    Hello Michelle,

    Thank you for reaching out to Jotform Support. If I'm understanding this correctly, do you wish to show the specific day based on the date picker field? If so, what I would recommend is to add the Form Calculation widget, use the Date string option to calculate the day on the date picker field. To do so, please follow the steps and screencast below:

    • In the Form Builder, click the Add Element + on the left side.
    • Click on the Widgets tab, and look for Form Calculation.
    • Drag and drop the widget to your form.
    • Click the Wand icon to open its Properties settings.
    • Click on the three dots icon to add the Datestring feature, and then add the date picker field.
    • Don't forget to save the changes.


    If you need further assistance, please let us know.
