Amazon QuickSight is excited to announce the launch of Custom Week Start feature, an addition designed to enhance the data analysis experience for customers across diverse industries and social contexts. Previously, QuickSight defaulted to starting the week on Sunday, offering no flexibility for customers to designate their preferred week start day. With the Custom Week Start feature, QuickSight authors can customize the start day of the week with a single click. QuickSight will then seamlessly convert all date-aware dimensions, calculated fields, and filters aggregated at the week level to be aligned with the selected week start day.

The new Custom Week Start feature is now available in Amazon QuickSight Standard and Enterprise Editions in all QuickSight regions - US East (N. Virginia and Ohio), US West (Oregon), Canada (Central), South America (São Paulo), Europe (Frankfurt, Stockholm, Paris, Ireland and London), Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo), and the AWS GovCloud (US-West) Region.
