Is there a way to report as an output variable the "day of week?" In my IDF the "Day of Week for Start Day" is a Thursday and I want to debug operation scheduling during specific days. For example, how can I quickly assess what day corresponds to 05/30? FYI: I tried formatting the cells in excel Home>date (custom date format) but that approach does not do the trick.

The Site:Location object has an output variable called "Site Day Type Index". Output values are integers that align with specific day types that can have unique schedule profiles.

  • 1 = Sunday
  • 2 = Monday
  • ...
  • 7 = Saturday
  • 8 = Holiday
  • 9 = SummerDesignDay
  • 10 = WinterDesignDay
  • 11 = CustomDay1
  • 12 = CustomDay2
