    How to display day from the date field in email alert? Can I add days to those dates?

    Asked by juicebureau on August 03, 2015 at 11:58 PM
    Can I add days to those dates? ("Thursday 6-8-2015" instead of just "6-8-2015")

    Hello juicebureau,

    Unfortunately it is currently not possible to get the day name form the selected date field. One possible workaround to achieve your requirement is to use "Form Calculation" widget to use the dateString function to achieve your requirement. Please check the screenshot below:


    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    It's actually possible to edit the date tag in the email alert to include the day. This guide explains how to do it. If you need further help with this, please inform us.
