Hi @PamelaLandy,

The way I'd tackle this is using the format-date-time function which allow you to convert date objects into strings. There's more info in the Dates and Time in Survey123 - Esri Community blog post, but I've taken the table below from that post and modified it to return just the three letter short text day (Sun, Mon, ...).

 

typenamelabelcalculation
dateTimewsdatetimeSample Date/Time 
calculatewstimeTimeformat-date(${wsdatetime},'%a')

 

Best,

Gerhard
