When we create a date field, we’re allowed to choose from 5 different date formats.
It would be amazing if we also had the additional option to add the DAY NAME in front of the date.
So, in other words, our date field could be formatted to look like this:
I know that we can create another field called “Day Name” and create a formula to calculate the day name, but it would be much more convenient (and more user-friendly) if the day name was simply just another type of date formatting that could be directly applied to the date field itself.
(We’re coming to Airtable from the FileMaker world, and this is how FileMaker handles date fields — FileMaker can apply any type of formatting directly onto a date field, without requiring any additional fields nor additional formulas.)
