Relative Dates - Start Monday

Hi

 

I really need to know how to set my relative start dates to a Monday.  My regional settings are set to UK whch starts Monday, but whenever I add a date into my report and set a relative filter it always sets the start date to a Sunday.  Its drivng me mad as most of my reports require a correct relative date.  Can anyone asssit?  New to Power BI, and this is such a frustration. Many thanks

Hi!

I was confused by it as well, and I just found a way out. Check it out below:

Can you check your regional settings in Power BI (under file/options and settings/options) that your "Current file" and "Global" regional settings are correct?

Edit: Actually I just tried adding a relative date slicer for the last calendar week and I'm getting the same:

So it looks like this is a bug.

Hi

 

My regional settings are set the same as yours. I've got UK and first day is a Monday.  Even the server I use for the gateway has UK settings. Every report I create on any data wants to use Sunday as the first day? Thanks

Verify where the server is and use Locale to your Date Column

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

What are the regional settings of the machine where Power BI is installed?

Like I have "MONDAY" set at my end:

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Can you send me a screenshot for the relative filter where SUNDAY is the start day ?
