Changing the Week Starting on a Summary Report from Sunday to Monday

Currently I'm building out a payroll application and trying to provide summary level data using the Summary Reports. When summarizing by Date and for a Week, it list "Week Beginning on Sunday". This is confusing my users greatly as we're focused on Monday being the start of the work week. I can't seem to find an override for all of the default report date filters and criterias. It's all based on a Sunday start for the week.

Construction just doesn't work that way. There has to be a better means to modify the global calendar settings.

Okay, I figured out a means to trick the system. I had to build a field that returns the Monday based on a Date. I then had to summarize by this field on a Day level, not a week. My frustrations still exist as I have to modify all of my date filters in reports since the QB system still views Sunday to Saturday as a week.

Worst yet, there is the simplest setting in the App Properties that I missed. Now all my frustration is focused on my own incompetence.

Yeah the dropdown for that is buried down in the app properties page if it isn't something you are looking for.
