Is it possible to change the calendar on AirBnB to show the week starting with Monday rather than Sunday?
Hi @Adam231. I don't know why you would want that change, but your best bet for making a suggestion such as this is to post in Host Voice. If enough hosts agree with your suggestion, then the idea is sent to the Air BNB team. This is a host forum for solving problems and/or providing support to hosts. Good luck
Well, yes, except for Jews and Muslims, and those are many countries. But in the Western world, yes.
The USA LOVES to be different, with its very own temperature scale nobody uses. By writing their very own version of English no other country uses. By measuring with human body parts as in the time we lived in caves. With its very own calendar format, putting the month before the day. WHAT??!! Going up one flight of stairs brings you to the first floor, but not in the USA, where it brings you to the second floor.
It's the mentality, and I am generalising, but many USA'ers (Mexicans and Brazilians are also Americans, as America is a continent and not a country) think the world lives with the USA and revolves around the USA, instead of realising the USA is just one of the many countries on our planet.
Hi Linda, seeing a calendar starting on Sunday outside of the United States is the same for us as seeing a calendar starting on Monday in the United States is for you. It is odd. There has to be an option. Having it just one way is lets say... not smart.
I FOUND THE SOLUTION for browsers, and for English speakers.
While on your hosting account (not in the travelers account), click on your profile picture in the top right corner, then click on the 5th option from the drop down menu, and change the language to New Zealand English.
Badabing badaboom, done!
Because of this and when in a hurry, I have accidentally made bookings on the wrong dates before. If it wouldn't be for some hosts messaging things like "see you on Friday" (instead of Saturday), I wouldn't have noticed. Very annoying.
Same here, I just made a booking, thinking about Saturday to Sunday night, just by looking at the calendar as it was organized by weeks, which in the end turned out to be a Friday to Saturday night booking. So an option for choosing which type of week start you prefer seems like mandatory to prevent this kind of confusions.
Now I have to wait when the host will aprove my date change, while this other date can be booked by someone else.
I have a Samsung and the calendar starts Sunday, but my partner has an Apple and calendar is starting on Monday.. would love to have the week starting on a Monday since I do most of the organising and then wouldn't have to double/triple check days of the week all the time!
