It would be nice if there was an option to choose a formatting which includes the day of the week.Instead of 1/1/2020 --> monday 1/1/2020
Hi @Youtube_vpro - although you can’t directly format a date field this way, you can create a second formula field which allows this:
DATETIME_FORMAT(Date, 'dddd DD/MM/YYYY')
While you can do this with an extra field, I don’t think users should have to make a separate field for this, especially for when users only need to show the date differently without any additional formulas/info. Additional date formatting would be much appreciated.
Thanks for the suggestions, but I still think it’s not the optimal solution. (And it doesn’t seem a big feature to add)
This solution means that I need to use to an extra field with a date, and the day of the week formatted field can’t be used as an input. At the moment I have an extra field with a formula to get the day of the week. But I would like to have just one field with the complete date and day of the week!
Agreed! Just a workaround for now, although appreciate it might not work for you.
Surely this cant be that hard to add??
Any update on this feature please?
Unfortunately Airtable devs are notoriously tight-lipped re: their development plans. If they openly announce it here (or it just shows up someday), that’s the only “answer” we get to that question. Sorry.
