    Hello. If someone fills out a form and picks a specific calendar date, is there a way to have the day of the week displayed along with the date?

    Hi @kaiphoto!

    Unfortunately, the only way to achieve this is to also add this feature on your form with a little workaround, you can add this feature to your form.

    To do that, you need one "Text box" field and use "Update/Calculate Field" condition. After setting your "DateTime" field to show the current date, you can set the following condition for the "Text box" field just like the following. In addition, you can hide the "DateTime" field, if you just want to use customized "Text Box" field to show date.

    Here is a demo form: https://form.jotform.com/91086639930970

    Thank you Zuri! Could you tell me where to get the "text box" field from?
    In the form elements options, I see "Text" or "short text entry" but
    neither of them has conditional options.
