Optimizing Week Calculation in Domo: Shifting Start Day to Monday


Domo's WEEK function typically starts the week from Sunday, which might not align with your reporting needs. We'll address this limitation and guide you on how to modify the calculation to start the week on Monday instead.

Solution: Adjusting the Week Calculation: Domo's environment might not directly support certain date manipulation functions. To overcome this, we'll leverage the CASE statement to conditionally adjust the date based on the day of the week. Here's a snippet you can use:


This query checks if the day of the week is Sunday and, if so, subtracts 6 days from the original timestamp to align the week with a Monday start. If it's not Sunday, it uses the original InitiationTimestamp. The WEEK function is then applied to the adjusted or original date.

Implementation Steps:

  1. Replace Timestamp with your actual timestamp field.
  2. Insert this modified SQL snippet into your Domo dataset where you're calculating the week.

By making this simple adjustment, you can seamlessly align your week calculations with a Monday start in Domo. This workaround ensures your reporting reflects the week structure that best fits your business requirements. Feel free to tailor the solution to your specific needs and make the most out of Domo's powerful analytics capabilities.
