Workflow conditional day

Recommended Posts

Depending on the day of the week, I have a different context at work. So when I trigger my workflow with "morning", I want to get a different output depending on the day of the week.



monday to thursday => open URL X

friday => open URL Y


On friday I tried the condition "if {date:EEEE} is equal to Friday", but it did not work. Am I missing something?

Welcome @sadpotato,


When asking for help with a Workflow, please upload it somewhere (transfer.sh is a fast solution without ads; drop your Workflow in the box in the middle) as we can’t properly help you without access to it. Debugging can already be hard with access to the code, and you’re asking us to guess yours from a description. There are multiple places where your code or Workflow setup may be going wrong. Without looking at it we’re shooting in the dark.

Read the Reporting Problems with Workflows topic, as it gives a nice overview on how to build an effective report.

{date:...} expansions don’t work in that field (only {query} and {var:…})



Use an Arg & Vars utility to set {query} or a variable to the weekday, then test {query} or the variable in the Conditional.
