Has the ability to state a type (start day) in WEEKNUMBER been removed

Options

I had this formula which generated a week number with the start date being Friday due to the type being '15'

=IF(Date@row <> "", WEEKNUMBER(Date@row, 15), "")

which used to work.

Now the type within the function seems to be ignored.

Has the ability to specify a week start date within the WEEKNUMBER function been removed

Thanks

    Hey @RichardJ

    It sounds like you may be referring to an Excel function. Smartsheet's WEEKNUMBER Function does not have the ability to add in a "type" to adjust when the week starts. Smartsheet calculates week numbers based on Mondays.

    In the meantime, how I personally adjust this is by using the WEEKDAY function as well. I my sheets, my work week starts on a Sunday, so I've adjusted the formula like so:

    =IF(WEEKDAY(Date@row) = 1, WEEKNUMBER(Date@row) + 1, WEEKNUMBER(Date@row))

    If your week starts on a Friday, you could do something similar:

    =IF(OR(WEEKDAY(Date@row) = 1, WEEKDAY(Date@row) >= 6), WEEKNUMBER(Date@row) + 1, WEEKNUMBER(Date@row))

    Cheers,
