Changing the Calendar for External Requests to Sunday Start

In my account settings, I have under Date and week setting that the first day of the week for guest users should be Sunday. However, on the external version of our request forms, the calendar shows as a Monday start, which is confusing for my users. Is there a way to change this?

Hi Rachel, thanks for reaching out 🙂 If you don't mind, please provide more info so I can help you. Can you please explain in more detail: by date and week setting for guest users, did you create a separate work schedule and included the guest users in this work schedule? Are these guest users Collaborators? Also, who submits the external Request Forms - the same users that are included in the work schedule where the week starts on Sunday? 

Waiting for your reply 🙌

Hi Lisa,

Most of the people who will use the form will not be Collaborators - they will be coming through the external publicly available link. When I'm signed in, the form shows a Sunday start calendar when choosing a date, but when I access the form through the external link, the calendar shows a Monday start.

Under Account Management>Settings>Date and Week Settings, we have "First day of the week for Guest users" set to Sunday. I assumed that would mean when there is a date field in an external form, the calendar would start on Sunday but that is not the case.

Hopefully this makes sense.

Thanks!

Hi Rachel, thank you for providing details 🙂 

Settings for Guest Users in Wrike apply for people outside who don't have an account in Wrike and who are invited to an account via email to Review and Approve files. These settings do not apply to non-invited people who submit External Request Forms via public links. 

Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Ok, thank you for clarifiying. So is there a way to change settings for non-invited people?

Our users are entering incorrect dates rather frequently due to this issue. Is this a bug fix that is coming soon?

We have the same problem, we have set the beginning of the week to Sunday but the guest users filling out forms are given a display of a calendar with Monday as the first day of the week.

Same problem. On our request forms where have a calendar to pick a start or end date, the built-in calendars default to Mon-Fri with Sat Sun at end: MTWTFSS. How can we change this so the week starts on a Sunday? SMTWTFS

Hello George Evano, currently, the date-picker Calendars in External Request Forms use Monday as the first day of the week, regardless of your account settings.

I see that you're in touch with our Support team in relation to this question. Please let me know if I can help with anything else 🙋🏻‍♀️
