If we already have a setting for the Work Week as 'Sunday to Monday' - what will be the impact on existing timesheets / time etc. if we change it to Monday to Sunday?

Seems I'm unable to edit my own post so I'll re-post the question correctly here:

If we already have a setting for the Work Week as 'Sunday to Saturday - what will be the impact on *existing* items in the timesheet/expenses/billing system if we change it to Monday to Sunday?

Hi Dylan,

Thank you for using Replicon community,

Work week is mainly used for overtime calculations and validation rules as shown below in the sample screenshots. So changes to the work week will impact how overtime is calculated for users, and how timesheets are validated before submission. 




May I know why are you planning to change the work week? What is the problem you are trying to solve?

Regards,
Lingaraj

So the reason is simply that the system has been setup with the setting of Sunday to Saturday which, in retrospect, is not what we want. Would I be correct in assuming that changing this would essentially mean that any overtime (or calculation of max/min hours) would only be affected for the week during the transition if we changed this? (as I side-note - we're fortunate in that we don't have overtime for the last few periods and are OK without min/max hours at the moment).

Yes Dylan, you are right. Only during in the transition period, you will see the impact of this change.
