how can I insert a new column obtaining the weekday name and the short date?

Hello everyone! 

 

I need your help, in my rolling calender Table I want to add a new column which contains the name of the weekday and also the short date format --> example: Monday, 23.08.2021

 

Is this possible?

 

Looking forward to your suggestions!!! ❤️

@Anonymous , Once you click on a date column. Then in format, you can choose this format

 

Or in the Data model view, You can give format under the property

Or create a new column, but that will be text

new col = format([Date], "dddd dd.mm.yyyy")
