    Change date format to display the day

    Asked by Henry Long  on March 30, 2015 at 06:45 AM

    My form asks users to submit a deadline date.  The Deadline Date field collects the month, day, year and time.  But, I would like to format the date once it appears on my report to include the DAY OF THE WEEK (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc...).  How can I do this?  Please help.


    Please see page 20 of my form.

    I understand that you want to show the day of the week in your report using the date field on the form. Unfortunately, it seems that it is currently not possible except for using full length date string using DateString function from the conditions. Or you may need to add a dropdown box by selecting days as the preselected options that needs to be selected manually.

    Please see the demo form below :


    Please see if that works for you. Let us know if you mean to ask something different. We will be happy to help.

    yes i wanted to be able to do this as well. It is much more professional when sending the email auto responders to say 

    Your booking for sunday 19th April 2015 is complete

    rather than

    Your booking for 19/04/15 is complete

    Is there really no way this can be included without having customers fill in seperate boxes?
