    Is there a calendar widget that auto populates the day of the week as well as the date.

    Asked by hbcoshannon on July 29, 2015 at 04:00 PM

    I'd like to offer a drop down calendar where you can choose the date, but once it's chosen there is a box that auto-populates the corresponding day of the week.  Basically, on the submission end we need to see the day of the week at-a-glance, but also need the date.  Any ideas?

    To do that you will need to add 2 fields to your form and set few conditions:

    1. A DateTime field found under Quick Tools

    2. add any field that you prefer. I would suggest adding TextBox field from Form Tools:

    The only thing that is left now is to set the conditions to check which day it is.

    We do that through Update a Form Field value option in conditions:

    And then set it to check which day it is and enter the same value into the text box:

    That is it :)

    Of course you need to repeat the steps for all days of the week :)

    Do let us know however if you have any further questions along the way and we would be happy to assist.
