Hi @Bhupender_Bhutani

Do you need to use the day name during data collection in the field? Or you require that at data analysis? If its at data analysis I suggest you do the conversation post data collection.

We need to use day name at the time of data collection in field.

You can use the format-date function as described here. Please note that in Collect v1.9.1 and previous the day and month names ( %b and %a) are always shown in English rather than being localized to match Collect's language. The next release should fix this.

Thank you
My problem solved.
