Changing the Work Week in Teams

Heather Saur 21 Reputation points

Once you change the work week in Outlook, it does in fact show the work week days -- but the start day is still wrong. It starts on Monday, skips Friday and Saturday and shows Sunday at the end of the week. I work a Sunday-Thursday schedule, I don't want to see a Monday-Thursday schedule.

Nothing seems to answer this.

    Hi @Heather Saur

    In Microsoft Teams, the first day of the week is based on your app language settings.

    This is true but not useful because it does not address the OP problem in a complete way. Teams bases its availability views on your Outlook calendar options. If you want Teams to display a custom work week, go to Outlook 365 Desktop client, and navigate to:


    You can now make any adjustments to your work week that you like, including hours and days that . These changes are reflected through the whole Microsoft scheduling architecture, so everything will match. Teams, OWA, Bookings, everywhere. This is of course what you would want in an ecosystem This is a great example of Microsoft getting it right but not telling anyone!
