In org-agenda I am trying to change the start of my week to monday by adding this to my .emacs file:

(setq org-agenda-start-on-weekday 1)

Without success. The week (in the mini calendar, when I try to schedule a task) always starts with sunday).

Also M-x customize-variable [return] org-agenda-start-on-weekday and setting it to 1 didn't help.

What am I missing?


(why are you asking this on both StackExchange and Reddit?)

That's not the org-agenda, that's the calendar. Try

(setq calendar-week-start-day 1)

(btw, org-agenda-start-on-weekday is '1' by default)

  • I wasn't sure which platform is more responsive. Will stick to one from now on. - Thank you. – Ugur Jul 24 at 9:33

    They both come with zero guarantee of any response at all. StackExchange is better for questions, in my opinion, reddit is better for discussions. – rpluim Jul 24 at 11:15

If that doesn't help, you can use the below to set the start day to today for org-agenda.

(setq org-agenda-start-day (org-today))

    Excellent! Just the other day I wondered how I could do that. – Ugur Jul 29 at 8:56
