Issue/Introduction

When creating an ad-hoc report using weekly periods, the data warehouse is starting on Monday.

However, in Modern UX as well as fiscal periods, the weekly dates start on Sunday.

Why is there a difference?

Cause

This may be caused by the Weekly Data Warehouse slices and the First Day of the Week are set to Monday, where the fiscal weekly periods start on Sunday.

Environment

Release : 15.9.3

Component : CLARITY DATA WAREHOUSE

Resolution

If confirmed that the First Day of the Week can be changed do the following:

  • Pause jobs:  Load Data Warehouse and Time Slicing
  • Go to Administration - Project Management Settings
  • Change the First Day of the Week to Sunday.
  • Go to Administration Time Slices
  • Find the weekly time slices that are Data warehouse enabled.  OOTB there are 13.
  • Change each of these to start on Sunday instead of Monday.
  • Resume Time Slicing
  • Once the slices repopulate
  • Run Full Load Data Warehouse.

Now the Week Start will be Sunday for and ad-hoc or reports.

The only caveat here is that in Classic, the weekly TSV always start on Monday.
