    Extracting day of week from Date field to create Conditions

    Asked by duqlaw on August 04, 2015 at 11:22 AM

    Hello, is it possible for the date field once selected to tell you the day of the week?

    As you see in my form, I have a condition based on the day of the week (M-F) that is manually selected by the user. It would be preferable that once a user selects a calendar date, jotform could automatically tell me what day of the week that is so I can create the conditions I have set based on that

    Thanks, Chris

    We do have conditions that evaluate the selected day of the week, you need to use the standard DateTime field to be able to utilize it in the condition
