preferred calendar view.
Possibility to change first day of the week is absolutely necessary option. Its missing in Android app.
This does not work on Windows 10
This should be picked up from the user calendar configuration in Office 365
I have version 2.3.1910.15003 on win 10 1903 and next week is still Sunday.
Any news on this?

I think I found the answer!! Right click on the 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.
I have all my systems set to Monday as the first day of the week. It seems to work in Windows 10 (where I use the app rarely), but not in Android (where I use the app every day, and every day am annoyed). I see notes from MS spokespersons that say this is a priority - but they're all from the beginning of this year, nothing in the last six months. I have four to-do apps currently running on Android (I'm deciding which I'll use long-term), and only this one doesn't have the setting for choosing the first day of your week.
You could look for the code to handle this option in open source apps - draw on MS's relationship with Github!
This needs to be configurable in the To Do app settings, not by changing the first day of the week in Windows settings for the whole system. Pushing a task to "next week" doesn't have to mean the *first day* of next week. It just means next week. Maybe you'd rather it be midweek, or whatever. This is why the default "next week" in Todoist is next Wednesday. But in Todoist you can change it.

What wasn't obvious is that the configuration is a system setting, not an app setting. What wasn't obvious is that you were referring to a system setting. On Windows 10 to find it look under Settings > Date & Time Settings > Date, time & regional formatting (right sidebar under "Related settings" heading) > Change data formats (under "Regional format data" heading), then you get this screen where you can set it. Now when I set a to do to remind me next week, it reminds me on Monday, not Sunday.
Might be worth considering how to guide users to change this setting on the various platforms. In many corporate business scenarios a Monday morning start is a reasonable use case.

My week DOES start with Sunday. So I support start day being configurable. As in outlook calendar....
Richard Stephenson commented
@Marcel, it still sets to Sunday on Windows 10. I'm on build 2.1.1909.19002
Bevan Cox commented
This definitely needs to be configurable. I can change the start of week to Monday on my Mac and iPhone but it doesn't affect Microsoft To Do.
