Yk, I think weekends and ‘starting days of the week’ are and should be treated as different things in the app.
I think it’ll be a good idea to let users have the option to set any day (even weekdays) as the ‘starting day of the week’.
A quick google has told me that although the practice of marking holidays and, by extension, weekends in red is a tradition rooted in Christendom: it is nowadays accepted and followed throughout the world without anyone being bothered. I’ve even googled the calendars of a bunch of countries (with non-Western weekends) and it seems like everyone prints holidays in red; so ML will be good denoting weekends in red.
I don’t think it’d be possible to assess users’ weekdays/weekends accurately just from someone’s location because different workplaces might have different policies on that.
It’d be better to let there be an option to select:
- ‘Start day of the week’
- Day’s to be highlighted
Which would give us a universal and inclusive solution that would fit every user’s needs?
