Working with a Calendar List

Hi team,


Hope all's well. I've created and app that works off of a Sharepoint Calendar List and have a few, hopefully simple questions. It's a simple desk booking app to help the allocation of seats to users but there are a few odd bugs I've noticed and wonder whether anyone here would know the answer.


1) Is there a way to set it so it defaults to the day selected in the calendar? At the moment, whatever you click a day in the calendar, and then select new, the app opens and defaults to 31/01/2000. To overcome that I've set it up to default to today's date but it'd be good to get it to default to the day selected in the calendar directly. 


2) is there an easy way to change the Sharepoint calendar view setup so that it starts on Monday, rather than Sunday?

Ok, figured out how to change the default start date - I assumed it was under list settings but instead it's under Site Settings > Region Settings where you can amend how SP views a week. 

I'm presuming that the calendar day select relationship with a built in app is a design blindspot...
