Hello

I have a questionnaire that is sent out on different days to people. I want a question to say

In the past seven days, since last {day of week} did you....

I'm wondering if there is a way to get this dynamically? I know the date is captured as a field but is there a way to convert that to day of the week and insert? I also looked at the date/time question but did not see how to display as text ie Wednesday.

Thanks
Andy

You can use the Expression Manager date() function to pipe in the current day of the week:

In the past seven days, since last {date('l')}, did you....
